Continuing Wireless Problems with 15"MBP

I have yet to find a real solution for my problem.



I have a horrible wireless connection in my house, but it's fine everywhere else. I've used the internet in my local Apple Store, and at my school today - flawless. I come home, connect to our network (broadcast through an Airport Extreme Base Station) and I get maybe a few seconds and then nothing (I monitor this via a ping).



For whatever reason (I can't really explain it because in both cases it was like dumb luck), I've been able to maintain a stable connection twice. I don't really know what I did - I tried many things, mostly using Network Diagnostics with Ethernet plugged in, then unplugged running the diagnostic, combinations like that.



In both cases, when I turned my computer off and then back on, the problems came back.



It has to be something with my network, but I don't know what it could be because my previous generation 15" MBP and 24" iMac are connected fine - it's just my new 15" MBP.



Any idea or possible solutions? I'll probably bring my computer in on Friday and have them look at it over the weekend.



I've tried re-setting the AEBS to its default settings and making a new network from scratch. I've changed the channel from Automatic and then gone through the 1-13 channels. I've switched from 2.4Ghz b/g/n to 5Ghz n-only frequencies. I've turned on interference robustness whenever able. I've turned off my security (WPA2 password) to see if that was the problem. Nothing.



It seems like a network problem because my computer can connect to other wireless networks easily. That doesn't explain why all my other computers can connect flawlessly to the network, and my computer is singled out - which indicates a problem with my computer.



Any ideas?

    Sorry, but can't think of a solution. Let us all know what the genius tells you at the Apple Store.



    Good luck.
