After a switch to a new router, I frequently experience that all sites fail to resolve under Mavericks 10.9.4 on MBA mid-2011, both with Safari, Chrome and pinging google.com. It lasts for variable time, from few seconds to several minutes. Same for wifi and Ethernet.
However, during such outages:
- repeated pings to 126.96.36.199 works fine from OS X Terminal
- sites open fine in Windows under Parallels if network is set as "Bridged", doesn't work when network is set to "Shared"
- another Mac (MBP 2010) with OS X Mountain Lion
resolves and opens sites just without a problem (checked by a script repeatedly pinging google.com)has the same problem as MBA
- iPhone connected to the same wifi resolves and opens sites just fine
Switching back to my original router seems to solve the problem.
How to debug and resolve the problem?
