    Hey,

    So I've been having a problem with my Mac, I enable air port connection and it works but when I leave it on for like 20 - 30 min and I try to use wi fi, it tries to connect and it times out, so I have to turn the air port off and then on again.

    Has anyone come across this too? Is it a bug or can I bypass it?

    1. Go to the Apple icon in the top left corner, click About This Mac, and then click More Info…

    2. Look for Network and then click AirPort below it. This will take a second as your Mac loads all the wifi networks available.

    3. Find your network and look for your Channel number.

    4. Look through the other networks and see what channel they are on. If you see a lot of other networks using the same channel as your router then this may be your problem. Look for a channel number in the range of 1 to 11 not being used, or the number used least and then change the channel within your router settings.

    Hope this helps.
