Hey, I've tried searching the forums but I'm still in the dark so therefore I'm asking my question here, to you guys. Since a week or so my Macbook has recently started dropping its internet connection. I can use the it for 1hr or so and then the bars reduce and my connection is suddenly gone even though I have 2 bars left and I'm still connected to the network. The only thing I can do then is wait, wait and wait for my connection to come back. Sometimes after 5 minutes, sometimes after 5 hours. I've tried various solutions on my router and Macbook itself: Manual IP address Change security from WEP to WPA2 Disable MAC filtering Change key Change channel Disable interfering devices (wireless phone, other laptops, ...) Rebooted Deleted pref files and stored locations Created a new location with only Airport in ... Yet I still can't surf proper. Anyone else encountered this issue? It happened all of a sudden whilst I had been surfing for a day or so. Suddenly - after taking a sigarette break and upon returning - my computer went bullocks. This is no fun and I sincerely hope to find a solution. Does anyone, please, have any ideas on how to solve this? Thank you very much in advance BantV Macbook 2006 Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard (latest updates) 2.0Ghz C2D; 2GB RAM When my connection is fine I have a transmit rate of 54, when I have 2 bars the transmit rate is 1-6.
