    Macbook Pro Wireless Connectivity Issues With Linksys Router
    My Macbook has problems consistently connecting with my Linksys wireless router. I can open it up and immediately run the internet one minute, and the next time I open it an hour or two later I am dropped. Sometimes, turning the Airport on and off a few times will rectify the issue, but generally it requires me getting on the PC that my router is hooked up to and resetting the router. My parents are divorced, and I have no problem with the AT&T modem/router in my Mom's house, or with any other wireless internet. This seems to be an case isolated to my Wireless-G Broadband Linksys Router, model number WRT54G2 V1.5.

    I was wondering if there is a setting I should change either in the router's settings or in my Macbook Pro's settings, or if I will have to get a new router to fix this problem. Please list out instructions clearly step by step, even the mundane things, and explain what each does so I can get an understanding of the relationship between my computer and router so I can know what to do again if this happens in the future.

    Let me know if you need more informations. Thanks!

    How far away from the router is your computer? Do you get these connectivity problems even if you set your laptop near the router?
