Hi everybody,

I have been battling with airport wireless problem since I bought this laptop 2 weeks ago. I have macbook version 10.6.1 Mac OS X. I'm new macbook user. Everything looks perfect to me except a few things. Airport connection drove me crazy. it disconnect every 5-10 min and reconnect by it self. I called apple care, they asked me to take the laptop to another place where there is wireless connection, so, I took it to college where I'm studying now, and the connection seems to be working fine!!!! so, later I decided to call my internet provider Bell Canada. they tried to help for no reason. I tried to change from channel to channel but no point. As I'm reading the people review about snow leopard, i noticed this is considered to be as a common problem. Please if anyone has fix to my problem let me know.

Do you live in a dormitory or apartment building? Lots of other wireless in the area? What kind of construction and what's in between you and the WAP?

Is this at home where you are having the issues?

Is this your own Internet and not say the Apartment building Internet?

How are you connected to the Internet? DSL Modem? Cable?

What WiFi Router is providing your Wireless connect? Brands and models please.

Are you using Encryption like WEP, WPA, WPA2?

I think it's a problem with MacBooks as well.
Had a 2.1 MacBook White, and had the same problems.
Now I bought a MacBookPro, and it hasn't failed on me once...

I'm sorry to say that I don't know the solution.

You're from Canada right... found this recently, thought you might like it...

Take a look at this thread:

Major Airport Problem in Snow Leopard [problem solved] - Mac Forums

I've also read somewhere that setting a static ip can sometimes solve the problem as the problem isn't really having to do with the wifi connection itself but rather the DHCP assignment

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
