I had a similar problem
Authored by: bedouin on Nov 17, '03 07:10:22AM

I went over to a friend's house one day and was getting a 100% signal, but Panther was grabbing the wrong IP. He was using a Netgear router, the same I use at home. After I ran the airport setup utility it started working again . . .

Before arriving my iBook was asleep, and was being used at another location wirelessly. I don't know if that had anything to do with it.

I have the same problem with a netgear router. I have connection then I don't. It is really freaking finicky and I was wondering DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET IT TO WORK CONSISTANTLY. Everytime I think I get it working for good, it dies on my and assigns some random ip that has nothing to do with my network or any network for that mater. I assign one manually and the router thinks its cool, but no interenet. I am really fed up with it and apple's support is less than helpful, because they are never open.
