    Since installing the update I'm getting random airport disconnects.

    The thing is, I never EVER had this problem on 10.5.1.

    Any ideas of what to try to fix it?

    Try resetting the router itself (power down). Then bring your airport back online after the reset.

    That did not fix the problem.

    Very disappointed with Apple these days...

    I had this same problem. Hard booted the airport extreme but that didn't help.
    I then ran the airport diagnostic tool, which told me that there was no problem, and everything is back to normal.
    I don't know, worked for me.

    I don't have a airport base station, just the built in wireless card on my mac. Still experiencing this problem :(

    Wish I didn't update to 10.5.2

    I had a perfect connection, and now I get dropped every freggin 5minutes. It's so annoying. I feel you man. If I figure anything out, I'll post.

    It was perfect in 10.5.1 no drops what so ever!

    Thanks, same if I find something out. I tried deleting my airport keychain and rebooted. After reconnecting i didn't get a whole drop for about 20 mins.

    But I spoke too soon...just got dropped a few mins ago.

    Search keychain in spotlight..you'll find the keychain access application. Open it..and you should see a keychain entry for your router. Delete it and then disconnect and reconnect to your router. It should resave your keychain.

    Didn't fix my issue though :(

    I am not experiencing any problems at all running 10.5.2 with my Macbook and Airport Extreme Base Station. In fact it is running faster than it ever had.

    For me, I had one issue of this, out of hours of stable internet use. That is a lot better than it was for me with 10.5.1.

    Lucky.

    I live in Canada, and I have a 2-Wire wireless modem from Bell Sympatico, and it was working fine before, but now it seems to have turned retarded... and I mean it.

    NOW I can't even get ONTO the internet at ALL... no matter what wireless router I connect to in my house (I have 1 more). I restarted, still the same problem.

    Also, for some reason, my network doesn't show up all the time (under wireless). Right now I'm typing on my desktop, which is connected to the 2-wire and it's working fine... :mad:

    I think I may have found a solution, just disable IPv6 via Network properties in System Preferences. It was disconnecting every 10 minutes or so before, working now though :)

    I had that disabled in 10.5.1 and thats how I got it to work without being disconnected.

    Now, I THINK I fixed it. Cleared my keychain, reset my router and so far so good

    *knocks on every single piece of wood in house* ;)

    Ditto. Personally, I think a lot of problems talked about on here are simple PBKAC errors.

    obviously not since it was working fine in 10.5.1 :mad:

    I tried turning off ipv6, still have the problem.

    I miss 10.5.1 :(

    Ever since installing Leopard, my mac has had airport connectivity issues--big time. What's so weird is that while the internet on my brand new imac running Leopard acts sporadic, slow, unpredictable; my years old powerbook running PANTHER surfs the web consistently, quickly, and without dropouts.

    I was THRILLED when I discovered the 10.5.2 was out. But it DIDN'T fix it! I'm still having the same problems!

    ARRGGG! I SOOOO wish someone had a solution to this.

    Ugh!

    I am having these issues too!

    I noticed that it happens more frequently when iChat is open. I would call apple, but it seems that y'all know more about what is going on then they probably do.
