'Your network settings have been changed by another app' - THE SOLUTION
Posted: Sep 28, 2008 11:30 AM
This currently reported problem, which manifests after applying Security Update 2008-06, can be fixed permanently by removing the following preferences files:
Go to Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration and delete the following (suggest make copies to the desktop first if in doubt):
All these files will regenerate as necessary when the associated system features are accessed. If you're using Airport or Internet Sharing you'll have to reestablish the appropriate settings, because these will have been lost when the preferences files are removed. Small price to pay, however for a permanent, and very simple solution to this irritating problem.MacBook Pro 2.4 Ghz 15.4 / 2 Gb Ram, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

I had this problem. I tried your fix and it changed nothing, but while looking around in my network preferences, I found out that after updating to 10.4.11 my default internet connection had been changed from cable modem to telephone modem. All is OK since I reselected my cable modem for connecting to the internet. Now I stay connected after awaking from sleep mode and restarting.
This corrected both my G4 flat screen iMac, and my G4 ibook.G4 Flat screen iMAc & G4 iBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
