    I'm having Wireless problems with my Macbook Pro (2.5ghz, purchased 7-2008). This is the best PC I've owned, except for it doesn't seem to like my router. I've even reflashed the router with DD-WRT and it still does the same thing (It's a Linksys WRT-54GL which I purchased due to its high reliability. Every so often, such as now, my macbook pro will automatically disconnect from the router. It usually connects me to the neighbor's slow network. I try to reconnect to my router (WEP protected) and it asks me to enter the password which is alreay filled out. I hit connect, and it can't connect. Minutes to hours later my Macbook Pro is on my wireless connection without problems.

    What gives? Is there a fix for it? Buy another router? I'm not sure if it the problem is the router as I can connect to the router via my iphone when my Macbook Pro is having issues.

    I have the same router and the 2.53 MBP purchased in late Feb. I had read about the connection problems when researching my purchase. I have never experienced a problem with my connection. I know that doesn't help but i don't believe it is the router.

    Now my iphone can't connect to it and my Macbook Pro can't even see it. Maybe the router is my issue??
