Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2008 9:02 PM (in response to laua)Bump. Someone please help us. I'm also at a loss. My 802.11n Time Capsule Network is working fine with my ATVs, and kids' MacBooks. My brand new MacBook Pro 2.6 arrived today and (aaarrrrggh!!!) it will NOT even see my 802.11n Time Capsule Network. I am using the slower, bridged Airport I set up for "g" iphones. Network Utility says Airport is n enabled. HELLLLLP.iMac intel, Mac OS X (10.5), Misc Macbooks, iphones, AppleTvs etc

Currently Being ModeratedJun 23, 2008 1:12 AM (in response to laua)Hello,
I think the problem is the AIRPORT INSTABILITY of the MBP card. A lot of people here in France encounter wifi connection instability with this MB; Apple is NOT listening (we are waiting since 3 months !!!)MBP + Ibook + Ppc + Imac, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 24, 2008 8:29 PM (in response to shutyourpiehole was taken)Same problem here with older MBP and TC. 2.4GHz network works fine, but 5GHz is even not seen. MBP works fine with Airport Extreme and 5GHz network is seen from 802.11n-enabled Lenovo Notebook, but MBP+TC just doesn't work. Asked this question more than 2 weeks ago and have seen no answer still.
BTW, it is possible to chnage channel for 5GHz - you should press option button while clicking on channels list and it will rollout with more choices. However this doesn't work for me unfortunately.MacBook Pro 2.2GHz 15", Mac OS X (10.5.3), Time Capsule 500Gb
Currently Being ModeratedAug 4, 2008 10:46 PM (in response to laua)Same issue I have 2 iMacs, a Xp and a Vista machine all connected to my Timecapsule fine. My MBP can connect but gets 50%-70% dropped pings to the Timecapsule and throughput goes kaput. Any ideas anyone?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2), Timecapsule 500g

We're having the same problem. MBP is consistently loosing 20% of packets when connecting wirelessly to the TC.
Vista laptop having no problems at all.
Any ideas of possible solutions? I'm thinking of using an airport express to extend the network (even though I'm getting full wifi strength) to see if that helps. Do you think this could helpMBP, Mac OS X (10.5.4), TC
Currently Being ModeratedJan 26, 2009 9:20 PM (in response to laua)Hello;
I have this same issue. I am using a MacBook, and other computers on WiFi with a time capsule and WDS for another extreme. Over time, a few days, the Time Capsule starts to drop packets on pings, web pages load very slow, but streaming, say music is fine.....
I opened a ticket with Apple support, and they moaned about WDS, and such and asked me to reset cold the Time Capsule, which I did ad things worked; for about 3 days. Then, dropped packets etc etc. What I learned is to reboot, not reset the TC every time I see slow responses. There for sureis something up with this FW and the WDS. Really frustrating....MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
