One possible fix for internet connections that drop out
Authored by: frudov on Jul 06, '08 12:40:26PM

Here's how things are for me:

1. Since leopard I used to only have problems initially getting on the wireless network from sleep, but now it's started dropping out randomly in the middle of usage after 10.5.3-10.5.4 on my MBP.

2. In the Network Diagnostics tool, more often than not it's stuck at the ISP green light; the Internet and Server lights are both red. When I get to selecting the airport network I want to join, often (but not always) it asks me to put in a password for the network, even though I don't have it secured (used to, that didn't help, either!). Eventually by turning Airport on and off, it starts working again.

3. I don't see why it's the router. I've been having endless problems since Leopard with a linksys router that had been working perfectly before, and works fine now for some computers (but not mine).

3. I'd been using the Open DNS servers before Leopard, that sure doesn't seem to be helping.

4. I'm not sure what MTU is--where is that in the network prefs, or is it in the router?
