    Downloaded + installed (upgrade, not clean) ML on my iMac this morning to find that the internet isn't working properly; the computer seemingly connects to the network fine (I've got full bars and an IP address), but nothing will load. Not in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Mac App Store, iTunes, etc. I restarted the computer a few times, and once, I was able to get sites to load (albeit slowly). Not really sure how to go about trying to solve this, so any suggestions would be great.

    bump x2

    (I probably shouldn't be doing this, but it's kinda crippling to have a computer without internet)

    Unfortunately, no; the iMac is much too far from the modem/router.

    I looked on the Apple Discussions site and found this thread, which seems to be regarding a similar if not identical problem, but to workaround it is to turn off a VPN, which I'm not aware of having: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4137014?start=0&tstart=0
