OS X :: Can't Browse Secure Websites On Mac Through PPPoE Connection On Briged Router?

Mar 29, 2009

I've set up my Netgear DGN2000 router in bridge mode to accommodate 4 machines to connect to the internet through a PPPoE broadband connection. The mac connects through airport.

All the PC's in the setup can browse without problems.

The mac however can only log into certain secure websites (like facebook, online forums, online banking ext) but then no further browsing is possible. MSN can also not log on. Other websites seems to work just fine.

I'm running OS x 10.4.11, Firefox 3.0.8, Safari 3.0.4.

Steps I have already taken to try and solve the problem is:

Adjusted the MTU value (ranging fro 1500 to 1300) of the router and Mac airport.

Setup up the ISP DNS server ip on the router and / or Mac airport connection. I also tried certain "open" DNS ips.

Cleared the Mac DNS cache

Cleared the browser history and cookies.

OS X :: Weird PPPoE Connection On 10.6.1

Nov 7, 2009

My PPPoE connection is via a direct cable from fiber link and I use no modem. The connection is always successful, but I can not seem to receive any data to load web pages. Weirdly, I can get online on Skype and can do video chats. I called RDSRCS technical assistance(Romania), but all they say is that my connection is good, and I have a problem with my computer, and they don't know much about Mac OS X. Any of you has ever experienced something like this? What could be the problem?

OS X :: Wireless Internet Works - Builtin Ethernet Can Ping But Not Browse Websites

Aug 25, 2010

I recently completely a wire pull from the network hub (Dell Power Connect?) in the office of a church, to a computer in a different room of the church. I plugged in the cat5e cable to the computer, it connects to the network, computers on the network can access it's public folders and remote access it, but the computer cannot browse the internet using the built-in ethernet plug. The wireless-internet on the computer allows me to navigate the internet just fine.

With the Airport turned off, and the ethernet plugged in, I can ping [URL] with 0% packet loss, but when I try to connect to google on Safari or Firefox it says that Safari/Firefox cannot connect to the server.

OS X Technologies :: Cannot Connect To Secure Websites

May 10, 2012

I was going to do some homework on Google Docs, and the login page would not load! It would simply try to connect for a while, then time out.After some experimenting, I noticed this happened with all secure web pages (https://), and that non-secure websites (http://) loaded fine. This happens in all browers. I tested Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.Now, this only happens on my user account. This does not happen on my moms account, which I am currently on.We initially thought it was an issue with the parental controls, so we completely disabled them. But the problem still persists.

MacBook Pro :: Not Accessing Some Secure Websites

Jun 6, 2014

Have updated clock and Apple ID locations.For some reason I am not able to access some bank websites from my Macbook, I just get a "Safari can't open the page "xxxxx" because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server "xxxxxxx". I can access these sites on the same network with my iPad. These are the options I have eliminated: 

BROWSER: Tried Safari, Firefox, Chrome. all with the same result (different message of course).

MODEM: I have connected the Macbook to different wifi networks (home and at work) with the same result, so it is not a modem issue.  

I currently write this post at work on a Mac Mini. The Mac Mini CAN access these websites without issue.This leads me to conclude that something deep in the duldrums of the MacBook itself is preventing access to these types of websites.Macbook Pro is late 2012 model running Mavericks 10.9.3..Work Mac Mini is running Lion 10.7.5 

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

Applications :: Using Safari And Browsing Secure Websites?

Apr 27, 2004

I have been using Safari faithfully since it was released, and in the last week it has developed a strange problem. I can't recall doing anything different that would have caused this problem, but now whenever I try to load a secure website (https), I get the error message "Safari could not load the page https:xxxx because it could not connect to the server." I have tried resetting Safari, but that didn't fix the problem. I have also thrown away the following files (Safari_1.2.pkg, Safari (folder), Safari (application), and com.apple.Safari.plist) and reinstalling a new version of Safari, also without success. I should add that Internet Explorer will always load the pages that choke Safari, but I hate using this program. Has anyone ever heard of this before, and does anyone know how to fix it? Here is a link to the error message I get when I try to log in to my .Mac account:

Software :: Safari Can't Access Secure Websites?

Dec 25, 2009

My dad set up a managed account for me on my family's iMac and now Safari 4.0.3 will give me the the following error message every time I click on a link to or type the address of a secure website:

Safari can't open the page "pageAddress" because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server "serverAddress".

I'm curious about what might cause this because it's stopping me from using a lot of user login pages (i.e.: the Google Accounts login page.) Is there some way that my dad could fix this (I'm not the administrator, as mentioned first.)?

OS X :: Router Being Hacked And Rerouting Websites?

Sep 6, 2010

I can't find much information on this online, but I have heard of routers being hijacked and rerouting websites, having DNS reroute problems etc. Here are a few examples of things happening. Sometimes when I go to a message board at [URL], it loads [URL:..] Today Twitter was some random blogspot blog Ebay SSL Certificate showing up as invalid PayPal SSL Certificate showing up as invalid [URL] not loading [URL] (I think....it was some shopping site) loaded [URL] Sometimes sites just don't load, when there are no issues with the site, it'll just get a white page with an error message.There have been other odd happenings. This is all pretty weird stuff that has happened over the past few months. I have kind of just brushed it off. I never enter personal info or anything so HOPEFULLY nothing important has been taken. Now - it might be your first instint to assume that my computer might be hacked/hijacked/virus but it's NOT my computer. Like 100% not my computer. We have 3 macs here, 2 iPhones and an iPad. Whenever I am having these issues it is on ALL devices. All on wireless so this is definitely coming from the router. I have tried searching for help with this through google and can't seem to find any info. I see mention of what people were saying is a DNS hacked router, but no way to repair or even anyone discussing it so I really don't know where to turn.

Maybe someone here can point me in the right direction? What's also strange is these are always temporary...for example, I noticed it tonight when I went to do a PayPal refund, and got that SSL error so I left the site about a half hour ago. Just went again to get a screen shot to include with this post and its back to normal and SSL verified. Can anyone offer any input on this? I'm tempted to just go buy a new router...unfortunate thing is, this one isnt old. I bought this last fall and have noticed the weird problems since shortly after that. It's a Linksys WRT160Nv3 Firmware Version: v3.0.02

How to I make sure that I have set up a secure internet connection on my macbook pro? Our internet has been running slower the past month or so and I want to be sure I have not left my internet unsecured for someone else to log on and use. When I check the "rainbow" at the top of my screen there are usually about 6 people listed and they all have a lock after their names. Our just has our last name with a checkmark. Does that mean it is secure?

Software :: Safari Can't Make A Secure Connection?

Apr 30, 2010

For several of the accounts on my iMac, I've set parental controls to "try and limit access to adult content" When I do this, Safari stops being able to access "https" websites such as gmail.com etc. If I set the parental controls setting to "unrestricted access" the problem goes away. I don't want the kids to have "unlimited acess" but I do want to let them access "https" sites as appropiate. I've seen several old threads on this subject, but nothing so far that I could find related to it being caused by the parental controls or how to fix it. I'm running OS X 10.6.3 on an iMac quad core. I'm also very new to the Mac world (6 month) so I'm pretty much at the beginner level.

MacBook Pro :: Why Won't Safari Establish A Secure Connection With Facebook

I've tried doing things with proxy. I've tried resetting Safari. I've tried doing things with cookies. I've tried disabling extensions. Next step is to try throwing my laptop out the window. This only started happening yesterday and there is no issues with other sites. It's not my internet connection. I can't get to Facebook by direct URL or through google or through links in my history.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Safari, Secure Connection To Sites And Parental Control?

Mar 22, 2012

I'm setting up Safari for a child, and have Parental Controls enabled and am customizing the list of sites that can be visited. I'm allowing [URL] and have multiple http and https Netflix URL's allowed. However, when I test accessing this site, Safari gives an error stating that it cannot establish a "secure connection". The same computer, with a different account, can access the same URL without the error. My assumption would be that since I specifically allowed several [URL] URL's, that this would work just fine. By granting specific access, you are bypassing Parental Controls in a controlled way.

OS X :: Bizarre Connection With Particular Websites On All Macs

Oct 12, 2009

Here is my setup: DSL Modem bridged to Airport Extreme 802.11n (Older Model - not dual band)
1 PC Running Ubuntu - Ethernet into Airport
1 Mac Pro 10.5 - Ethernet into Airport
1 Macbook 10.6 - Wireless
1 Macbook Pro 10.6 - Wireless
1 PS3 - Ethernet to Airport Express/Wireless

For some reason, all of the Macs on the network are having bizarre connection issues with particular websites, and I cannot figure out what the cause is. The main culprit is google, and any google related site including youtube. For instance, if I go to my gmail, many times it will not get past the initial "Loading" page you normally see for only a second or two. If it gets past that, the subjects of the messages will load, but where my chat and calendar normally show up it just says something to the effect of "Failed to Load" in a gray box. With youtube, the video pages will load, but instead of the video there is just a giant black box where no video ever loads. The same thing happens with other video sites like hulu, cbs, abc, etc. I can refresh the page a bunch and eventually it will load, but it takes a long time.

Oddly enough some sites, macrumors included, seem to have no issues loading at all. This is true on all of the Macs, whether I use Firefox or Safari. I would say it's my connection, however the Ubuntu machine has no problems whatsoever. I can check side by side and the Ubuntu box has no problem opening pages that the Macs are just choking to death on. It takes ages on the Macs just to load the youtube homepage, but it is up in seconds on the Ubuntu machine. I assume the PS3 is fine as well - I don't use the browser but have had no problems with the online features of the PS3. I've tried switching to OpenDNS, which actually made things worse (Google pages just stopped loading altogether). I've flushed the DNS cache, rebooted everything numerous times, disabled all plugins/extra apps, reformatted one of the machines (I needed to go back to 10.5 anyway) and just nothing seems to work.

Applications :: Accessing Http Sites On Safari And Firefox - Can't Establish Secure Connection?

May 23, 2009

I have been having this problem for a while. It happens every now and then, sometimes more often too. Sometimes at random times, when I try to access https websites in Safari such as Internet banking, signing in into eBay etc, it has an error.

It says "Safari can't open the page because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server signin.ebay.com.au". To resolve this problem I always have to turn off my Airport and then turn it back on. See screenshot - [URL]

I've also tried opening it in Firefox and it also doesn't work. In Firefox, the error is "Data Transfer Interrupted: The connection to signin.ebay.com.au has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred." See screenshot - [URL]

OS X :: Internet Connection Working Properly But No Access To Websites?

Nov 14, 2010

My Macbook Pro is connecting perfectly to my apartment's internet, but for some reason no websites seem to load. I've tried using Safari, Firefox and Chrome and none of them have worked for me. When I clicked "assist me" it said that my internet seems to be working properly, but when I tried pinging google.com the response was "4 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss". Ethernet is working perfectly however and WiFi is working on my iPhone and on my roommate's computer. WiFi is working perfectly at the library as well, so I'm not sure if it's a problem with my computer or with the network.

PowerPC :: Able To Get A Connection On The Second Floor The Router Is In The Basement?

Jun 9, 2008

My dad recently put in a new wireless router (a D-Link 802.11n model) at my house.My aluminum 12" powerbook with an airport extreme card suddenly gets much worse reception at home than ever before (previously with a 2Wire 802.11b model).The problem isn't so much speed or reliability when I'm connected, but the range. I used to be able to get a connection on the second floor (the router is in the basement, right where the old one always was) but now I can only connect at my kitchen table, one floor directly above the router. I can't even connect when I'm in the basement. What am I doing wrong? What can I do to fix this, if anything?
