    I work in a building where I.T. is no help whatsoever. Now that we've got that out of the way, let me explain my situation.

    I work for a business that sells a lot of computers, Macs specifically. We've got a wi-fi network in our building; however, the network constantly drops out. Despite our pleas to IT, they will not fix the issue. Our demo computers that customers can play with and consider purchasing often lose Internet access because of this. Whenever this happens, I have to manually turn the Airport off and then back on again, which will get it to reconnect.

    Does anybody know of a way to have the computer automatically do this every so often?

    This hint tells you how to turn Airport on and off with a command. Create a script that turns it off and then on again and then schedule that to run every so often...

    Get new IT. Do you have your own internet connection, or the airport is piggybacking off another wifi connection?
