    On my MacBook, I lose my wireless connection rather frequently. When I go to the menu bar to change my network when I lose the connection, it seems like there are more wireless networks available from when I first connected.

    It seems as though I lose the connection when more or less wireless networks become available. How can I solve this? In fact, as I type this, I just lost the connection and have to reconnect. It's not a big deal, but it's frustrating.

    Sounds very much like this issue.

    I have the same problem on my MB and I don't know how to fix it. Luckily my discos are fairly infrequent.

    Do you use the Preferred Networks option in the Network- Airport prefs?

    I don't know about the OP, but no I have mine set to automatic.

    Still on and off

    I do use preferred networks. Maybe the next OS or Airport update will help.
