    I have my iMac always on, serving up our big iTunes library to our wireless network around the house. It seems to fall off the network fairly regularly, every few days or so. I have the newer Airport extreme and several Airport expresses (not the latest ones) connected to stereos in different rooms of the houses.

    But this has always happened, for a year or so. Anyone know what it might be? thanks!

    Ive kind of got the same problem. My iMac just drops off the wireless network in my house. What ISP are you with?

    Tim Warner Cable. But does it have anything to do with the ISP? this I would think is just Airport/Mac newwork trouble.

    Maybe it's interference from a wireless home phone or microwave? Try switching to another channel.
