    In the core of a black hole.
    You're not clear here, are you losing the wireless connection or does your browser lock up?

    Since you went away I edit this one:

    If you are disconnected from wifi regularly then adding your wifi network in Network Preferences might work.
    It's under Advanced in your airport network preference Pane.

    Always a day away
    Hard to think a faulty hard drive is causing wifi issues. Sounds like something else is going on.

    It may not be your iMac, could be your router.

    Do you have any other wi-fi enabled devices you could test with?

    No.. your hard drive wont cause whatever you have going on to happen.. unless your flux capacitor is going bad. You should call Apple and ask if they still cover those.
