    Hi,
    I'm new to the forums but getting tired of this stupid problem. For about 2 or 3 weeks I have been having a lot of problems with my Mini staying connected to the internet. Whenever I get off the computer and it falls asleep, when i get back on and get on the internet, its saying that i'm not connected to the internet. So i click on network diagnostics, choose which network im on and go to the next step. then it tells me that my network settings have changed and everythings fine. This morning i experienced a problem where i tried to get on a game store's website, and it told me that there was an error. so i attempted to get on another website and it did the same thing.
    Can someone please help, it's driving me nuts having this problem.

    Mac OS X 10.5.4
    1.42 GHz PowerPC G4--Processor
    512 MB DDR SDRAM--Memory

    This is the information for my computer, is it possible that i need more memory or something?

    Please help,
    Thank you,
    Andy

    Lack of memory is not causing the problem.

    Are you connecting to the internet via wireless or hardwire?

    This is a long shot, but maybe the internal antenna connection is loose. You
    could check that.

    Recent changes to base station

    Have you made any recent changes to the base station config ?

    Have you added any new machines to your wireless cloud ?

    What version of the airport are you using ?

    These things matter too.
