OS: Mac OS X 10.5.8

So for the past couple of months, I've been using my android phone to tether internet to my laptop, over the past week, a few sites have failed to load repeatedly.

Whenever I try to go to netflix.com I tries to load for awhile, but the fails with this message:
The server at www.netflix.com is taking too long to respond.
The same things happens when I try to go to live.com to check my email, and certain pages of other sites such as minecraft.net.

I'm running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 and using Firefox as my default browser. I don't know if this has anything to do with the tethering from my phone, but I am able to access all of the above sites on my phone without any problems.

Please help! Thanks in advance.

I would check the DNS server, try adding google public DNS on the Mac.

Hope that helps.

So I did some digging and found out that I was only restricted from secure sites, due to only having the free trial version of PDANet, I have purchased and installed the full version and everything is working fine now!

Unable to access any antivirus websites or Microsoft.com
Our family is well-equipped on the PC/laptop front; generally everyone has their own laptop plus a desktop that is occasionally used. I go to do some streaming through Livestream Procaster, and can't access the site. Hmm, that's odd. I can access Livestream.com through other computers, but...
