Known issues with Lion
Lion can sometimes crash when accessing the wireless networks. Symptoms can be a dark "curtain" showing on the monitor or a request to shutdown.
This issue is currently being investigated. In the meantime, disabling IPv6 on the WiFi card has been known to solve the issue for some users (but regrettably not for all).
To do disable IPv6, open a terminal. The terminal is found in the Applications and Utilities menu.
The you have to issue a series of commands to disable IPv6:
- First, find your wifi card. To to that type in the command:
$ networksetup -listallnetworkservices
- If the card is e.g. called 'Wi-Fi', you can disable IPv6 with the command:
$ sudo networksetup -setv6off "Wi-Fi"
Restart your computer. IPv6 has now been disabled on your Mac.
If this does not solve the issue, unfortunately we currently have no other known workarounds; but you are always welcome to send an e-mail to .
