    So, I have a Mac, a PC, and an iPhone. The PC and iPhone are connected to the wireless network with no issues, however my Mac all of a sudden will lose the internet connection after a minute. It's still connected to the network, but there's no internet (e.g. the Airport 'bars' are full but the Dropbox status icon is blank/no green check... also I can't go online in Safari).

    Given that my 2 other devices are fine, what could be happening? I already rebooted and the issue still persists....

    If your Mac is a laptop that travels go to System Preferences->Network tab and click the Advanced button. There delete any other previous witness less connections. See if that helps.
