Currently Being ModeratedJun 22, 2009 9:29 AM (in response to felipey)I came up with something.
seen that airPort (macbook alu 2.4) kept dropping signal I tried to fix transmission ch. on w.router (previously ALWAYS set on auto)
...well now works again at full speed and no dropping or misconnection.
possible that "AirPort Client 2009-001" (1.0) has such bug???MacBook alu 2.4 ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 23, 2009 2:14 PM (in response to felipey)Hello,
I have the same issue. I have a Netgear wireless router with transmission channel set on "Auto".
DHCP is disabled, all the IP addresses are manually selected.
And everything works well most of the times...
My sister's Acer laptop is stable connected, without any problem, while my MacBook keeps dropping the signal time to time, randomly.
Please someone find a solution, I can't stand that my 1.200 € MacBook is not connected while my sister's much cheaper Acer works without any issue!

Currently Being ModeratedAug 29, 2009 11:56 AM (in response to Merged Content 1)Hello,
I have contacted the Apple Support and they suggested to select the Channel 1, 6 or 11 on the Router Settings (no change on the mac settings).
They said that the above indicated channels are the "preferred ones" for the Apple systems...
I have followed their suggestion, in few weeks I will post the results of that setting.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 29, 2009 3:22 PM (in response to Luigi from Italy)Where do you find channel 1, 6 or 11? Where would you find the router settings? Is this something on the router itself or what?Macbook aluminum 13 inch, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

He said removing the battery actually resets the airport card. I just tried on on my uni macbook and it happens to work because I have been having this problem since upgrading to Snow Leopard. Hope it work for you.late 2007 imac, macbook / late 2008 macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
