    Hey everyone,

    Does anyone else experience this issue?

    I have Airport Express (two in fact that create an extended network). . .anyway. . .everyonce in a while devices will refuse to connect. They'll see the network but won't join (just spinning connecting animation).

    My PlayStation won't see it until I reset the airport. . .or my phone.

    This is an example of my phone right now:


    Where as I'm sending this via the Mac on the same network? :S

    I have these "dropouts" about every 2 to 3 months. When I used to use netgear, linksys and other routers the dropouts were much more frequent. I suspect that most of the dropouts I experienced had something to do with Comcast but all I know is these days I'm not resetting things more than every 60 to 90 days whereas before I got an Airport Extreme, I was resetting things once or twice a week.

    I turn the network off every night so it's just so random and annoying as it can strike at ay time :(
