    I already posted this a couple of months ago, but this issue is still there and driving me crazy. My TimeCapsule drops the WiFi signal every 10 minutes or so for about 10 seconds; the light is blinking yellow during that time, and then it comes back to everything ok.
    The TC is in Bridge Mode behind my router. I can connect to the internet via the router all the time - no connection lags there, it's just the TimeCapsule that stops the connection. No entries in it's logs, though.
    I'm running 10.6.2, and the TimeCapsule is on 7.4.2 (same issue on 7.3.2 and 7.4.1).

    I would appreciate any ideas very, very much. As it is, it basically kills iChat and Skype on top of it's impact on web browsing and the like.

    can you hardwire to the TC via ethernet, and wait for it to drop, and see what airport utility says?
