I got a new MacBook Pro for my work office and have a network issue. On the MBP 13" I use the integrated Wi-Fi and an additional a Belkin USB Ethernet.
Now, with those two network interfaces I connect to two different networks:
a) Work network (Wi-Fi) b) Test network (Ethernet)
From both networks I get an IP via DHCP incl. DNS server address and search domain / suffix:
a) DNS Server 10.10.10.10
a) Search domain
b) DNS Server 172.16.30.1
b) Search domain
Right now the Ethernet (b) is on top of the list:
If I now want to connect (ping) to a device in test network (b) it works:
But If I try to connect (ping) to a device in the company network (a) it doesn't work:
I tried to switch the order of the devices (first Wi-Fi, second Ethernet) and then the issue swaps around (now
.intern works but
.work not anymore). For me it seems that macOS is sticky to the first (main?) network interface. I also tried to set the test network (Ethernet - when on top of the adapter list) to manual IP and to leave the DNS server / search domain empty, but even then the DNS from the second device (Wi-Fi) will not be used.
Does anyone have a solution for that? Can't be that I am the first one to come over that issue
