|@northernlights I swear dude, there are loads of people on the isp forums complaining about the same issue. I went to my mates house to install some updates and airport was working perfectly. I know it's bizarre but the router is the issue. I was hoping some network people would have a work around our something.|

You may be right there are so many factors involved but
Remember when researching products issues for products
Purchased in thier millions they are many known issues which
Aren't known issues just a vocal minority
Verify the HDD though dude ! In disk utility see what it says
Ok, will do that now.
Get yourself an external hard drive. If your apps/data really are/is precious you need a backup anyway. Then you can grab 10.8 too. Router problem solved, non-backup problem solved.
Disk is fine.
@Progguitarist I can't grasp how a packet from any source could crash anything. The protocol is essentially "this looks like crap but I'll have a go at interpreting it and I'll bin it if it's utter pish." I'm mad for networks and this intrigues me.
Actually, that's not true. I remember from a job I was doing a few years ago that a malformed packet broke a certain bit of hardware. I retract my retraction.

An I.T. haiku
That may or may not
Green writing yeah ? Good man
@northernlights yes. All good according to the disc utility. Seriously bizarre situation. I got as warning about an ip clash last night when it started to happen. I hadn't used the Mac since the new router was installed.
Personally is buy a new router ! One where u can take it back if u still have problems
I thought I was cool
knowing about things
related to networking
but I come across
as an idiot.
[Edit - I got haiku and limerick mixed up.
Not the Irish thing.
Japanese ones are shorter.
Another black mark.]

I may actually be of use in the morning. Seriously, what's the router Prog?

@northernlights English, motherfucker. Do you speak it?
Broke the quotes with my wrinkly fishj-0fingers:
Opening gambit from the Fuckin' Geordie Fuckin' Scrappin', like, Team was a deafening "Did you just call ma Thoonda-bowlt a kweeeeah?" which the Fulham AppGarglers replied to with "You're goin' 'ome in a fuckin' iPod app!"

ZyXel F1000 Modem
That's the router/modem model.
I think I've fixed it...I had to disable IPv6 on my mac and router settings or something. Working so far.

Bit late to the party but was going to mention that upgrading to 10.8 might be problematic if any important software you use requires Rosetta to run, assuming you might not want to fork out for newer versions if available.
