I have a MacBook Pro (mid-2011 model) running 10.8.2.  I have Suddenlink internet that uses a cable modem that is plugged into one of the new Airport Express Base Stations.  I allowed the wizard of Airport Express to automatically setup the wifi network.  I have a MacBook (2008 model), two iPhone 5s, an Apple TV, and 3 iPads also connecting to the network.  Those all work just fine.  However, on the MacBook Pro, it seems to occasionally have a hiccup that loses connection to either the internet, wifi network, or both.  I first discovered this when switching between libraries on the Apple TV.  It would show in the list of libraries, but when switching to it, it would say it was not available.  If I tried to surf the web at this time, it would tell me it was not connected to the internet, even though the Wifi signal strength showed as excellent and connected.  I have tried resetting the modem, restarting computer, restoring Apple TV, and restoring Airport Express, each multiple times.  After a reboot or reset, it will work well for a few hours, and then have to do it all over again, or wait for the internet connection to reset itself.  Any suggestions?
