    I just got my macbook three weeks ago. But when I hook the ethernet cable in there it is all gravy.

    wireless connectivity problems

    My macbook is about 4 years old. I upgraded to Leopard about 8 months ago. It has been 3 days now that I can't connect to my wireless router, unless I am in the room where the router is located. If I step out, it drops the connection.

    I contacted Comcast, Belkin (router manufacturer) and I went to apple store.
    Belkin guy tried changing bunch of settings and at the end said the problem was the computer. Apple store suggested shutting down and removing the battery. I did that too to no avail.

    Do you guys have any clue what might have happened all of a sudden?

    By the way, in the room that I don't have connectivity now, other devices including the finicky ipad connects to the wireless network. But macbook doesn't see it or it drops the connection.

    I appreciate your help.

    I shouldn't say "crashes", sorry, but it drops the signal constantly. My co-worker says this happens to his macbook when he is at home. I just wonder why it is happening. :confused:
