This a recognized problem with the current SL viewer and Macs.  See https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-25627

Here's a solution that seems to work.  It's fairly complicated, but the directions are pretty clear. 

Here's the URL: http://neilrobinson.wordpress.com/2008/05/19/a-fix-for-dns-errors/

You need to add the following additional DNS servers to your DNS settings in Network settings under System Preferences:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

If that doesn`t work for  you, you can go back to the previous version of the viewer here http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Supported_Viewers make sure you also switch off automatic updates in your preferences or it will just update you again.
