    Kinda stumped here. I have an Apple router and connected a 1TB external drive to it. Set it up for Time Machine on my MBP and the first backup (and a couple of subsequent backups) went through just fine ove wi-fi.

    It seems like after I upgraded to Snow Leopard, the back ups stopped working. I can see my router in Finder but when I try to connect now, it says connection failed. I can get into the router through the Utility and if I reboot the drive, I can see it on my MBP. I started another backup but it keeps losing network connection.

    Any ideas? Do I need to change some kind of setting on my MBP?

    I believe you just need to restart the router. Unplug everything, and then plug it back, that should get it working.

    Same

    I had the same issue. I do not think that it is a time machine issues, but a WI-FI i connection issue. I solved the connection issue by changing the wireless to 5 mhz and N, and worked ever since.
