Updated half an hour ago. No problems so far, but I didn't have any issues in the first place.

MacBook Pro 1.83 GHz.

Geeze, slightly vague. I'm hoping this will fix the wifi drop offs I've been experiencing since updating to 10.4.10. :eek:

Have you guys been seeing AirPort actually disconnect (and go grayed out), or just an Internet connection drop? I am seeing my Internet drop out several times a day, but AirPort is always connected and good. So I am not sure if my problem is AirPort or ISP related :confused:

I'll be typing away (IM/ MR/ other sites/ email) when all of a sudden everything screeches to a halt.

Look up.

Sure enough, the wifi network get's grayed out, de-selected. I have to reselect the network, not a HUGE ordeal, but obnoxious when it happens more than once every few hours. :eek:

Internet connection drop for me (OS X still thinks it is connected).

I will run this update when I get home and see if it fixes the issue.

i knew this was an airport station problem and not the airport card problem. the internet dropoff occurs only when you are using the Airport Extreme Station. I was getting so pissed to the point of getting rid of MBP. Hopefully this will fix the problem.

hasn't stopped my random reboots or kernel panics that only started with 10.4.10 also my system.log still gets filled up with:

AppleYukon: 00000000,00000000 skqueue - SkEventDispatcher - ignoring event queue, hardware is not responding

which I believe is more to do with the ethernet card in my Macbook. When I'm at work at plugged into the ethernet I don't get the random reboots or kernel panics so am hoping for 10.4.11 or patiently waiting for 10.5.0 :)
