    I reported this before, but thought I'd re-attack. My mid-2010 13" MBP has issues with my home WiFi.

    I'll connect to the WiFi just fine and have no issues for hours. Then randomly, the computer will lose the WiFi connection (I get an exclamation point over the airport icon). All my other devices are unaffected. The only way to resolve this is to reset the wifi router.

    Is this a MBP issue or a router issue? Since the other devices are fine (AppleTV, iPhones, other computers), I'm leaning towards a MBP issue.

    The reason for the WiFi issue is a conflict of IP address assignment (DHCP).

    I have to reset the router about once every 2 or 3 days because of this issue. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    I would set your MacBook to use a static IP instead of requesting an IP from DHCP. That may not identify the true problem, but could be a solution for the moment at least.
