    I have an ALU 3.06 iMac, which was working perfectly until I upgraded to 10.5.4... now I get numerous wifi dropouts.. Its not the router because I have a core duo macbook(the first release) which is also updated to 10.5.4 and is running with no problems at all....

    Is there any patch or anything I can put into terminal to fix this... It really is a pain in the a**

    Thanks P.....

    Random possible solution...

    Try switching the channel the Wi-Fi operates over, try 11. Our iMac G5 after an update decided it didn't want to work anymore, after doing some Googling I found the recommendation to try another channel, specifically 11. Worth a shot.

    I've noticed this as well.. I constantly have to turn Airport off and on and reconnect to my network after 10.5.4

    If these dont work try switching off wi-fi, trashing your keygen database (especially the airport related keys), going to HD>Library>Preferences>System Configuration and trashing the following files:

    Network Identification.plist
    Airport preferences.plist
    Network interfaces.plist

    restart your mac and turn on airport and find your network, select it and just follow instructions from there
