Hello, 1st ever post.

Bought a Macbook 2.4 in white

yesterday while at home the macbook kept dropping in wifi connection.

Starting thinking "oh ho, might have to take this back"

Then I read this.

What version of software are you on 10.5.2 10.5.3?

If you're not on 10.5.3 update (maybe connect be cable to the router temporarily) and see if that improves things.

Me too....hateful isn't...all this work nonsense getting the way of serious mac work

It's always hit and miss diagnosing a wi-fi connection remotely so these are just hit and hope ideas:
- change your wi-fi channel
- change the security type (maybe disable encryption temporarily to see if the connection reliability improves)
- update the router firmware
