    Hi everyone,
    I have some strange problems on my alu iMac. When I first got my iMac I used airport a lot. And it worked very well. Then I switched over to cable, because it was possible. But now I am back at some wireless place and I have strange troubles with the Airport.

    When I connect to a network everything works fine. But out of a sudden the connection stops. The triangle still indicates a good reception, but I can't even ping the default gateway. This happens even in Bootcamp.
    The connection is alive for at most 30 seconds to 1 minute or so.

    Does anyone have the same problems?
    I think the hardware is fine as it works before, but it is the same problem in bootcamp, so I guess it is firmware related.

    Here is some stuff that I have in my System log:
    Jun 8 00:20:48 localhost kernel[0]: AirPort: Roam (Beacons Lost)
    Jun 8 00:20:52 localhost kernel[0]: AppleYukon2 - en0 link active, 100-Mbit, full duplex, symmetric flow control enabled port 0
    Jun 8 00:21:10 localhost kernel[0]: WLC_E_COUNTRY_CODE_CHANGED
    Jun 8 00:21:10 localhost SystemUIServer[116]: Error: airportd MIG failed = 1 ((os/kern) invalid address) (port = 60263)
    Jun 8 00:21:10 localhost kernel[0]: en1: 802.11d country code set to 'X3'.
    Jun 8 00:21:10 localhost kernel[0]: en1: Supported channels 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 36 40 44 48 52 56 60 64

    The network is a b/g WPA network.

    I really have no idea what the problem might be..

    FYI: I kind of "solved" the problem by reposition the antenna of the router for a little bit. But the strength indicator still bumps around like crazy. Going down to 1 and up to 5 within a minute without any reason.
