mDNSResponderwas enough to keep it quiet but this doesn't work as intended anymore on Snow Leopard as all DNS activity goes through
Apple's KB explains how to properly disable those broadcast advertisements:
sudo vim /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist
<string>-NoMulticastAdvertisements</string>at the end of the
- Save the file
sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist
sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist
This is a great tip but only really helps if everyone on the network does this. I'm on a huge University network and the mDNSResponder simply kills my battery because it takes about 5-10 requests / second. Thanks for the tip though!

Thanks so much for this! It works beautifully!
Does this still work under Mountain Lion?
