Apple on Tuesday released the fourth beta of macOS Ventura to developers and public beta testers. Unfortunately, some users are reporting networking issues on machines with content-filtering apps like Little Snitch installed.
Users on Twitter and some forums report that after installing the beta, they are experiencing network connectivity issues. It appears users have been able to narrow it down to interference with network filtering. MacRumors reader Grant says he saw his network cycling on and off repeatedly until he uninstalled Little Snitch.
Twitter user @aaronp613 had an issue with his Mac disconnecting after updating and he was able to fix it by turning off Radio Silence.
PSA: Don’t update to macos 13.4 beta 4 – there seems to be network issues. Myself and one other person already having constant network drops every few seconds

Mac users who are having issues with network connectivity after installing macOS Ventura 13.4 beta 4 are advised to disable their network filtering apps. If you don’t wish to disable these apps, avoid installing the latest beta for now.
Remember, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on their daily driver Mac, instead only installing betas on devices set aside for testing purposes.
