    My Safari won't open, it just bounces in the dock for around 30 seconds and then i'll get the spinning umbrella. So i'll quit safari and i try again and nothing

    Ive been using Opera for a while now, but i would like to fix my safari.

    So what should i do?

    Any Help really appreciated

    My MacBook was working perfectly for awhile. Now everytime i open Safari it tells me i have no connection to the internet even though the AirPort signal is at full strength ! Network Diagnostics is not doing anything to cure it . It picks up the wireless network where I work immediately bit not here at home !
    very frustrating ! Any ideas ? I'd need step by step instructions on this one as my techie skills are very basic ! Tnks

    Are you using NetGear router? Anyway it happens to me occasionally, this is a known Leopard issue and should be fixed by 10.5.2

    Is your wireless connection working? If your computer can pick up the signal, it suggests that the router connection is the problem rather than the laptop. Turn your router off for 10 seconds and turn it back on.

    Try clearing the application cache's with Onyx.

    You'll have to use the install disks that came with your Mac. However, I don't recommend you trash Safari. That's a bit extreme of a measure to take.

    Instead, reboot first.

    Try it out. I assume the problem comes back. Repair disk utility by going to

    Finder>>Applications>>Utilities>>Disk Utility

    It's a Netopia Router 3347NWG. The router is working fine with a desktop PC and another wireless Sony Laptop but not with the MacBook !!

    Which version of Safari are you using? I was using the new beta version, but it was so slow and quirky I dumped it and just use Firefox now.
