Sporadic no internet access in Safari, Skype works

Hey guys,
First - sorry for my poor english. I switched to Mac some months ago, i have the newest type of a Macbook pro. It is connected by Wireless Lan (100Mbit) to the internet.
I have following problem:
Often i cannot load a page (google.com or ebay.com), or it is not completely loaded. In this time Skype is working without any problems (video chat). I tried to install Google Chrome to see if Safari makes the problem, but also here i get this effect.
Does somebody has a suggestion for me how i can find the problem? In Windows systems i know some ways like check in the task manager the usage of the network adapter

Safari 5.0.1 or later: Slow or partial webpage loading, or webpage cannot be found

  • WRT54GS Internet Access Restriction Doesn't Work

    I have a WRT54GS wirless router and I can't get the internet access restriction capability to work. I'm trying to limit the time my kid's spend on their laptops, but the settings don't seem to take hold.
    I have upgraded to the latest firmware (V4.71.1) for my router. (AT least I think it's the latest). I am using the Wireless MAC Filter for security, so only my family's PC's can access my wireless router (and I'm not broadcasting my SSID to the world). In the Internet Access Restriction screen, I have my kid's PC's MAC addresses in the PC list... same ones that I'm using to allow them to access the router, so I know they're correct. Then I have set the settings to 'Deny' internet access during specific time periods: 12:00 am - 1: 00 pm, 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm, and 10:00 pm - 11:55 pm. I have 'Enabled' and 'Save Settings', so they should be live. After all this, my kids can still access the internet... this just doesn't seem to work.
    Any ideas? Shouldn't this work even without the latest firmware?

    Open the setup page of the router,Set the Radio Band to Standard-20MHz and change the Standard channel to 11-2.462GHz..Under Advanced Wireless Settings..Change the Beacon Interval to 50,Change the Fragmentation Threshold to 2304,Change the RTS Threshold to 2304 and Click on Save Settings...Also reduce the MTU size to 1350.
    For Access Restriction,try this link.

  • New iPad 4G internet access lost during Skype video calls, also to all apps...

    i have the New (3rd generation) iPad 4G 32 Gb and i noticed that i totally lost internet connection during Skype video calls. The wifi signal is full but loosing the internet connection. Trying other apps like safari after the failure i don't have also internet access. After turninmg off & on afain wifi from iPad's settings everything returns to normal state.
    No other wifi problems when not using Skype for iPad, no problems with Facetime or any other application, no problem with any other device, i also have an iPhone 4 and an iPhone 3GS without any connection or internet problems.
    Any idea? Is it a Skype problem, or iPad's know wifi problem?

    I also noticed the same problem not only using Skype, but with other application also.
    Wifi signal is full, but loosing internet connection.
    Any idea please ? Have to return it back for repair ? It's only 2 weeks old....

  • Why no internet access after Safari reinstallation (router does)?

    Since yesterday I have a massive problem I hope someone can help me out.
    To start with I couldn´t email attachments since a few months. Yesterday I thought a re-installation of Safari (browser recommended by the provider) might cure that as I thought recent upgrades (recommended by apple to install) caused that problem which was not there last year.
    So I downloaded Safari from apple.com. From that on I can´t get any internet access anymore (only a few minutes after the first start, then never again), even after spending 40 minutes on my providers extremely expensive hotline no solution (other than that the friendly lady told me to contact this forum). My router has internet access, and the cable between router and my Mac is definetely fine, but when I open the internet-access window, the connection immiadetely crashes always.
    I checked network utilities and found no failure, I tried different ways of access via the network settings, nothing works. I assume it has something to do with the re-installation of Safari, but why on earth should the standard Safari 1.2-version from Apples own website create such a mess?
    Shall I install firefox? Shall I dump the Safari-version installed yesterday and install a copy of the updated version from my office computer instead? What else could cause the problem? Are my network settings wrong? Should I log in via "manual" or DHCP (the provoders hotline told me I should re-type PPP settings. Though that is clearly to see a no-option with Ethernet she kept telling me so. Isn´t PPP only for modem-connection?), or via PPoE? Or shall I re-install the router?
    I would be more than glad if someone could help me.

    We can keep it in English as its an english speaking forum and therefore non-germans who might have the same problem could participate. If for you German is better I´m fine with it. Most settings on my Mac are in German so if it becomes too specific, german is anyway necessary.

    Reading over your post its best to give Cisco Small Business Support Center a call @ 1-866-606-1866 and open a support case. We need to get a better understanding on how everything thing is connected and configured. There is a lot of conflicting information and could case possible topology integrity if not corrected.

  • No internet access while watching HBO on my laptop

    When I watch HBO on my laptop, my wireless connectivity goes to no internet access frequently.  It works okay when I disconnect and re-connect.  However, there is no problem when I am watching youtube or other channels on laptop. Internet connection is fine generally, but this frequent issue is troubling. 

    You probably need to allow the new version of Firefox to have access through your Firewall program. See this for instructions for the most popular Firewall programs. <br />

  • HT6114 I installed Mavericks and now safari wont work.  Help!

    I gleefully installed Mavericks thinking I was doing the right thing.  After an hour of figuring out that I had internet connectivity but Safari wasnt working I spent several more hours trying to figure out what to do .  I did not back up the system before I upgraded (brillinat decision on my part) but now I am stuck.  Do I just use Firefox or chrome which dont seeem to have problems and wait until Apple comes out with a fix or???? I thought getting an Apple was supposed to avoid this kind of issue.

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a Fusion Drive or a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • Allow applet internet access?

    How do I allow an applet access to the internet?

    If you sign it, you can do almost everything an application does,
    - Use URLConnection to any site
    - Open Sockets to any server
    If this is what you mean by Internet access, yes, it will work.
    If you only need to access the server from where the applet originates,
    you don't even have to sign it.

  • Airport Extreme - Remote is not passing internet access - help please

    I have the following:
    Cable modem - > WAN of Airport Extreme. - works perfectly - wireless clients in range get internet access and the network works.
    Second Airpot Extreme set to relay this network. It connects, gets a "green" light - seems to be set up properly, but wireless clients in that area cannot get internet. Why is it not passing internet.
    Can anyone explain step by step how to do this or post a link to an apple doc?
    Thank you,

    Hi, actually this is still not working.
    I got the second base station configured so that when it started up, it was working properly as a "remote" station, and I was getting internet fine through an ibook there (which is normally too far away from the main station to get any signal).
    However, today, although the second "remote" station still has a green light and is connected to the network it is not getting an IP address from the main base station - and so I can't get any internet through that 2nd base station anymore.
    Why was it working yesterday and not today when I've changed nothing?
    Any help much appreciatd.

  • RVS4000 Internet Access Policy issues after FW upgrade to

    we run a small home/business network using an RVS4000v1. Everything is pretty simple and straight forward. We use 10 different Internet Access Policies (IAP) that's it. We recently upgraded the Firmware to
    Since then all IPaddresses (that is 2 IPaddresses in total) that have 24 hr access to the internet will get cut off the internet just before/around midnight. All IAPs that use a time window (e.g. 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM) are working fine (also on the next day).
    The web GUI still works and the status of the routers still says its up and the WAN access is up as well. We have to reboot the router (through the webGUI) to get 24hr access again or save the same IAP again.
    Reading the release note for FW I note that there is a know issue with IAP.
    The second Internet access policy does not work.
    Work Around: Configure only one Internet access policy within a 24-hour
    I am just not sure how to read it.
    Is it only the second IAP that has the issue (and the IAP numbers 3 to 10 do not)? Or will only ONE IAP work and no others?
    Or is the second policy that uses a 24hr setting meant to be the issue? If this was the case, could a work around be to set the time from 00:05 AM to 11:55 PM (or in my case 00:05 to 23:55)?
    We appreciate your help

    The issue is resolved. I just switched off my phone and removed the battery. Inserted the battery after a minute or so and everything seems to be fine. Even the available memory shown is around 25.15 GB.I had even forgotten to take a backup before upgrading to PR 1.3. Still all my Photos,Videos,Documents are as they were before upgrading.
    Thankfully i can heave a sigh of relief now

  • Can't Access Internet or E-mail but Skype Works

    I am no longer able to access the Internet using Safari or Firefox and cannot send or receive e-mail using the Mail application. However, Skype works which indicates there is an Internet connection. Attempts to ping Internet locations fail. I also have a Windows XP computer which is able to connect to the Internet using the same Internet connection as my MAC. I am stumped on this one.
    Has anyone else experienced this? Any help is appreciated!!

  • Safari and firefox stop working after a few minutes of browsing, regardless of what site I'm on. I have to restart my computer to get internet access again but it only works for a few more minutes, then I have to restart again. Please help!

    Safari and firefox stop working after a few minutes of browsing, regardless of what site I'm on. I have to restart my computer to get internet access again but it only works for a few more minutes, then I have to restart again. I don't get a spinning ball, it just stops working at whatever page it's on. I can close the program just fine but when I re-open it, either safari or firefox, it freezes trying to load the hompage. This started a few days ago after trying to stream a movie on my computer. I'm on a Mac Air OS X Version 10.6.8 and have downloaded all updates. When I go into finder, it says I have over 80 gigs available. Is there some other memory cache that I need to check? Thanks so much for your help.

    It's not a router problem as I explained in my post. If it was a router problem then I wouldn't have the problem everywhere I go. It is an issue with the software.
    Then I guess the millions of people running 10.5.7 with no issues are just hallucinating that their machines are working fine?
    I'm not trying to belittle your issues; you're certainly having them and I know first hand how annoying an intermittent AirPort issue can be. (In fact, mine was due to an AirPort driver bug that no one else seemed to suffer from.)
    The single best diagnostic you could do is take your system running 10.5.7 to an Apple Store, and try using their in-store network.
    If your machine performs flawlessly, it may be a router issue.
    If your machine has connectivity issues there, it may be a hardware problem with your machine.
    There have been numerous people in multiple threads over the years who swore that an update was buggy because things used to work, but returned later to sheepishly admit that they took their machine in, a problem was found and fixed, and now their Mac works flawlessly with the newer software.
    But simply reinstalling 10.5.5 in no way means the explanation of how firmware bugs may be at play here is incorrect.
    In the context of that explanation, all you've done is possibly reinstall software that asks to add "2 + 3."

    Sounds like a bogus pop up. In any case power down your Mac, your modem, your router. Then power back up in 1 minute sequence; modem, router, Mac.

  • IPad and PPTP VPN - Internet access (e-mail & Safari) not working

    Hi there!
    I've got an iPad2 (WiFi only) and need to configure it to use Witopia PPTP VPN, which is the VPN provider I've been using for a long time on my desktop and netbook.
    Configure the iPad was an easy task, and I was able to successfuly authenticate and establish a PPTP session with any of the Witopia servers.
    The problem is that once established the PPTP session, if the "send all traffic" option is ON, I have no Internet access at all (no e-mail neither browsing with Safari). Then, if I stop VPN, turn OFF the "send all traffic" option in the iPad, and start VPN again, I have Internet communication back and everything starts working fine. I've been fiddling with this in my home network (D-Link Dir-655 router using the IP addressing scheme for my LAN).
    Obviously, I decided to leave the "send all traffic" option OFF, but then I discovered that doing this my Safari traffic is not encrypted and my IP is not masked, i.e. the VPN is up and running, I have normal Internet traffic, but the service to be provided by the VPN for some inknown reason is not happening.
    Does anyone have a clue about what's going on ?

    Have you tried a battery pull?  If not, give that a try and then try again.
