    Congrats on the purchase!! I have a feeling your going to love your new computer, so is your wife. You'll get to enjoy it instead of trying to figure it out all the time. Now to your wireless; are you using WEP or WPA? WPA works better in my experience, especially on Macs. Did you check the firmware on the router? It might need an update.

    Thanks,

    Congrats on a powerful MBP.

    I bought a 17" 2.6ghz a month or so ago: same machine as yours basically and I love it.

    As far as your MBP dropping the wireless signal, that is strange. I have not had that problem.

    Perhaps give Apple a call.

    Out of curiousity, why did you choose the glossy screen? I'm glad they give people options on the MBP, but after looking at the newer iMacs in the store, I HATE the glossy screen. I will never buy an iMac as long as they don't have the matte screen option because I can't stand the glare.

    Not sure what your wireless problem is. There's always the chance of a bad wireless adapter. Maybe take your computer to a free WiFi hotspot and see if you have problems there. If so, it's either some config or the adapter.
