I've been having problems with my AEBS with wireless-N (2nd generation) running the latest firmware, 7.6.4, ever since I restored it to factory settings a couple of days ago and set it up with the default 10.0.1.x addresses instead of the 192.168.1.x I used before.

 

Here is what the log says. First off, why can't the new AirPort Utility access the logs?! A feature that did NOT need to be removed. I got them using a Snow Leopard machine:

It seems to be getting a new lease from the ISP every 45-60 minutes as normal, but what are all these "public address reported as" messages showing up so frequently? And all these "connection accepted from" ones. Should I be worried about those?

 

Update: 10.0.1.2 is a Mac Mini Server. It just lost connection for a moment. I just checked the log:

    I've had the 'network drop' issue with my Airport Extreme for the last 2 months.  It reconnects when I pull the ethernet cable and plug it back in.  I've tried downgrading the AE firmware, resetting to factory, etc.  Nothing worked.  I finally threw in the towel and created a script that monitors my network connectivity and restarts my interface if it senses it has dropped:

     

    ##############

    #!/bin/ksh

    while true

    do

      yup=`ping -c1 -t2 www.google.com|grep from`

      if [[ -n $yup ]]

         then echo "Internet is connected!"

      else

            ifconfig en0 down; ifconfig en0 up

            echo "Down at `date +%m%d%Y%H%M%S`">>./dropped.out

      fi

      sleep 5

    clear

    done

    ###############

     

    I know its a workaround, but its saving me the headache of constantly pulling my cable and putting it back in!

     

    Good luck!

    -Mike Gray
