since I update to 10.7.5 it happens always, loosing wireless connection, I'm turning off and turn on wifi to start connecting again,

found on the forum this:


If the above solution does not work try changing your DNS settings. MacWorld did an article about DNS Troubleshooting that will explain, while it doesn't work for everyone I found it worked for me. Here are the instructions and settings I used that have been working reliably for 3.5 years:


1. System preferences

2. Network

3. Click Advanced

4. Click DNS tab

5. Click + sign

6. Add

7. Click + sign

8. Add

9. Click OK.

10. Exit System Preferences

11. Try out your iMac and report what happened.





it helped me only for 1 day, and disconnecting happens again.. please help.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
