    After updating to 10.4.6, Safari tells me that I'm not connected to the internet, even though I have full airport signal and I know I'm online. After a while of fiddling with the diagnostics (not changing anything just going through it) I'm able to get on. This happens after a restart and if it has been asleep for a while.

    Just so you know, I use WPA-PSK [TKIP] security settings and I have a Netgear WPN824 router. Before the update, I was online as soon as my MacBook was up.

    similar problem

    After installing 10.4.6, I'm having a quite annoying problem. After the computer wakes from sleep, airport is unable to find a wireless network. I tried using different base stations with no luck. When I restart the computer, the problem is solved, up until the computer goes to sleep again. I am on a Ti Powerbook with an Apple airport card that I installed, and its always worked fine. Please help, I am really unsure about how to fix it. Thanks

    Ok, I called AppleCare today and got the problem fixed. Apparently some of my preference files were corrupted so the product specialist had me delete the files and reconfigure. I wish I could go more into detail about how it was fixed, but everyone's WiFi setup is different, so I recommend calling AppleCare.

    I'll explain to the best of my knowledge of what I did.
    Go to Macintosh HD > Library > Preferences > System Configuration. The specialist had me drag all the files in the folder to the trash and then restart. Then setup the wireless network like you did originally. If this doesn't work, either reply to this thread, or call tech support.
