    imac Intermittant Internet
    HI everyone, there seem to be a lot of these threads on here, but none that exhibit my issue. I have a 2.4 ghz iMac running 10.6.8. My daughter accidentally spilled water on my macbook laptop running 10.5.9. I used migration assistant to load my laptop account onto my iMac. The moment it loaded I am now having connectivity issues. My internet lasts for about 15 seconds before i have to switch off the airport and then switch it back on. The connection re-establishes for about 15 seconds and then I repeat ad infinitum. I am thinking that it copied some setting over from the 10.5 into 10.6 that is conflicting? I have deleted my laptop account off but the issue still exists. Do I have to delete everything and reload from the backup on my imac? Is there a way I can use time machine to reload the correct settings? Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Who knows what is corrupted following the spill. Pop the Snow Leopard DVD in, erase and format the hard drive and do a clean install and update to OS X.6.8 using the combo updater.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
