No, I did not and do not have a router behind a router - I'm using the provider Uverse 2Wire unit.
I was previously using a new Linksys router successfully before Uverse. And the Macbook connects seamlessly to other wireless networks and publich wifi locations as well.
Thanks for your help though.

I really like the performance of the television portion of the Uverse service. The internet service however is lacking in that I keep getting a dropped signal. That's not acceptable. I didn't like TimeWarner's television service, but I must say that their internet signal was always working.
Uverse technical support is useless.
I most sincerely regret having made the change from TimeWarner to Uverse.
My family was right - I should have stayed with TW.
I've always heard that DSL based systems are like herding cats to get it to work right. I should have listened. I so regret it. My system worked fine before.

Civil? Really? could have fooled me...obviously I'm not entitled to an opinion. You have no comparison to make. Yes you (you, as an individual, not DSL customers as a whole) are having an issue, but your statement about DSL as a whole is simply baseless info that you picked from a RR larkey somewhere along the way.
It's my opinion based upon repeated calls to tech services, and performance by comparison to RR that I make the comment that I regret moving from TW to Uverse. Hogrunr, it's MY opinion and I'm entitled to it. Your contribution to this conversation is meaningless. There was no ranting or blah blah blah.
Again, I'm entitled to my opinion and this entire thread is about dropping a internet connection on a Macbook. It's a specific issue.
Try not to taunt people. This is a civil conversation thread.

Hi, I read this thread because I am interested in switching from Time Warner to Uverse and you really scared me! I have a Mac Mini w/ plans to get a Macbook someday (in short-I'm a mac person). Most of the thread discussion is WAAAAY over my head, but in the last post, it looks like your issue is resolved. Is it still? I am really afraid to make the switch if there are going to be technical issues because of my Mac preference. What do you think? The reason I want to make the switch is so I can get the sports package, which will enable me to see my Los Angeles Dodger baseball w/o having to subscribe to that darned Extra Innings thing on TWC, which is dreadful. When my internet connection goes out now, for whatever reason, I can't live w/o my internet, and have to do whatever I can to get it back up, short of all of the super-technical stuff that was discussed in this thread. So what do you think, Uverse good? Uverse bad? Thanks for any input!
