This is a fairly large problem with Macbooks, just not all I guess. Lots of complaints lodged on the Apple Discussion forums (

When upgraded to 10.4.10, the Macbook no longer can retain a connection when using the Internet. Safari locks up, Kernals, and you get that screen with the various languages telling you to shut it down.

Only fix is to switch back to the earlier OS. I sat on the Phone with Apple support and the guy told me this was common and that Apple realised the problem. Looks like they are in no hurry to fix it though.

I then read a discussion on the apple forums that if you used airport extreme, for whatever reason, it worked ok with 10.4.10. People on the discussion forum had said they were told by Apple support to buy an airport extreme station, which seems odd to me.
