    I have a fully updated macbook with 10.5.6 on it. Wireless runs fine while I am using it, but if I leave it for 15 minutes and try and refresh a page or load a new page it is not connected.
    The airport bar says full signal connection but I have no internet.
    Clicking turn off airport and turning it back on brings back internet access.

    The netgear dg834n router is causing no issues with 4 other pc/macs in the house and the connection remains stable.

    Any thoughts on what I can do to keep my connection working?


    (Typically it had dropped in the time it took me to write this post!!!)

    I have the same router and occasionally get a dropped signal and have to restart airport and open&close safari. This is on an old iBook G4 though.
