    had the very same problem with my MBP and Qwest provided all-in-one modem/router... went out and purchased the d-link dir655 for my router and have had zero problems since.

    Not at all. See the Wireless Networking FAQ (linked to in my signature) and start walking through the steps and get back to us with whether the problem persists.

    Typically wireless issues that pop up seemingly out of nowhere are related to a neighbor who recently added a wireless network. Usually just changing the channel that your router uses for its signal will correct the problem.
