    Hello folks,

    I just bought a brand new MacBook white and so far I love it.

    There is one annoying issue I cant seem to fix. I constantly have to renew my DHCP lease in System Preferences as the connection keeps dropping. Either that or turn Airport off and then on.

    The Mac is connected to a router configured using WPA-PSK, which is hooked to a broadband connection.

    The issue doesnt seem to happen with my other wireless devices (iPhone, PS3...)

    Any clue?

    Thanks!

    I had the same problem when I first got my Airport Extreme base station.
    In the airport utility I went to manual setup, Internet, DHCP, and I set the DHCP lease for 364 days.


    Now, if you do not have airport and the airport utility then I am not sure.
