    I have some question about the Airport wireless connection. I have my mac connected to my wireless network. For the last two weeks, these are the things I have noticed.

    - The connection to the router is lost prompting me to enter the security key
    - Connection to websites takes 5 to 6 tries even though the mac is connected to the network and I have full signal.

    All of these problems are solve by turning the AirPort on and off and it will works correctly.

    My question is if the problem is with the mac wifi connection or my network and router. The router is a linksys router WRT160N.

    It's probably your router.
    You need to update router firmware or powercycle the router.

    I thought it was the router but I have my iphone, wii, other two laptops and none of them have the same problems. The other laptops are windows based. Is there any other problem that could be causing this?
