Software Update Cannot connect and Safari cannot connect to URLs

I have copied this problem report from the Safari forum in the hope that I may get some additional help here.
This morning I went to the local library and connected to the internet directly using airport to their WAN. So I now know my problem is independent of the weird dial up arrangement I have at home.
Safari still does not open the sites. It gives a message "Cannot open page "x" because it cannot connect to server "X""
When I open Firefox all my sites are working normally. (I also downloaded and installed Firefox 3 this morning)
I have reset Safari but that does not help.
I have even downloaded the latest greatest version of safari (the beta 4) but it exhibits the same problems
When I invoke Software Update it claims I am not connected to the internet. Does this depend on Safari? Is there a preference I can change to make it work through Firefox
When I invoke internet connect diagnostics it says my internet connection is working normally.

Hi Steve,
Great clues there!
FF uses it's own Proxy & DNS settings for a couple of things, where Safari & other Apple Apps use System Preferences.
First, Go to System Preferences>Network, Show Airport>Proxies tab, make sure no Proxies are set.
Second, Try putting these numbers in Network>TCP/IP>DNS Servers, for the Airport Interface...
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
Then Apply
DNS Servers are a bit like Phone books where you look up a name and it gives you the phone number, in our case, you put in apple.com and it comes back with 17.149.160.49 behind the scenes.
These Servers have been patched to guard against DNS poisoning, and are faster/more reliable than most ISP's DNS Servers.

    Reset everything.. did you do this?
    Tap Settings / General / Reset / Reset Network Settings
    If you're already been there, done that, could be a third party app preventing Safari from accessing the web.
    Re sync your apps 5 at a time, then test the iPad.

    OR...
    Do not use Wi-Fi and connect Directly to your Internet via ethernet cable.

  • HT201210 My partner updated iphone 5, and it now shows 'Connect to iTunes'. Then we get 'iTunes could not contact iPhone software update server because you are not connected to the internet'. Please help.

    iPhone 5 was updated (version unknown), and now screen shows 'Connect to iTunes.  When we try to do this, we get message 'iTunes could not contact the iPhone software update server because you are not connected to the internet'. 
    Please tell me how I fix this problem.
    Thanks

    Yes, the reason you are getting the error is the phone cannot provide internet for the laptop and then update itself. It would lose connection as you erase the firmware and try to update. You need to connect the computer to the Internet in some other fashion before you connect the phone to try and fix the update problem. As Ocean20 says, and I completely agree, how would you think you could use the Internet connection of a device that is not only going to turn off and on, but is going to get completely wiped of firmware and restored? It would completely remove the device from the equation here. Does that make sense to you?

  • Cannot open page Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the server

    Hello Apple Experts!!
    I Am Surendra and very new to this forum.. I just came across a problem with my Iphone while connecting to my company WIFI.. we are using Web authentication.. meaning..
    The user will try to connect to the wireless network, the client will get the IP address and they are forced to open up the browser to provide the USERNAME and the PASSWORD on the webpage, once they pass the auth they will be able to access to the internet.
    The WEB PAGE that asks for the USERNAME and the PASSWORD is HTTPS and for some reason that page is not at all opening and i am getting the below error.. If i disable HTTPS on the cisco Device the IPHONE works great..
    Cannot open page Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the server
    This is happening only on the OS 5 and on the OS 4 everything works just great!!
    I have a feeling that this has to do something to do with HTTPS / SSL connection with the IPHONE SAFARI or OS 5
    Am connecting to Cisco Wireless LAN COntroller and the access point acting as the WIFI devices..
    Any help on the same will be much appreciated!!
    Regards

    This appeared to be a more than sufficient cipher list, yet my iPad won't load any page.  I highly doubt it's a problem with SSL2 not being enabled because SSL2 has been deprecated for awhile now.
    Any ideas?

  • Cannot open page: "Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet."

    I got a 32 GB ipod touch for my birthday and no matter how hard I try I can never get on the internet through my wifi. When I go to settings I click on my wifi and when I type in the password there's a blue check on the left but there's still a lock symbol on the right. Everytime I try to go to safari I get the message "Cannot open page: "Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet." I've literally tried everything and would appreciate any help. This has been frustrating me for weeks.

    Were you definitely connected to the internet at the time? If you don't have iOS 5 on your iPhone then the only way to update it would be via iTunes, once updated to the latest version of iOS you'll be able to update your iPhone without connecting to iTunes "over-the-air".
    Before updating however it goes without saying to Backup your iPhone, this should happen by default upon connecting your iPhone to iTunes.

  • Cannot refresh table - test connection works fine but refresh gives "We couldn't refresh the connection. Please go to existing connections and verify they connect to the file or server." error.

    I'm having some difficulty updating a table in my powerpivot data model. The data for the table is stored in a local excel file; if I go to
    Existing Connections select the connection and do a test then everything is successful. When however I try to refresh that particular table I get the following error:
    "We couldn’t refresh the connection. Please go to existing connections and verify they connect to the file or server."
    In the past I had this and it was an authentication issue, the files are stored on SharePoint and I wasn't logged in to Sharepoint - I have however checked this and it can't be the issue because I have other tables linked to other excel files in the same
    location that are refreshing without issue. Can anyone think of what may be causing it?
    I have even tried creating a new local excel with the same data, added it to the data model and then tried a refresh and I I get exactly the same issue. 
    Are there any known issues with refreshing data from an Excel file if, after the initial import, you add columns to the table in the excel file I was wondering if this might contribute?
    Thanks

    Hi Maracles,
    Thanks for your post.

    Hello HaithamOkeely,
    We've an article that provides the following troubleshooting steps that may help stabilize your iPhone.
    If the device is unresponsive or if certain controls aren't working as expected, restart your device.
    If the device remains unresponsive or does not turn on (or power on), reset your device.
    If there is no video or if the screen remains black, verify that the device has enough charge to turn on:
    If you are using an iPad, ensure that it's connected to the USB Power Adapter supplied with the device.
    Let it charge for at least twenty minutes, then see if it starts normally.
    If there is no image on the screen, press the Sleep/Wake button to attempt to wake the device.
    If the screen displays a red battery icon, continue charging the device until the battery is fully charged. Learn more about charging iPhone and iPod touch, or iPad.
    If the above steps do not resolve the issue, or the if the screen remains black or shows a persistent Apple logo, try restoring with iTunes:
    Connect the device to your computer and open iTunes.
    If the device appears in iTunes, select and click Restore on the Summary pane. Learn more aboutrestoring iOS software.
    If the device doesn't appear in iTunes, try to force the device into recovery mode, and then restore it.
    If the above steps do not resolve the issue, contact Apple.
