    Hi, I have a late 2009 iMac and with Snow Leopard I never had Wifi problems. Since updating to Lion back in July, I have been experiencing wifi disconnections. At first it was happening twice a day but I find that it got worst now and it can happen 10 times in an hour.

    Is there anything that can be done to solve this wifi issue? I have an early 2010 13' MacBook Pro and it doesn't disconnect at all with Lion installed.

    Thanks in advance!

    Downgrade the WiFi drivers to SL.

    I'm a noob. The address of the modem? 192.168.1.1? and where?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Try deleting your existing WiFi network connection in Network Preferences, then connect again.

    Open Network Preference >> Advanced >> TCP/IP >> Remember IPv4, Subnet and Router info >> Click on Configure IPv4 line and choose Manually >> Insert the info >> Ok >> Apply.
