One way to prevent dropped network connections
Authored by: pbm on Dec 16, '06 03:53:19PM

I've had my mbp for 5 weeks. I was having the same network dropped problems as described. I have an old ibook clam shell and an iMac. The other computers worked fine, but the mbp had problems. I found on the net to try changing the channel your hub uses. I have an airport extreme. I tried most of the channels, recorded the ping time to the hub and dropped packet count. There was a huge difference. I chose the channel with the best results. The mbp hasn't dropped a connection yet in 3 weeks. The same article said you might not want to pick a channel next to one your neighbors may be using...it could affect you.
