    Hello there,

    Many times, I am hooked to flaky wireless networks that keep on losing connectivity to my MBP although signal stays ok. Is there a small application out there that would be able to do what I do manually, namely power-cycling AirPort off and back on whenever transfer speed goes down to zero for more than a few seconds? Adjustable for timeouts if possible?

    bash script that pings every _timeinterval_ and if t>100ms then ifconfig en1 down sleep 2 ifconfig en1 up ? :) ( or wget to some server and if download takes longer than (some time it takes normally) then ifconfig en1 down sleep 2 ifconfig en1 up ...)
