Is the WBR-1310 the only model that has this problem? I found out today that we need to order more routers, so I have a good opportunity to switch.

Thanks

Fatman-

Ive come across a solution of changing the beacon settings on the router from 100 to a lower 20-50 range.  Before I tried changing it I was just curious on your input.

thanks

frostyarcade,

I don't believe that it will be that simple, but I wouldn't stay your hand in trying anything that you have reason to believe might help.  Tell us how it works for you.

Well after changing the wireless channel to one unused in my area (by using istumbler to see) I have had "better" results. I went a week without drop outs but then ran into one (after being on my macbook for an extended time) last night  :'(.  It was rather disappointing, but I will soon try the beacon settings experiment and post back when I see how that works!

Sweet!!! I'm getting married this week and then am honeymooning so I won't be able to check it out for myself for a couple weeks. Can't wait to see if it does!

I will be updating just as soon as I can get it to download.

Best of luck, on both fronts.

I have the same issue.

I am using WBR-1310 and MBP. Especially after I turn off my MBP for couple of hours and after I turn on my MBP, it just can't get ip from my router.

My router is using DHCP and it is B2 version with firmware update 2.02.

The only way to make it work is to restart the router.

I hope you guys can figure it out. Thanks!

That actually sounds like a different problem, as far as I am aware we have not been discussing someone who can't pull DHCP.
