    Has anyone done a clean wipe (as I'm about to do) and re-update to 10.5.2?

    If so, do the wireless dropouts persists?

    I HAD ARCHIVED AND INSTALLED TO THE INTIAL RELEASE OF LEOPARD.

    whoa sorry caps...

    animations seemed choppy, not everything flowed nicely.

    Upon the release of 10.5.2 I wiped cleaned and installed. This has been the leopard experience I had expected when I first bought the os. Aside from a few minor bugs (mainly with MS office) there are no problems. The wireless is perfect, I have never dropped a connection

    Well, did you have any wireless problems with 10.5.2 before? Because those are the people I'm addressing this to.

    yes, often times i couldnt even get a connection to my home network. Other times it would drop and take a restart to connect again.

    I have performed an Erase and Install on a friends 24" iMac and it works great, he had corrupted some files by playing in the Terminal and I didn't feel like manually editing each of them back to defaults, so I just wiped it. He had everything backed up anyway.

    Haven't had to do this on my MacBook Pro, works great, I went from 10.5 (which was only for 3 hours, when I first got the computer up and running), and then 10.5.1, and now 10.5.2. Great experience there. :)

    Try This

    I would advise to do a clean install. No upgrade or archive and install. The reason why people are having so many of these problems is because they have upgraded OS's so many times e.g( Panther-Tiger-Leopard). This honestly makes the OS shaky. It was carries the network files from these OS's which might be the problem.

    So i would advise you to backup everything and clean install and follow this guide i created http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=433131 and u will be fine.

    can someone be kind enough to talk me through a clean install.

    will i have to spend 2 days reinstalling my apps?

    I have been using time machine. Can/Do i use this to do a clean install?

    But i thought i had solved the dropouts with 10.5.2, but they have just come back in the last 24 hours.

    is a clean install likely to help me solve dropouts?
