Similar situation - no solutions yet. I did try disconnecting everything from the MacBook Pro - external Samsung monitor, external back-up drive, keyboard and Canon printer. And, wireless Apple mouse. Been like that all day and not dropped connection once. It was suggested that I might have the laptop too close to the wireless router ( Verizon). but I'm actually closer now - 4' vs 6' - so that doesn't work. I will work like this for a day or two and see what happens. I updated the software/firmware on the router but it didn't make any difference. Will add the external devices back one every few days and see what happens. It was sporadic at times to begin with. Know what you mean by "frustrating".
I just got my 13 inch Macbook Pro yesterday. My internet connection works fine on two other computers in the house, but my brand new mac can't seem to get pass the start up page in Safari. My ipod touch has no problem. I've contacted apple and was told to do a systems update. After I did that, the problem continues. They mentioned that it might be because I'm running it on a WEP encryption rather than a WPA. Hoping for a solution soon.
What router? Make sure you have the latest firmware for it. It might help if you included some info about your set up in the My Settings to the right---------->. When you bought your MBP says nothing. Model type, ram, etc. can be helpful. Have you tried at hot spots like Starbucks? I understand your frustration and it's appropriate to express it but the rest of the diatribe is just a rant. If you keep to the issues and post as much info as possible and what you have tried folks here are more apt to try and help.
