  • Now click on ?Apply? for the DNS changes to take effect, close out of System Preferences as usual.
  • The topmost DNS servers will be accessed first, so you?ll want to put the best performing servers near the top of the list for best results. In the screenshot examples above, Google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) are placed above the OpenDNS servers, both of which are faster than ISP provided DNS servers.

Internet or Wi-Fi problem

Open System Preferences… > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced… > TCP/IP and note the IP address of your Wi-Fi router.

Let?s say it is 192.168.1.1.

When you are in your bad network situation, open a Terminal and enter the following command:

ping -c 100 -s 1992 -q 192.168.1.1

to check your Wi-Fi quality of connection and let run this command for nearly 2 minutes. Make a copy of the result and include it in your question.

If is tells 0% packet lost, then your problem is a general Internet problem. If it tells your that you have some packets lost, then your problem is on the Wi-Fi side.

I suspect that this might be your case.

Analyse a Wi-Fi problem

Download the iStumbler software:

iStumbler

This version is free:

iStumbler 99

This is an excellent quality software and running without problem on from Snow Leopard to Yosemite (I didn’t yet tested it on El Capitan or Sierra).

When you are in your bad network situation, let iStumbler run for 10 minutes, order the output along the Level column in decreasing order. Make a screen capture and include it in your question.

IP or DNS problem

Open a Terminal and enter the following command:

dig www.apple.com

This command will ask your DNS server how it does resolve the www.apple.com in an IP address.

I spent the whole day looking for the right solution for my case. Maybe your problem will need a different solution, these are useful links for you.
