There is a very long discussion on this, going back over two years. A lot has changed since this all started, but I recommend you start with this summary and go forward from there, if necessary: 

If none of that solves it for her, go to System Preferences->Network->Advanced button->Proxies tab. Normally there should not be anything enabled there, but you didn't say whether or not she is also using a VPN of some sort. If she is, make sure that's the only thing shown there and the settings are correct. If she is not, then disable everything and delete anything shown in the Bypass box at the bottom. Click the OK button and then the Apply button.

You might have to restart her computer after you have done all of the above.
