I bought a new Macbook Pro with Monterey 12.5 and migrated all data from an 11.4 Big Sur using Migration Assistant. When starting up the new Macbook I could not connect to internet even though I was connected to various wifi connections (which were all in good working order).
I ran wireless diagnostics and received a DNS resolution failure issue.
Things I have tried:
- Restarting laptop
- Changing DNS to Google and OpenDNS addresses
- Renewing DHCP
- Deleting a bunch of apps which I thought could cause an issue (Cisco webex, Epress VPN)
- Tried creating another user and logging in with another credentials
- Ultimately re-installed Mac OS
I also started up in safe mode. And that time the internet worked!
However, when coming back out of safe mode, the issue persists.
What are your thoughts on the actions that I should take?
