Problem accessing www.apple.com

Hi all,


I am having problems accessing www.apple.com and other related addresses.

I am inside a WLAN, but the problem has already manifested itself in other networks. My router is using OpenDNS.

My MBP is the only computer on the network having this problem.


From the NetworkUtility I ran some diagnostic tools, and got the following


traceroute www.apple.com

Traceroute has started ...

traceroute to   (, 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
1  localhost (  0.329 ms  0.041 ms  0.030 ms



ping www.apple.com

Ping has started ...

PING   ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.043 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.052 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.062 ms

---   ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.043/0.052/0.062/0.008 ms


But the address lookup doesn't show any problem

The results with the direct IP address ( were, however, positive. :)

I think that, somehow, the domain apple.com is associated with my local computer.


Any idea to what might be causing this, and how to fix it?
