Should I send this thing back?! Is it like the RAM thing? The silent dier....??
Here's the issue I've been trying to fix practically from day one (could have been with the new firmware/software update...to long to remember)
I put my powerbook to sleep...then wake it up (next day, or hours later) and THE INTERNET CONNECTION IS DEAD! Yet my internet meter is reading full, and the little checkmark is ticked next to my wireless connection name.
It's very frustrating.
What I was doing before was keeping a sharp object right next to the airport so I could (constantly) reset the thing.
Now I have put the Airport Admin Utility in my dock (that's how much I freaking use it) so that I can reset from there.
(I also resorted to actually sticking the cable plug into my computer....HENCE making the WIRELESS airport extreme completely useless. And it worked perfectly ALL the time with the cable plugged in. So I know it's not my card or the cable companies fault)
Once I reset it's fine....until I put it to sleep...or sometimes after I restart the computer (after an install or something).
I've read all the freaking database things on apple and they just say reset it. Well you know what I say apple??!?! FIX THE PROBLEM BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!
ok. I've vented.
Anyway. What I wanted to know was does anyone else have this problem? And if so, did they fix it, and HOW??
OR should I send the thing back?!?
At what point do you know it's faulty?!
(Not only that but when I take my laptop to school...we have wireless internet there....I've had NO problems...works like a charm....I open my computer from sleep, log on...and I'm off and running.)
Other than that my system is working BEAUTIFULLY and I'm SO happy with my new computer
p.s. my printer never works hooked up to airport exreme either. It's a canon s9000 and last night I painfully installed all of the drivers and software etc....and it worked. Then I tested it this morning after the computer being asleep..you guessed it. nothing. It will GO to print...and the print center will SAY it's printing. But it's not. It can't fool me.
