I tried to update to 10.6.4 from 10.6.3 on my DELL Vostro 3700 (i5) today ( downloaded combo update ).

update & restart works well but I lost network connection partially: I still can access the internet but I can´t access my local network / LAN , p.e. my desktop mac on .





Connection Failed / There was an error connecting to the server "". Check the server name or IP address, and then try again



I still get vnc connection (screen sharing) to and from my desktop machine and I still can LAN access the laptop from my desktop machine. The VNC back-channel / response (vostro -> desktop machine) is very slow.

Its also possible to access an apache running on my machine from the laptop (localhost via browser (Safari :


Preference Pane / Network still shows good ( IP (Vostro) =, Subnet = , Router = , all there ).


I also tried to boot -x / save mode but makes no difference


any Idea out there? many thanks! :D
