For about 10 minutes, none of my devices connected to the Internet could connect to www.google.com, its subdomains and other Google-owned sites (e.g. youtube.com). Sites with Google Analytics installed would time out on me too.
In Terminal I typed in
ping www.google.com and got this message:
Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 Request timeout for icmp_seq 2
I flushed my cache using
dscacheutil -flushcache, and I don't know if it worked or not because Google suddenly responded again but very slowly. I renewed my DHCP license through System Preferences and enabled my firewall (again, not sure if it effected it). Google worked again after 5 minutes, but I'm worried what this could have been about after reading this thread on Apple's support forum:
However, NONE of my devices worked (Android/Windows/Mac), so I'm really at loss here.
I am not connected to any university. This is a home connection on Mediacom.
