    Hi all,

    Ever since I installed to 10.6.1, I have been having issues with WiFi.

    I'm only getting 3 bars, and my iMac is sitting less then a foot away from my AEBS, on 10.6 I was getting 4, also I've been dropping my WiFi connection every hour or so, and I have to turn AirPort in on my iMac off and turn AirPort back on.

    This is really annoying and I don't know what to do, anyone have any ideas?

    I've already reset my AEBS twice and that hasn't worked.

    Thanks,

    Don

    In the airport setup have you used Use interference robustness which is under the wireless tab at the bottom.

    I have found it has stopped the dropouts for me as the cordless phone and my mobile seemed to be interfering a lot.

    It may help.

    My Mac mini drops out every 5 minutes... Started since 10.6.1 was installed.
