    ever since upgrading to 10.5.3 my airport will work for 5-10 minutes then stop responding until i turn airport off then back on again

    anyone else had this problem?

    and how exactly do you do that

    ive tried turing it off and back on, im talking about the airport card btw (apple needs to come up with different names for different things)

    its using a Dlink router/AP (which ive tried resetting too)

    Yeah the Airport has funky compatibilty with other brands; I had to flash my Linksys with dd-wrt firmware to get it working right. I'll probably return it tomorrow though (the Airport Express).

    As with reset there's a small button you poke with a needle or something; it's next to the audio jack and it's the reset button; you have to plug the Airport to power, press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds until the indicator blinks amber a few times.

    well, i got home last night and my airport express had no problems, so i guess it was just it not wanting to play nice with the dlink its dont this before, sorta, but one like once throughout the day, not every 5-10 minutes like it was doing yesterday
