The airport extreme at my brothers house is dropping Wi-Fi every 30 minutes.  This is a first generation Apple extreme setup in 2007. The light stays green but the Internet is gone. That is, the Wi-Fi from the Apple extreme is gone. I unplug the electricity plug from the back of the extreme, wait a few seconds, plug it back in to the plug on the extreme and it works for another 30 minutes.


What is going on?  This is not a Comcast problem it seems.





MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion, Also a Mac SE running 6.0.4 - not upgrading that!
