View Full Version : Safari Problem - not connected to Internet

Hi internet folk,

Ever since I got iMac I have been having problems with Safari.
It randomly tells me I am not connected to the internet, even though I am. It lasts for about a minute, then my connection re-appears.

This happens in Safari 3 and 4. I have also tried re-installing both.

And this only happens on my iMac, no tother computers I have.

Can anyone help?

sounds like a DNS timeout issue.

Harry go into System Preferences and see if there are three lots of web addresses under Network>Advanced>DNS. The greyed out address is your computer address and also should appear your ISP Primary and Secondary addresses.

If not there ask your ISP for them. Speeds up Mail, connections etc etc.
