Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2008 7:23 PM (in response to Emily Jackson)Hi Emily, try dragging these files to the Desktop & reboot...
If that doesn't work, try this one...
Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2008 7:24 PM (in response to Emily Jackson)Same here. I just tried after reading your post. My PowerBook can't remember my wireless network password since installing the latest security update. When I tried to check the wireless password in Keychain Access, it won't recognize my system password to allow me to access the information.PowerBook G4 (Double-Layer SD) 15-inch, iMac (1GHz 17-inch), Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2008 10:36 PM (in response to Emily Jackson)I tried dragging both files, one at a time, with reboot after each with no success. What an odd anomaly! I was able to join the network however the Network Pane in System Prefs is freaking out.......any other suggestions appreciated.Dual 2.5 G5, 4 megs ram, Mac OS X (10.4.3), DVDSP 3.0.2, FCX 2.0.4, Media100XR, Compressor 1.2.1, MacBook Pro 10.4.10
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 5:20 AM (in response to Emily Jackson)Same here. Installed latest security update this morning. Since then, my internet connection has droppped, and I get the same error message when I try to enter my network settings. The error message appears in an endless loop, and prevents me changing or accessing any settings.
Can't connect to the internet unless I go to my router settings, and re-apply them. This works for a few minutes, then I lose the connection again.
I haven't tried the fixes suggested above, as they didn't seem to work for those that have.
Any new suggestions anyone?

Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 5:35 AM (in response to boris39)And again, same here; I hope Apple notice this problem and can provide a fix. Just applies to computers which have applied the latest security fix on 10.4.11, I think.
Apple - are you out there??Quicksilver, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 6:34 AM (in response to erewash)I've got the same problem (endless "network settings changed..." dialog in Network pref pane). I was trying to get my laptop connected to the wifi. As with others, this occurred after installing security update then restarting last night.
In the end I managed to get the connection using the Internet Connect app so seem to be able to use everything ok as long as I stay away from the Network preference pane.Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 8:14 AM (in response to galexa)Same problem here. Everything works fine as long as I don't try to use the "Network" option in System Preferences. I can still get online using either dial-up or airport.PowerPC G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 10:12 AM (in response to erewash)Like erewash, I wonder if the Apple staff monitors discussions like this one. It looks like Apple initialized a global «network prefpane» issue in 10.4.11 by releasing this so-called security update. Dear Apple, we do need a fix. Now.PB G4 17", Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 1:06 PM (in response to Emily Jackson)Count me in.... I installed the update this morning after my usual routine of permission fixes and drive checks followed by restarts... I'm getting the same error messages... on my G4 and now on my wife's Macbook.
So, it's not just PPC's that are affected
Apple.... where are you?G4 Dual 500 Gigabit E
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 2:31 PM (in response to Greenmanyyz)add me to the list. same problem.
my network settings changed to NOT connecting automatically to my airport base station. can't access the network panel because... ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok...iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1.25gb ram
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 2:46 PM (in response to Stride)yep, here, too. no access now to Network prefs....uh oh...MBP
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 7:18 PM (in response to bobet)Here, too - this "security update" broke Network Pref Pane as described above, both on the PowerBook 12" and on a G4 FW800 tower - both 10.4.11 and trouble-free until now.
In addition, on the PowerBook 12" it made time etc. disappear from the menu bar at upper right.
A second partition (10.4.11) on the PowerBook would not even respond to Shutdown or restart commands, and many apps would just not run, including System Preferences.iMac 2.8GHz 2008; Tiger on G4/1.25DP FW800; Mini-1.66GHz; PB-G4 12; Pismo G3, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 9:24 PM (in response to Al Cellier)Add me to the list. Constantly being notified of network settings being changed by an outside app. Applied the update to my Power Mac first, noticed the problem and thought is was verizon acting screwy. Then applied the update to my power book and guess what. Same thing! This is unusual for these guys in my experience with them. Plug and Play that what I like about these guys.Power Mac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2008 10:04 PM (in response to Emily Jackson)MacBookPro2,2 Intel Core 2 Duo here on 10.4.11 and happening as well. Locking the prefs helps a little, but this needs to be fixed asap.Mac OS X (10.4.11)
