apple drops out from wireless network

Tags:
Wireless
Have set up an ADSL service thru LinkSys WAG54 gateway, works perfectly with XP/SP2 PCs, but an Apple laptop of recent model connects but drops out after a few minutes, requiring frequent reconnection action on the user's part. The gateway is using WPA/TSK encryption and the Apple has been configured with the key. Does anyone have any idea why the Apple falls off? (no Newtonian jokes please)

Hi –

I have an actiontech DSLwireless router and my Macbook and Macbook pro’s both stay connected with no issue. I have also taken the MacBook to work and connected to the dlink we have there with no issues. Sounds like either your wireless access is questionable (doubtful), the airport card is turning off (could be faulty). I did find the following: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304482 (referred by: http://www.tuaw.com/2006/10/03/apple-issues-support-doc-for-wonky-airport-performance-on-intel/) Might want to check it out.

    You can try to reconfigure DNS through Advanced option on Mac. Through Mac's network settings you can change DNS & check if that helps. For troubleshoot, please link here for Apple support: https://support.apple.com/en-in/HT202222

    Moreover you can also try this way. You can open Mac's network settings and go to Advanced, next select "Hardware". Change the "Configure" setting from "Automatic" to "Manually." Next change MTU from Standard to Custom. Here you can add a lower value like 1450 into the box & press Enter following by "Okay." Next again try to surf and check the same.

    Most issues with Apple devices dropping off of a local WiFi network back in 2006 have been resolved by driver updates during the past decade. It's hard to be sure if specific instructions for relatively current devices could apply to a system from 12 years ago.
