My MacBook Pro only gets 2 bars in my bedroom where it always got 4 and now using the internet is like being on 56K modem. It's awful!



    I dropped down my AES's firmware to 7.3.2 from 7.4.1 after a post on Apple's support boards; however, that did nothing for the reception issues. I've restarted, reconfigured and reinstalled any and all software with no improvement. It's been a lot of work for naught; I regret having updated again to 10.5.7 now.



    I for certain can only hope that 10.5.8 works well and comes quickly. 10.5.7 has been a complete failure in my opinion.

    I have had problems with 7.4.1 and backed down to 7.3.2 but it had nothing to do with 10.5.7 - I upgraded to 7.4.1 when I got a message saying it was available - I used it for a very short while (a couple of hours) because it was causing both of my laptops to lose connections (one PB500 running Tiger and a windoze vista Acer). I went back to 7.3.2 and now am back to all bars all the time. I wish Apple would let us know what these updates were supposed to help. A look at the log files while I was at 7.4.1 was not very helpful.

    Interesting as I had that issue with both my wireless mighty mouse and wireless aluminum keyboard prior to 10.5.7. Since the upgrade, I haven't had that problem.

    I am still waiting for that elusive HOME sync feature...



    I reckon a lot of people/homes have more than one Mac, how about either:



    1. a complete sync (super duper style) and incrementals of your hard drive



    2. partial sync (super duper style) and incrementals of your user only



    3. a subset or single folder PLUS your iPhone/iPod profile (as that has iCal, address book and the keys playlists for your media)



    Although this would likely depend on the size of both hard disks, how much you actually want to carry around and the speed you want the sync.



    Of the above I would find option 3 the most user friendly (think consumer... ) and 1 for the power user.. 2 is good if say you share computers..



    Fingers crossed.. although if we see a iTablet (or rebranded Mac"book") with SSD/1.8" drive - by 2010 or when Steve wants to do his first presentation, we may get option 3.

    i swear to god if they dont sort out the Time Capsule issues i'm going to kick some ass.... can't stream video without it lagging (strangely audio doesn't but video does) and Time Capsule randomly just doesn't respond in Finder (however Internet still works)... pretty sure its Tc problem though... as it requires a Hard Reboot (pull plug out).... i'm on 5GHZ N... any suggestions please... can't wait until Snow Leopard and New iPhone 3GS on July 8th x

    I just hope they finally thin out the molasses that they use to run iCal.

    All I know is that 10.5.7 brought back an annoying bug that I had up to 10.5.6. About 70% of the time when my MacBookPro wakes up from sleep, it wakes up in some kind of 800x600 video resolution. I then have to go into System Preferences and set it back to what I had it at. This went away with 10.5.6 but suddenly came back right after 10.5.7.

    I guess integral isn't the most accurate, but I guess what he was trying to say is that Apple has made Time Machine a pretty big thing to push to customers as one of the benefits of Mac OS X and how Apple controls the hardware and software. I'm sure you could accomplish the same thing with Windows but it wouldn't be easy to accomplish as it is with a Mac.

    Have you tried 2.4Ghz N? I could never get 5Ghz working properly - either with Apple's own router or infact any router.
