Hi, so before i "archive and install" to try and fix the airport dropout problems, i thought i'd try installing Windows through BootCamp (which rocks by the way!) and i found the airport connection is just a bad in Windows XP as it is in Leopard. Which makes me worried as i think i might now have a duff Airport Card (even though all my symptoms are consistent with people who have been able to solve the problems either with 10.5.2 or other solutions) Problem is my mac pro is only a couple of months old and i really haven't got the time to be sending it away for testing/replacement etc as i have a couple of major projects coming up that will need the full power of the MP! Should i try an "Archive and Install" or start phoning up Apple? I don't even have the time/inclination to do a full on "Erase and Install" - especially if this isn't software/system file related... Please any advice appreciated!
