Booted back to Airport X<br><br>In another thread you suggested I use 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.<br><br>Do I change prefs back to eithernet to enter those numbers instead of the 220.127.116.11 and .80?<br><br><br><br>Another pref panel Airport X shot. Gee whiz, I hate to send this post. It is taking longer than the last slow period I had.<br><br><br><br>I haven't even gone to Airport utility application to do anything. Do I need to?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
OK.. my situation is looking the same.. in a way. I'm having the same issues on my MBP. Using ABX I have slow surfing on the MBP and fast d'loads. On my MP it's fine. <br>My IT guy has remarked twice about my funky DNS numbers when I have the laptop at work. Still not clear on what the issue is. <br>Also, I have had several Airport Utility dialogue boxes when I get home saying that there had been a DNS problem but that it was now resolved. <br>I don't have a clear understanding of how all this works so I can't be more specific or troubleshoot it very well.<br><br><br><br><br>[image][/image]
Well, I'll throw in what I had to do to get my MacBook Pro to work with my router. Brand new out of the box my brand new MacBook Pro saw my network with full bars but wouldn't move/surf. It really threw me. I ended up calling Buffalo (the makers of the router). They told me to take the router off of B/G/N setting and just run it in one single mode like G. I chose G because I have some older Macs that wouldn't work with N. This worked for me. I can't imaging this would fix your problem as you were working great previously but, it's worth a try. <br><br>Too many lives they've spent across the ocean. Too much money been spent upon the moon. Well, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night. They better make some changes and do it soon. -Things Goin' On/Lynyrd Skynyrd

There you go~ Funky DNS<br><br>Spent an hour with the Applecare people. 45 minutes of it doing all the stuff on his list and then he put me on hold while he consulted their Airport Guru.<br><br>Wal-lah! Solution at hand and now I am back to normal.<br><br>Funny thing is, I know exactly when my problems started. Go to this thread and read up on that nasty thing that invaded my url window so that I couldn't type one word in there like CNN and go to CNN.com. I had to type www.cnn.com from that point on.<br><br>I kept getting messages that wanted to send me to antivirusdoc.com site to rid myself of a virus/trojan hors [that THEY] put on my Mac in the first place !!!!!!!!!!!!! <br><br>Apple support rep told me it mucks around with the DNS server and some other things, but that I could do an archive and install of the iMac system. I did just that and am now happily back to normal. No kidding! <br><br>He said there is an application [search Google] that would remove offending stuff, but that archive and install was a more certain way to be sure it is gone.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Kate<br><br><br><br><br><br>
OK... now it makes sense. I also ran across a couple of sites that gave that malware/whatever and it seemed like that was when it started.<br>But, there has to be a better way to fix than the lengthy reinstall/archive method. What happens if you hit one of those again... tomorrow?<br><br>[image][/image]
At least for me.<br>Kate put the cherry on top for me when she posted what the Aple tech said. I Googled "dns changer removal tool" and found this site/app.... http://www.dnschanger.com/<br><br>From the site...<br>The DNSChanger Trojan Horse, also known as OSX.RSPlug.A and OSX/Puper, has been found on numerous pornographic websites disguising itself as a video codec. Once downloaded and installed, DNSChanger changes the DNS settings on the computer, redirecting websites entered by the user to malicious sites. If personal information is entered on these malicious websites, it can lead to identity theft.<br>At work today my IT guy and I were noticing that the DNS would appear to be correct for moment ... then change right before our eyes.. to some weird DNS numbers. Apparently this Trojan is monitoring and changing the DNS on a moment to moment basis and redirecting your browsing through their site... hence the slowdown in browsing but not in downloading.<br><br>i treid the app and here are some screenies.<br><br>My weird DNS numbers...<br><br><br>The app has detected the DNS changer..<br><br><br><br>Cleared the offender out...<br><br><br>Normal DNS numbers again.. and my speed is normal again.<br><br><br>Well Kate, Droog and meself... I guess we know who the pornos are in here..lol.<br><br><br><br><br><br>[image][/image]
Well Blabbermouth! Tell the whole world. Go ahead! Destroy my saintly reputation . . .<br><br>Glad you are fixed up good and proper again. What a relief it is. . . <br><br><br><br>Oh yeah, you didn't archive and install! But, you should have seen the dust, cookie crumbs, dead mice, rat droppings, and dirt I got outta my Mac. I'm clean as a whistle! <br><br><br><br><br>
How I love a happy ending. Thanks for the report, I'm going to add that to my flash drive of utilities I carry. Very interesting. I remember seeing that but forgot. Looks like real world stuff.<br><br>Anyway, what kind of sites do you two hang out at that you both got that? <br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
