comment What does it mean when I get a server failure when connecting to a router with DNS protocol
Very strange. That's also a somewhat unfortunate name as it's next to impossible to get any useful information from Google with it. I tried adding a mapping in my hosts file to 'System' to myself (127.0.0.1) and to nothing (0.0.0.0) - the Server Failures stopped showing up in Wireshark but the lag didn't go away. I've not noticed this DNS lookup for anything else but Super Duper (obviously can't be 100% sure) - however could this server failure be a red herring?

OK, here's what's in there: System: type A, class IN Name: System Type: A (Host address) Class: IN (0x0001)

Sorry it's not clear which part of the packet detail pane I get that info from. Potentially, the second section which simply lists the src as my router (D-Link...) and the dst as my mac network adapter (Apple_ee...). The last section (Domain Name system) goes into more detail with regards to the response (the flag 'Recursion desired' is set) - but nothing explicit as to what the host name is. Am I looking at the wrong place?

No idea. According to Super Duper support it's not meant to be going out onto the network since there aren't any network drives mounted. I don't have any servers in my home network and we don't do any cross communication between different machines that connect to the wireless router.

Do you have any reference as to this being a known issue with the Macbook Air? i.e. anything from Apple? Does this work with other Macs? Or other versions of Mac OSX?

I certainly will! As soon as the system allows me (I have wait another day at the time of writing as it's an answer from myself).

No it did not. It just booted up normally i.e. as if I had not been holding down the Shift key. Is your experience different @Buscar웃?
