Hi All,

For the last 2 days my wirless connection is not persistent. it connects for minutes and then it gets disconnected automatically.(says Authentication server is not responding but it is still connected for few minutes). Afer some 2-3 mins connection gets disconnected. If i turn off n on the wireless adapter it gets connected again. below are my system logs, after reading some thread in some forum i understand some Airport issue with the mac pro. Im ready to try out your thoughts,
