Okay, well I'm on my brand spanking new MacBook Pro 13' and I love it. But I have ran into a problem. I'll be browsing the web, downloading some torrents, chatting on skype, listening to music on iTunes and stuff perfectly fine for a few hours and then all of the sudden the internet connection just stops and I can't do anything internet related until I reboot my Mac.
Any ideas? I think it's my router but I'm not sure :/
Just ask for more info if you need it.
(Didn't know what info to supply)
Well, so far I have disabled/re-enabled Wireless card and tried renewing the DHCP lease, to no avail. The connection is wireless and I don't know If anyone else has experienced it because they are never on that long. (I hardly ever reboot usually.)
Okay, well here's some more info I can give y'all.
When it freezes, everything just hangs endlessly. Firefox, Transmission, and the ping command. The ping command never gets a reply and never terminates. Just hangs with a blinking cursor. I reset my router to all defaults and it still happens. I then have to reboot because everything I try (turning the connection off/on, going by Ethernet, renewing DHCP lease) doesn't help a wee-bit. The ONLY thing that works is a reboot, which fixed everything. My DHCP lease is one day; this happens after approx. 4 hours. Could it be I have my torrent client set to accept 999 incoming connections at any one time? That never materializes though, I usually get a max of approx. 200. I'm not sure what else to say except now I am led to believe this may be my Mac instead of my router and the fact that this is ticking me off really bad.
