    I have a SRMB now with a Linksys wireless router. I have no connection problems. I am interested in the time capsule, but I see a lot of people complaining about wireless drops in their MB and MBPs. It seems to me that they are often using an Apple wireless router. So, I am looking for feedback via this poll, to gauge if the issue is the MB or if it's the router.

    EDIT: I think I didn't label the poll well. I mean "Yes" = I experience network drops, "No" = I don't experience network drops.

    At home I use an AEBS. It is rock solid and I get no wireless drops.

    I also use my macbook at my gf's house. Over there they use a d-link router. My computer is the only one that disconnects. Their windows laptops all work fine. A while back it worked great when they weren't using an type of security. After I started dating her and bringing my laptop over I had told them to turn on the security (they are not computer gurus). As soon as I helped them turn on the WPA2, my computer started having issues. For the sake of security I would rather have issues than ask them to go back to an unsecured network. I was hoping that 10.5.2 would fix the issues but that wasn't the case. Looks like I'll be waiting for 10.5.3 (hopefully then and not some later update).

    When I first brought it home two days ago, it couldn't connect to the wireless. I tried it at the coffee place outside my college the next day, worked fine. Updated OS X to 10.5.2 and went home, and it now connects flawlessly.

    I'm using a non-apple router.

    At home I do not have Wireless drops with my MB. When I'm on the go it depends on the locations. In locations where I had no issues with my previouse iBook G4 I now have issues. So I votet for Yes, no Apple Router.
