    Intersting, I am having no problems with network connectivity between my AppleTV 2.0.1 and my Airport Extreme (5GHz 802.11n w/ wide channels enabled).

    This explains my problem. I am running 5Ghz (n only) network.

    It's strange because after the 2.0 update, my tv would consistently drop the connection when it was left idle. I would have to reconnect every time before using it, but streaming, syncing and playback worked fine.

    After the 2.0.1 update, this problem was fixed and the tv keeps its connection no matter how long it's left idle. However, now I'm having issues with the tv losing connection in the middle of streaming and syncing.

    I'll turn off the wide channels and see if that helps.

    Ok I can confirm the problem .... a transfer timed out and wouldn't resume until I turned off wide channels.

    Sigh .....

    Turned off the wide channels... and this seems to have fixed my problem. Let's hope apple fixes this bug soon.
