This has been working fine for months and I updated to 10.8.3 a week ago with no problems. Starting this morning I can no longer access the internet with Safari or Firefox (running Mountain Lion), and Mac Mail does not work. My wifi network is working. In fact I am writing this using a VNC connection to my desktop. Also FileMaker can see the office server and runs fine. Booting into Snow Leopard, Safari connects fine, so it does not seem to be a hardware problem. I have reset PRAM, and the SMC. I have cleaned caches and run other maintenance scripts with Onyx. I have repaired the disk with Disk Utility and DiskWarrior. Any advice?" MacInTouch 9:10 PM
