Disconnected from server .. still 4/30/13
Edit: ...How did I get linked to this thread from the General forum?
I'm going to tell you how to change dns server in mac os x.
From apple menu choose "system preferences"
Click advanced (if it is grayed out, click lock icon first and type in an admin password)
add following two DNS servers
then ok it.
apply all changes and try again. this switches DNS to openDNS
you can alternatively try something else like google dns in place of opendns (purely preference thing), those ips are
18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124
Thank you for the above mac dns servers I changed mine to the first one you listed and was able to log in right away. So my question know being computer illiterate is do I just leave that number in there or do i need to change it back Im not sure what or how the whole DNS thing works.
Thanks bunches again

This problem is following the same pattern, almost exactly, as a very similar problem that me & many others were experiencing 2 weeks ago after the 16 April Tuesday-night maintenance. At that time I was receiving the error #105 message and was unable to log in. Finally, after many hours of failing to fix that problem, the issue was solved (for me) by the server re-start of 17 April (Wednesday).
Clearly this is another problem caused by the WoW people with whatever they are tinkering with in the maintenance periods, or by some kind of difficulties in how the WoW client connects to the internet.
It is really really frustrating when WE, the players, are expected to jump through all these make-shift hoops in order to try and solve a problem we did nothing to create.
So much time wasted trying to carefully find, then read the associated threads on this issue, and then finally try to what is suggested.
As of now, Thursday morning 2 May in Japan, no success. Just this morning over the last hour I have tried several new suggestions (resetting DNS, again, flushing the cache, etc.)
Nothing is working, unfortunately. :-(
