make sure you're resetting everything at once when you do this, it should stay solid for a longer time, or indefinitely.

power everything off (not necessarily your mac, but can't hurt).
turn on your modem and leave it for a couple minutes.
then turn on your airport.
then try to connect (or if you left the macbook on, it may just connect on it's own).

if it keeps doing this, try moving the airport around, and make sure there's no obvious sources of interference nearby (cordless or cell phone, television, radio, blackberry, etc). you could also check to see if there are firmware updates available for both the modem and airport.

hope that helps!
