    This is all over the these forums.

    The rest 10.6.x Airport:

    1. Turn off Airport!
    2. Navigate to the folder /YourHardDrive/Users/YouUserName//Library/Preferences/ and open the folder SystemConfiguration and delete the items in this folder.
    3. Immediately Reboot!!! This so OS X will rebuild those files upon restart.
    4. Upon the restart open System Preferences->Network, Airport and Re-Add your wireless network settings. THEN click the "Apply" button to SAVE this new Setting!

    Try this to see if it works.
