Any MBP owners here having problem with the AirPort? It disconnects itself quite frequently, especially when idle.
At first I thought maybe it shuts down itself to save battery, I thought it's an energy saver feature, but there is no
such option there to turn it off, and I left my computer on all night last night, it didn't disconnect itself.

So, it happens randomly. I never had this problem with my iBook. Any MBP owners here also have this problem?

Mine too. Many times it has disconnected with no reason, even when the powerbook next to it had a stable connection.

no problems here either...actually I have never had a computer connect so easily...especially to some notoriously difficult wi-fi spots.

This is not meant to be a dck comment...just that not all MBP suffer from this. Good Luck.

Change the channel you are using.

It sounds like you are dropping connections due to interference from other networks.

Night = less use by others...

You would have to change the wireless channel using the router's configuration program. What brand of router are you using at the moment?

Here's a tutorial for avoiding dropouts:

If this really is a problem it's probably a result of the MBP using Intel's 802.11a/b/g chipset instead of Broadcom's which all previous Apple products used. I've come to expect dropouts when mixing Atheros, Intersil, Broadcom, Intel, TI, etc. based WiFi technology...
