    Hi guys I am new to the forums, (so don't know if this the right place or not) But I’ve been having some strange internet issues on my 2013 macbook pro (13inch), running mountain lion.

    Basically Messages, mail and update wont work and in safari and chrome websites seem slower (like http://www.jpmorgan.com/pages/jpmorgan) and others simply wont load like (https://www.mywhu.whu.edu). However it is notable that Opera seems work fine !

    Moreover I have tried pinging yahoo.com and seemed to work normally. Also my iPhone seems to work fine on the wifi too.

    So what can I do? :confused:

    jpmorgan loads a bunch of html5 (tons and tons of javascript) so it's slow on even the best connection. I took a look at whu.edu and it seems to load just fine. When one browser works while the others don't, it's an important clue. I often have pages that are slow to load if I fail to run an adblocker. Once the slow ads are out of the way, most pages load a lot faster. Another possibility to consider is DNS. When I have "strange" internet problems, one of my common diagnosis steps is to use google's dns 8.8.8.8 just to make sure my ISP isn't slowing me down by slow response to dns requests.

    Nice job getting your hands on a 2013 Macbook. ;). Let me know when the time machine is available for my use. I'd like a 2025 Macbook myself. :D

    So was the 2013 model retina in the end?
