I am running Mac OS X 10.6.6 on a dual boot configuration with Windows 7.

Problem: I am not able to resolve domain names in Mac OS X.

I have tried:

  • Clearing DNS cache and ARP entries
  • Rebooting my router
  • Disabled IPv6
  • Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and a tethered iPhone.
  • Disabling Firewall
  • Matching network settings to Windows 7 partition.

Question: What other steps can I take to diagnose and fix this issue?

Sorry guys. I tried to provide as much info as i could but it just ended up a jumbled mess. My question is pretty straightforward. – hdz Jun 9 '11 at 6:29
