    Since thurs (coincidentally when I purchased a new iphone), my 2 year old macbook will not load web pages via our wireless router.

    We have it hooked up to a Netgear G router and it freezes in both safari and firefox when loading webpages.

    I figured the router had lived its life, but oddly enough I can still download emails and when I load Windows via boot camp on the same device, the internet works fine

    Any ideas? I have reset the router, cable modem, etc.

    Can you create a new user and see if it works fine in there? I want to know whether to work in the user home folder or system folders.

    I also can load internet from hotspots.

    Loading a new user does not help

    Which OS are you using? This sounds like an AirPort issue.

    i doubt that it's the same in your case but last week (friday for me) there was a horrendous storm in my area and that caused the power to go out for 30+ hours. that happening reset all of my network passwords on my devices and even for the network itself. so maybe you just need a generic password like 1234512345 or something

    I am using Leopard.7

    It actually did occur during some moderate storms (which is what I wrote it up to originally). I have now reset all my networks so I dont think that is it.

    Also, I am able to load internet in public wireless using both mac/windows.
