    Hey people. I've got a MBP with leopard and im having probems seeing my network. When I first installed leopard it worked (barely) but now its no go. I havent changed any of my settings, at least not that i know of.

    My setup is, 1x MBP over wireless, 1x PC over wireless, 2x PC over ethernet.

    can anyone help?

    There are some problems with networking over wireless. Do you have all the latest software updates?

    How are you connecting at home? I'm assuming it is wirelessly. Same for work?

    those looking for a linear answer....

    those looking for a linear answer to you issues are not going to find it right away, all systems here are different, what works for one may not work for the other, I have been over the Apple forums and its the same thing, some have improved the net, networking and wireless connections by trying out things that affects other issues, I'm also crossing-over these issues because in a way they are related, for those that are coming in I would advise to read from the beginning of the thread, there are folks that are unnecessarily initiating new threads relating to the same problem. Unless you wait for the immense Apple OS update you may as well read these forums, you may find the solution in these pages.

    One more thing...

    So I have managed to maintain a stable connection by going into the router's settings and selecting one channel instead of automatic and selecting mixed mode instead of Wireless G. It has been stable and connects after sleep or any shutdowns.

    what i have is a...

    D-link Di-524 wireless 2.4 gz 802.11g, one thing I do remember from Tiger's own wireless issues was that at one time cordless phones where causing drop- outs, some fixed the issue by changing their phone to wired ones, but so far its been rock-steady.
