Be wary of Security Update 2010-005
Authored by: hibbelig on Oct 13, '10 04:47:11PM

I observed the same.

Today, I reinstalled 10.6 from the DVD, network was working. Then I installed all available updates, network failed to work. Since there was nothing else I did in between, it must have been the updates.

The symptoms are: "ping www.leo.org" complains it cannot resolve the host name. But "host www.leo.org" resolves it just fine and returns an IP address. Then "ping" to that IP address tells me I have connectivity.

Safari tells me I'm not connected to the internet, but entering an IP address as URL works.

Now I'm going to read up on combo updates, wondering how to transfer them to the machine without name resolution.

I've now downloaded and installed http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1105 and it solved the problem.
