Hello JaceFink. It is a known problem especially for users with Macs. Check out this jira: https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-25627

A solution for your problem described at the following url and it seems that works:

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 it doesn't work for you, you can download a previous version of Viewer 2 here , setting your your software updates NO to be installed automatically. (Preferences --> Setup --> Hardware)

Good luck.

Your connection can appear fine for everything on the internet but still not be stable enough for SL. SL is VERY sensitive.

If you have a Mac it could be that you just have the bug in the latest viewer, see http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Account/login-fail/qaq-p/870821#M3577

For other DNS errors unrelated to that, see: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Troubleshooting_DNS_login_issues
