Safari can’t connect but ping works

This rather cryptical titel is one of my “note to self” post. Without the help from Google and people posting their trouble i would’nt find the solution to my OS X Lion 10.7.5 network trouble.

My problem was that i could’nt connect to internet with Safari or Google Chrome. With Networkutility i could do ping, netstat. RDP to my Windows 7 box worked. So what was the problem? I don’t know but, I followed the this thread and found the answer.

What I did was as follows:
Open: System Preferences>>Network

Marked the Wi-fi and removed it with the – sign and added it again with the + sign.

Simple but strange.
