One possible fix for internet connections that drop out
Authored by: Hunted Charlie on Jul 02, '08 01:19:34PM
If you're going to be changing location (or even if you're not) try using the OpenDNS servers. You can go here to find their tutorials on enabling it at any level on your network. You'll have to create an account to use most of their extra features, but the basic bit is as easy as adding their DNS servers to your Mac's list:

208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

That's it. Their servers are faster, more regularly updated, and can perform (at your choice) extra functions like blocking of badware/phishing domains, content control, domain name correction, or DNS shortcuts.

This also makes it a lot easier when you're changing locations because you can leave your DNS servers the same and you never have to worry about changes.
