    I've been experiencing a problem with my MBP (or my Linksys WRT54Gv8 / GSv7) for a while now...

    Sometimes, let me stress SOMETIMES, my network will crash... My iPhone can see the network but I get the "Unable to Connect to Network" message. And my MBP not be connected to the internet. I thought it could just be my router, but I have other wireless clients (PS3, Xbox, Printer, iPhone, etc.) that work just fine. But I think my MBP is what is "crashing" my router and forcing me to restart it...

    Any ideas?

    I had a similar situation with a Netgear router. I thought maybe the router was finally starting to fail because I've had it for a while. But it happened with a couple routers I bought to replace it as well. So I think it must have been my MacBook Pro not playing nice. I wasn't going to get rid of the MacBook, so I got a Time Capsule instead. Haven't had a single problem since.
