AirPort constantly drops the wifi connection randomly.
You might try resetting your connection settings using the steps listed in this message:
They're not guaranteed to solve the problem, but they'll only take a minute or so to try.
Thanks for the tip, Mr. Boyd. Unfortunately,none of those fixes worked. They all appeared initially, but the problem keeps coming back. Any other ideas? There's signal - Airport on my MBP just isn't picking it up most of the time. If I submit the password over and over again, eventually I can get a connection, but it usually drops within a few minutes.
Are others having this problem?

You might try one of the Stumbler utilities to monitor the signal strength your Mac is seeing to see if anything odd happens when the signal drops. Otherwise I have no other suggestions.
Fixed it! After a trip to the Genius Bar, I went home and took my 2wire 2701 dsl modem out of the equation (AT&T ran data from the wall to the 2701 modem/wireless routerto a 2wire 3800 modem/wireless router (2 routers?) to my G5 and my AEBS - don't ask me why. Anyway, I got rid of the 2701 so data goes straight to the 3800. From there I ran ethernet directly to the AEBS. Now rather than using a 2wire network (802.11g) I can use the AEBS (802.11n), which has plenty of range and signal strength (better performance than AT&T's ******** setup).
