hey

ive had a macbook pro since 2010 and ive never had connection problems ever. well until recently, about 2 days ago my connection suddenly went unstable and i really don't know what the cause of it is. i mean i can get connection and its still fast as always but in the time frame of 1minute to a hour it will stop loading pages or go offline skype yet still show its connected and at full bars.all i have to do to "fix it" is turn airport off and back on or close the lid putting it to sleep and waking it up again and eventually after 1 or 3 tries it will connect again for god knows how long before it does it again. whats going on? why is it suddenly doing this out of no where? is there a fix?

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Had precisely this problem last week with a Linskys modem/router. A new TP-Link works like a charm. Have found three years is a pretty good run although local thunderstorms can bring about an early demise!

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!
