    I have a macbook I got it like 3 months ago.

    I'm having a issue with the wireless connection :(

    the computer loose connection with the router every 15 mins or so.

    to repair it I had to go an turn the airport off close safari. turn the airport on and reopen safari

    is really annoying :mad:

    I have try using Firefox and is the same.

    I was thinking that was my router ( d-link DIR-655 N router) but I have the same issue when I'm connected to the school network or any other network.

    what can I do???

    thanks :)

    update your software to the latest level and check if the problem goes away.

    Reset the PMU. The next step would be to repair permissions.

    Hi, yea my brand new macbook has the same issues, a little more frequent though i must say, literally every new page i load! can i ask whether you are able to send files to the macbook over bluetooth from a mobile phone, i have tried several phones and non work... maybe the problem is linked??

    Its definitely not my router or network because i have other laptops that don't suffer from this problem, i think it is a leopard issue because it doesnt seem to be as bad on Windows ( bootcamp )

    Anyway... check the bluetooth :) :)

    Several threads on this on Apple forums. Might try iStumbler or similar, set it to ping your router every 15 seconds or so; may or may not work for you, that's just one of many solutions offered in those MacBook--Internet Networking threads.
