    My browser and other application keeps timing out. It times out for 30 seconds. then its alright for quite sometime , then it times out again for another 30 seconds or so. Then it works fine again. I have the Macbook Pro Unimodel 15.4", Mac OS X 10.6.4 . The pings are alright. just my browser and the other applications. I have a WRT54GC linksys router at home. What seems to be the problem? It's annoying :( Help.......

    When u click on automatic .. from the drop down select new location and give it a name then apply .. then close system preferences and restart the computer
    Then join the network again .
