I have Time Capsule running in 'N' only mode and my Apple TV consistently drops the wireless signal every day or so... I have to go in and retype my wireless password every time, which is really annoying.

Has anyone been experiencing this problem? Any suggestions? Is it a big enough problem to contact Apple about?

I had this problem for about six months. I tried everything -- changing the Airport's security, moving the AppleTV, restoring the firmware -- everything.

The problem just kept getting worse and worse until one day the AppleTV wouldn't connect to any network at all. I took it to the Apple Store and in 11 minutes they replaced it with a new (well, probably refurbished) unit which works perfectly.

Ahhh--that makes me feel better, I'll call Apple tomorrow. Thanks!
