I recently had to send in my Macbook to Apple for a replacement hard drive. After I got it back, it was already at 10.4.10. I have not yet upgraded to 10.4.11 (the software update version of this in November killed the already-failing hard drive). My original install disks are from March (prior to 10.4.10). Problem: within the last 7-10 days, I cannot stay connected to my wireless router but I CAN stay connected to my neighbor's unprotected network. I have a Linksys WRT54G router with a WEP 64-bit password. I can actually connect with my Macbook to my router but the connection will stop working after about 7-9 minutes. Airport status drops a bar and it says I'm connected but nothing works. And, in fact, the router itself is then frozen. I have to unplug the modem, and plug it back in. Then, I'm good for another 7-9 minutes! Needless to say, I'm using my neighbor's network 99% of the time. In fact, the connection will drop from my neighbor's network as well but I just select his network again and I'm back up and running. I have a desktop Dell PC (6 years old with XP), PS3, Wii and Tivo hooked up wirelessly. Not one of them makes the router freeze; my ex-h is here on his Dell laptop connecting just fine. We could use all of them at the same time and the router will not mess up. But, add in the Macbook and that's it. Time to reset the router yet again. The problems started after I updated via Software Update: the Airport Extreme Update 2007-004. Is there a known issue with this particular Airport update? How do I go back or get rid of that update? Is that possible? Should I just bite the bullet and do yet another erase and install of my OS with the install disks (I have done that more times than I can count due to hard drive issues, which were resolved when Apple replaced the hard drive)? What do I do? I'm a Mac newbie (yes, a switcher!) and the transition has been sorely lacking. I love my Macbook and am just SO sad that I can't rely on it for my main computing! I've read lots of tips for troubleshooting this (here on these forums and elsewhere): I've changed MANY settings on the router. I've tried changing the router to unprotected. I've disabled IPv6. Still no luck; connection drops after 7 minutes. HELP!
