    I don't have much experience with Macs, so I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong here or not. My wireless connection seems to drop every 30 minutes or so, and 8 out of 10 times when I reboot, my connection isn't re-established until I actually click on the radio wave icon and select my wireless network.

    My network is the only one listed in the preferred networks list, and I have selected options not to connect to any others that might be found. I've been through every menu and option in both the Network preferences panel and Internet Connect, tried everything short of the command line, and am still having problems.

    It's not my router which has been reset several times, and my iMac has no trouble maintaining connection when I boot it into Windows XP. Is there anything else I can look at? Can somebody help me out?

    Awesome. I did check the Apple site, but missed that article somehow.

    Thing is, I'm pretty sure I've done all that already. I'll try again though.
