Just bought my first Mac (Macbook Pro 15, 2.8). It's wonderful, but while on my home wi-fi network, I keep losing connection - about once every 10 minutes or so. I get screen telling me that my network connection was lost, then it sends me to network diagnostics where I have to go through several steps, usually having to re-enter my network password. Then, I regain connection and I'm back up. I am using and AT&T 2Wire router and my connection strength is fine. Any advise? Thanks in advance.

Most likely interference from another RF device on the same frequency. See this guide for more detail:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
