Problem belkin router keeps updating dns
I know my wireless connection issues with Snow Leopard are a fluke here, I imagine it’s something unique to my network and router that only a few other users will encounter.Anyway, if you’re having any wireless connection problems in Snow Leopard 10.6 too, try these things out and see if it works for you as well.* Turn Airport on & off (via menu or Network preferences) * Delete and then recreate/reestablish wireless network connection * Create a new Network Location * Make sure your router firmware and Airport card firmware is up to date * Zap the PRAM on your Mac (hold Command+Option+P+R on restart) * Flush the DNS cache using the Terminal command: dscacheutil -flushcache * Delete the com.apple.internetconfigpriv.plist and com.apple.internetconfig.plist files from ~/Library/Preferences * Trash your home directories System Configuration folder and reboot – Remove all files within ~/Library/Preferences/System Configuration/ and reboot your machine.I don’t know why but when I upgraded to Snow Leopard my wireless internet got all wonky, connections were dropping left and right and I couldn’t maintain any worthwhile airport connection for longer than a few minutes.DHCP was behaving particularly strange and the automatic settings pulled from my router were dropping every few seconds.I’m reposting this here not only as some sort of catharsis but also in the event that it helps someone else troubleshoot their wireless problems in 10.6.Here’s what I did to fix my Airport wireless connection from dropping in Snow Leopard.
* Disabled “Wireless G only” Mode – what seems to have finally sealed the deal was disabling ‘Wireless G Only’ mode that I had set on my router, yea things could theoretically be a little slower but I haven’t noticed, and I’ll wait an extra millisecond or two for a webpage to load if it means I can use my Mac Book wirelessly at home as intended.
Interestingly enough, I tried doing each of these things entirely on it’s own and it did not resolve the problem, it was the combination of everything that seems to have ‘fixed’ my airport connection problems.
