    I have my Airport Extreme on default settings. Whenever I use Vista via Boot Camp (on Macbook Pro), I lose internet connection (but not the connection to my Airport Extreme -- I can still connect via Airport Utility to change settings) every few hours. I have to restart the Airport Extreme or my Macbook Pro to get it working again. I have a feeling this might be related to the DHCP release every 4 hours. Does anyone know how I can change my settings so that I don't get these disconnections?

    Thanks for an help!

    did you correctly install the driver for wireless card for vista? it should be provided by apple in bootcamp. I think.

    Yes, I have Boot Camp 2.1 drivers, along with whatever updates Apple Update showed. Besides, I get the same problem even while connected via an Ethernet cable instead of wireless, so I don't think it's a wireless card issue.
