Hi
Im a relatively new Mac user and although my iMac is setup and running I keep getting this message:
Wifi: Looking for networks
which makes it impossible for me to work from home as the connection is constantly dropping. I have no issues with other non mac computers/laptops in the house only my iMac. I need to RDC in for work and its impossible.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks

LOTS more info required:

Model of iMac? OS version?
Model of router? Security setup? Possible interference issues? Is the router IP limited (ie have you set it to only give out so many IP addresses?) Could there be a MAC address conflict (has nothing to do with Apple)?

The more info you can give us, the more likely we are to be able to make good suggestions.
QUOTE Thanks
