Others it seemed to have lost my LAN (and ultimately, UMA) connection even though it showed as connected.
Anyone else having this?
Have done battery pull each day over past 3 days.
This has been an issue since the first betas of OS6. However, it has happened to me even when never going on to UMA. The only solution was to turn off the antenna and turn it back on. As soon as I did they went right through.
However, on a similar note, I have noticed in the last few builds issues with Google Talk (gchat) just dropping its connection with no way of knowing it is really offline. I miss IMs, IMs I send that APPEAR to go through never did, and it can stay disconnected (but saying it is) for hours like this with no way of knowing. It's gotten to where I have to go in to Google Talk every hour or so and sign out and back in just to make sure I am still really connected. I use Google Talk in place of SMS with a LOT of people so it's extremely annoying to not be getting messages, or sending messages that I later find out never actually did.
Anyone else noticed this? I don't know if it's the latest build of Google Talk even though I never saw this prior to OS6, OS6 not playing well, or maybe even a dropout when I go from UMA to regular tower signal. I HAVE noticed it happen when I have been in and out of UMA coverage, but have actually had it happen even when I don't, stay inside in UMA for a while, and also when I may have just been in and out of spotty coverage areas. Basically it appears to happen anywhere, but is more pronounced after leaving UMA.
