Wireless networking issues

Recommended Posts

With my macbook, I purchased a Belkin wireless G router. It works fine and I can get the signal clear across my house. However when I use a public access point, which also works fine, and then go back home to my encrypted network, the computer doesn't connect properly. the airport icon gets a good signal and appears to be working okay, but I can't access any websites or check email. After turning on and off the airport and restarting a few times, the computer connects and i can get online. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this a known issue? Or am I doing something wrong?

Sounds to me like the public AP puts its self as a DNS and it stays that way when you come back home. Without a proper DNS ip your machine wont know where to look for the website.
