    Safari will no longer go online ... Just happened this morning. I tried rebooting the router many times. Also rebooted the Modem. Restarted my MacPro many times .... Trashed Safari and reinstalled fresh copy from Apple.

    Safari still will not go online at all. Continue to get this error message:

    "Safari can't connect to the server."

    Safari can't open the page "http://www.google.com/" because Safari can't connect to the server "www.google.com".

    You should have checked Network Preferences before considering power cycling the modem or the router. Reinstalling Safari also seems a bit excessive and unnecessary. Did you try other websites, or just Google.com?

    I did try other websites. My Archos tablet and my son's computer were getting online just fine, so I knew that our Internet connection (Modem and Router) was working.

    Problem solved:

    Followed the instructions, and now Safari is back to normal.
