I had a linksys then bought the mac and it didn't work, so I assumed it was linksys (and they don't officially support macs) so I foolishly bought an airport extreme to fix it and it didn't. Aftersearching macforums I found many ppl had a problem with wifi and 10.4.10 so I rolled back.linksys > all
Thats what I have and until this thread was unaware a problem exsisted.
I have had a 1.83 GHz MBP and now a month old 2.4 SR MBP.... No troubles except one place w/ Linksys WRT54GS; the only place that I know has one that I use... need to Turn Airport On/Off once in a while to keep going... No big deal but somewhat annoying...No Problems here either, MBP 2.4 SR.

And I had no problems until that update. Quite a few people with MBPs developed severe problems with that update. My connection will get dropped when the system is idle and won't reconnect. Other times (more frequently) the strength indicator will go from 5 bars to 3 and I will not be able to connect until I turn off the Airport and then turn it back on.They fixed this issue with an update. Should be no problem now. Solved my problems.
Loki at Apple Support Site said:OK - I'm not positive about this but - so far it seems to be working for me (I've only got one day of testing under my belt, and will post again later after more testing).
I found another post about replacing the Airport driver (.kext) file with the one from the 10.4.10 update package. Like I said - so far, so good - and I'll post again this week if all is stil going well.
I've put the .kext file from the update package into my public .mac folder, along with the short instructions if anyone so desires.
To get it, in your Finder click on Go/iDisk/Other User's Public Folder. At the Member Name dialog box that opens, enter "djloki" - no quotes.
When my public folder mounts, grab the .kext file and follow the instructions in the text file also located there.
Hope this works for everyone else as well!
As I mentioned before, that update fixed some people's problems and cause problems for others (myself being one of them). Since downgrading to the .10 updated driver, all my wifi problems have gone away. Some folks need the supplemental, post-.10 update, others can't function with it. For the latter group, I posted a solution that works for me and a lot of others.I thought they released a fix for the Airport problems after the .10 upgrade?
There's been so many updates in the past few months I've lost track.
