So I am a mac n00b and I am kinda lost on what my issue is. I am unable to access certain websites and certain websites load in a very basic html page. I can not view apples website. I can view ebays site perfectly fine except when I try to log on, it takes me to a chopped up looking log in page with no pictures and all the words and forms are on different lines. This happens in all of my browsers and only to certain websites or certain parts of them. I recently plugged in my ethernet cable to run speedtests on my modem and I think doing that somehow messed something up in the osx settings. I am also running parallels with windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10 and they both have the same issue with ie/firefox. My other computer runs everything perfectly so I am certain its related to some setting in osx yet I am unable to figure this out. Could someone point me in the right direction to get this mess sorted out.
