I just bought a MBP 13 inch in August '09 and Ive been experiencing consistent dropped internet connections wherever I go. I'm in college right now, and I have wireless internet at my dorm and my connection keeps dropping randomly and the only way I can reconnect is by turning on and off Airport. I just went home today and Im experiencing the same scenario with my Home Wireless Network connection. Anyone know whats going on or how I can fix this?
Really Appreciate it!

All of my network problems were fixed at the 10.5.7 Leopard update, and by upgrading to an N spec router at home. At school, I do have dropped connections, but it's the school's rotten network because it happens to both Mac and PC machines.

I thought that might be part of the problem. Also, I seem to recall a problem involving Cisco Systems networks (popular on college campuses) and Snow Leopard.
