    Hello All,

    I think I figured something out today (I haven't seen it posted else where). So I have been having WiFi trouble lately on all channels 2.4N and G, 5.0N. My Wifi would drop come back not reconnect etc... Then I started noticing my bluetooth connection to my keyboard (the metal apple one) drop out. Anyways I turned bluetooth off on my Air and now WiFi is stable, no problems... Maybe just a coincidence so will keep testing.. I would like bluetooth and WiFi to work together stably. Anyways this is for you guys with problems and for me looking for a solution.

    thanks,
    Jameel

    it could be something really simply like a firmware issue with either the MBA or the router. there might be a really good reason as to why it`s not been reported before... cause no-one else has experienced it?

    I use both WIFI and BlueTooth all the time with both my Mac and PC, so far not encountered a single problem. Beside the battery keeps draining away!

    bluetooth and WiFi are different frequencies, it shouldn't be possible.
    I use my MacBook on WiFi all the time along with my Kensington bluetooth mouse.
