I have (had) various Macs running Leopard and seem to have a continuing problem where I lose connection to the internet. The problem lasts no more than 10-30 seconds when it all comes back until the next time, which can be anywhere between 1 minute and 1 hour. This issue has continued in two different houses with different modems and with several different Extreme/Express set-ups. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

What is your current router setup? Encryption? Channel? DHCP renewal? I'll try to help, and the more details, the better.

Thanks for the reply but I've fixed the issue by changing the modem..... Not sure why or how but I'm now using DreyTek with the same set up as before and lo and behold we stay online. Now all I need is to understand why my download speed is less than my ISP (Demon) claim it is!
