    I have been without proper networking for months now.


    No amount of file repairs or "tricks" fix this issue.


    10.5.7 is supposedly going to resolve these issues. So, where is it ?


    If anyone doubts my network issues, please view Apple discussion forums. It does exist, yet no one can nail it down.


    Prior to 10.5.6, networking with other Macs and PCs was a breeze.

    I don't believe they have seeded a 10.5.7 candidate in a while. So, it must be coming any day now, right :(

    The OP meant Leopard update (10.5.7)

    I think you are referring to Snow Leopard (10.6)

    You are mixing up 10.5.7 with 10.6. 10.5.7 should be released any week now.

    They've actually been seeding new 10.5.7 builds every week to developers for a little while now. Like gibbz said, April 11 (3 days ago) was the latest build.

    Oops.


    I guess that thread slipped by me. Thank you for pointing it out !


    I read through it and no one mentions network issues.


    Am I to assume that this is a very small bug or that few people use networks ?


    It is the most annoying bug I have experienced with any Apple OS. Only been around since OS9 but still :rolleyes:


    Also, just for mentioning, fresh installs, from 10.5 retail, yield perfect networking. 10.5.6 put an end to that. I'm running '06 and '08 Mac Pros. Both worked great before the 10.5.6 update. I must be in the extreme minority ?

    While it certainly may be a bug in 10.5.6, have you tried different networks to see if it is related to your other equipment in some way?

    I sympathize; 10.5.5 screwed up video playback for G5s with ATI graphics cards. Only workaround was to run 10.5.4 or go back to the slower Geforce 6600.

    Small bug, likely. I'm on at least three different networks a week, wired & wireless, and have not had the least of issues seeing or connecting with 10.5.6. Could be more hardware related than OS, too.

    All systems normal...

    I will give the router software another check though. Shouldn't be an issue with it as others have described the same issues with 10.5.6. Not to mention the fact that I performed direct connects with no luck.


    Also, it appears that Jobs made sure to keep me in the loop : http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=686641

    OS X updates are rarely on a Tuesday. Monday and Friday are the 2 most common days in recent past.

    We don't know and even if we did we could not tell you anyway. Just be patient.
