hi guys, everytime i try to use airport, it connects to the network, and when i click on the icon it has a check next to the network. but the airport bars keep going up and down like its scanning something, and when i try to get on the internet, it says im not connected, on leopard it never had this problem. after like 5 minutes it connects and then i have internet, but its really annoying. has anyone else had this problem? and if so do u know how to fix it? thanks in advance!

I used to have this problem when there were loads of wireless networks around my mac.

Does your router have the ability to change the channel that it distributes its wireless signal on? I changed mine to a different one and it solved the problem.
