I recently set up a Jabber account so that I could see my Yahoo! contacts within iChat. I got everything set up and it worked beautifully... for the first 5 to 10 minutes. Every 5 to 10 minutes my connection to the Jabber server drops and I get a message telling me that the connection unexpectedly disconnected.

I've narrowed the problem down to being an iChat issue, as I am able log into my Yahoo! account using Psi for as long as I want with no connection issues. I've even tried changing the server settings for the Jabber server (SSL & auto discover), but each time I end up with the same result: unexpectedly disconnected.

Anyone got a clue on this one? I'd really like to have all my contacts in one IM client and I'd really like to not have to restart iChat every 5-10 minutes.

    Okay, scratch that... after snooping around and reading some other material I discovered it had something to do with my wifi connection (????). I changed the channel of my router and everything works perfect now.
