10.4.3: internet apps don't work after wake from sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2005/11/03 - Russ Dumke

I finally got 10.4.3 installed (had a major problem doing it with Software Update--went back and did the combo installer) but noticed an odd thing. My internet apps won't load internet content after I wake the machine from sleep (new iBook G4). Activity Monitor shows me connected to the net, though. I found that turning off the DSL modem and then turning it back on fixes this, but I've had the problem twice now. Does anyone have any idea what's causing this?

Thanks,
Russ

I've had a similar problem since installing Tiger on an iBook G3 connected to the Internet through Airport. Upon wakeup, the computer makes no attempt to reconnect to the Airport network - I have to do it explicitly.

Have you checked if the setting for the pre-selected Airport network is still effective. I lost it in a previous update and got similar symptoms - specifically with user switching.

Anders,

Thanks. I seem to have it working again. I checked the network settings as you suggested, and they seemed to be okay. I then selected "By default join: Automatic", and it connected automatically to my network upon awakening. I then switched back to "preferred networks" and now it seems to be working.

Regards,

Don

I'm not sure why airport would affect anything. (I was not wireless when I encountered the problem.) However, I did play around with Keychain Access (running Keychain first Aid, eliminating duplicate entries, etc.), and this seemed to clear up the problem. I do seem to get nagged more often by dialogs wanting my pwd to log into my email account, though. I'm not sure why.

I have found that turning the DSL modem off then on fixes this. Airport is off, and the keychain voodoo hasn't fixed things. I have emailed tech support at SBC Yahoo! to get their fix. Today the problem occurred in the middle of an active session. Network Diagnostics said my network configuration changed. I'm not sure if this is a problem on my end or my ISP's.

I get that a lot on Comcast ... I believe it's because their authentication server is down a lot.

Dunno ... maybe a DHCP lease renewal?

Can I fix this on my end, or is it my ISP's problem?

I tried renewing the lease with Tiger Cache Cleaner, and this didn't help. I just did an archive and install (keeping my network settings). Hopefully this will cure things.
