has anyone else had this issue? the internet on my macbook is so slow, and very intermittent. it seems that after a few minutes it will just disconnect itself and not work anymore, until i reconnect to the network.

i feel like im on 56k all over again.

i did a google search and found nothing useful. any tips would be nice

it's not the router, because i bought a new one thinking that was it. and my mini is incredibly fast, connected by wireless and cable.

There are a lot of wireless networks in the area, about 8 to be exact. 9 on a clear day. I've changed channels, and had no luck.

I don't think the speed of the line is relevant, as my wired computers are fine, don't drop a connection, and load everything properly.

The router is a brand new Belkin N1 Vision. The thing is amazing, and has a freakishly long range, and for the size house we have, I needed it. Before I was using a D-Link N something, and had the same issues. So I know it's not router related.
