    I bought a new MBP a few weeks ago and it works great for the most part, but when I connect to my home network via wireless, the connection works great for about 5 minutes then the network craps out and no other computers can connect. I'll turn off my MBP and unplug the modem and router and within minutes my PC's can connect and the connection is good again. I have a Netgear router and a linksys modem. Anyone have any ideas what's going on?

    i had the same issue, and after contacting netgear they told me to change the fragmentation threshold and RTS thresholds to 1800. you can do this in the setup of your router. open a browser and put in 192.168.1.1 and it will ask for your password. the default username is admin and password is password. first off change the pw to something else, and then go to the wireless settings tab and change those 2 values. write down the old ones in case this doesnt help.
