I have read many, many threads on this topic, but have yet not found a solution.


     iMac 10.7.3, ADSL Broadband, wireless modem/router

Symptoms are:

     Browsing fine on both laptop PC and iMac, suddenly iMac says it has cannot find a page.

     Network diagnostics has red dots in last two items (Internet failed and Server failed).

     Laptop PC (also wireless) keeps working fine - so the problem is probably not the modem/router.


I can immediately fix the problem by going to Menu bar, clicking WiFi symbol, clicking "Turn  Wi-fi Off" and then clicking "Turn Wi-fi On". All green lights and all is OK, until next time.


Any more suggestions?



iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
