    Hi All,
    Joined the macbook pro family 2 weeks ago but having some problems,
    hope someone can help me out.

    Airport can see my wireless network but keeps dropping the signal and basiclly the internet hangs until I switch off airport and turn it back on..

    now Ive been on to tech support advised me to reinstall leopard but prob still exists..

    also noticed that in utilities under the conrol app there was 802 errors logged..

    Been advised to bring to a help center but should I insist on a replacement macbook pro...

    any advice greatly received.....

    The airport problem is probably down to leopard there are god knows how
    many people with the same issue 10.5.2 should resolve this

    The warnings are they SUID?

    Thanks for the reply Neil.
    so its a commom prob do you know if it can be fixed?

    sorry but not sure what SUID is

    there was so many errors lots of time outs and hanging notifications from apps like Itunes and safari and macmail..

    a bit strange its only 2 weeks old and have only used it for surfing the web so far.

    Can you test the laptop with another network - something known to be accessible, like at a Starbucks, bookstore or café? That'll at least help you know if the wireless card in the machine is faulty, or if its a software issue.

    Hi

    No one knows for sure when 10.5.2 will be released,soon i hope as ive the
    same problem,i whoulnt worry about this until its released if your tried with something
    else its leopard

    As for SUID warnings go into disk utility and verify disk permissions if
    there SUID warnings ignore them, run a repair also just to be on the safe side

    have you tried to switch to another channel ?
    I got an issue that was solved by doing so. Not yours and not leopard but worth giving a try.
