    Hello
    alright so I purchased a new 24" iMac and I am using a wireless connection. But it is weird, my airport will random switch off of my wireless network, even though it is still up and running beautifully. Is there something that I am doing wrong? Is there a trick? Is there a time out? Because about every 20 mins I get booted off my wireless network and I have to select the wireless network again, it is very frustrating. If you have a suggestion it's greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    hi, i'm also interested in any replies to this as this happens to me alot with my iMac 17". My iMac kind of goes through phases of doing it alot, then not for a few days/weeks, it's very frustrating, especially if you leave something to download and it keeps being stopped. I have checked the router when the connection from my mac fails, and is always still connected to the internet and wireless still on etc..is very strange!

    Try going to

    Apple>System Preferences>Network

    Make sure the connection type you want as your primary is at the top ie I am hard wired so ethernet is first then airport is second

    Delete the ones you do not need

    Also try turning off sleep options as this can cause them to drop off hte wireless due to inactivity by the router

    You might want to try logging into your wireless router settings and adjusting the wireless channel.

    It could also be your ISP, and might want to contact them to make sure everything is ok.

    That's interesting because mine will do that and well I'm sick of it. I haven't found a fix yet. It's annoying to say the least.

    yeah it is annoying, i've followed all the steps on here to prevent it happening in the future, but as i mentioned before, it doesn't do it all the time, and thankfully it's not done it for a while. lets hope it stays that way!
