    Have you tried reinstalling the OS using the USB stick that came with the MBA?

    I had that issue with iPhones and other wifi devices. Turned out to be my linksys Wireless router. Switched to an airport extreme and haven't had the problem since.

    First step is to calm yourself down.

    I had an issue with dropping wifi connections when I first got my MBA. Figured it was the laptop for sure because I had another laptop that didn't have the issue and was associated with the same router. Just for good measure though I power cycled the router and all was well.

    Try this simple trick it saves me a lot of times might work for you, go to your WiFi router settings and change the Channel id, it was on 6 for me and used to get very slow speeds disconnections changed to 1 and its like a new router.

    You might need to play around to get the best channel with the least interference.
