I am having problems maintaining a constant wireless U-verse internet connection using both my MacBook and iMac computers. However, my PC notebook maintains a steady wireless internet connection. I have the Max internet connection from U-verse.
The Airport icon in the top right hand side of the screen disappears for 30-60 seconds before restoring the U-verse connection. This problems occurs on both the MacBook and iMac. It occurs every 30 minutes or so.
Has anybody else experienced this problem using a Mac? Is it related to the WPA password not being held by the Mac constantly?
I currently resolve the problem either by waiting 30-60 seconds or I click the Airport icon in the top right hand side of the screen, choose the U-verse wireless connection from the drop-down list (the U-verse wireless service appears each time in the list) and then the internet connection is restored.
Very strange given that the PC notebook does not encounter any problems. I even installed a small wireless signal strength application on the PC to check that the wireless is not dropping out. I have not noticed it drop out yet.

Thank you very much for your suggestion. Unfortunately for me this did not solve the issue. The issue remains.

We have two laptops (MacBook & iBook G4) that we use on our Wireless here in the house. I've tried the channel changing thing and I just changed the IPv6 to disabled. So I shall see if that helps. For me, this has not always been a problem. When we first got U-Verse, we had no problems what-so-ever. But after I've had it up and running for a couple months, things are weird. The wireless signal will just disappear. Then, I will see it listed in my networks and I will click on it and can get a couple pages, then I get kicked out again. This will happen a few times then things will go back to normal.
I thought it might have been that the RG just needed a reboot/rest. So, I had unplugged it and left it as such for about ten minutes. Then, I got it back up and running and it was OK for about a couple hours then it started the thing again. I'm not sure what's going on. I've never had problems with prior Wireless connections in the past. I've used my laptop on a Linksys WRT54G with no problems and a Buffalo AirStation with no problems also. I just take it with a grain of salt for right now.
Perhaps it really is just interference. There are like 15 different 2WIRExxx connections listed as networks I can get on, not to mention the typical "linksys" choice. Maybe the RG shouldn't be set on such a high power as a default?
I'm out of ideas, I'll just keep tweaking and see if I ever figure it out.
