First off, let me tell you that while I know my way around a computer well, I'm in no way an expert.

Lately, I have had issues opening certain websites. Twitter, macys.com, UPS, etc. For going on a week now, I haven't been able to load the websites at all. Like it just fell off.

I get the "Oops! Google Chrome cannot connect to twitter.com" message (or insert other websites...).

I've tried all the firewall stuff, and am wondering if it may be something deeper or I'm completely overlooking an obvious issue.

Thanks for helping!

Appreciate the pointers!

I'm currently running a 13 inch unibody model from June 09 with snow leopard. I have indeed attempted and successfully loaded the websites in question on my roommates windows based units off of the same wireless network.

browsers (all most recent, stable versions meaning non-beta)

Google Chrome
Safari
Firefox

And what network setup do you employ - wireless network at home with a connection to the internet or university network? What router do you have? Did you restart that router yet? Have you taken a look at System Preferences > Network >> AirPort >>> Advanced >>>> TCP/IP and DNS and can report back what it says there? You can take screenshots if you want.

Try Safari FireFox, I'm switched from Safari to FireFox then now to Chrome so far I don't have any trouble loading unless the internet is slow:)
