Airport Issues

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Hey all, I got a weird problem with my airport. I have a Aztech Wireless router HW550-3G, I have setup a home network with 2 PC's and my Macbook. The issue in my mac is that each time I stop using internet or the computer goes into sleep, I have to turn off airport and then turn on to access internet, I have the same issue to access files over the network. I initially thought it was a problem with the router so I upgraded the firmware of the router. It didn't help, My friends tried out their iPhones and it worked without any problems. I don't have another mac to try out. Is there any solution within the Mac to resolve this?

The Best Answer

You could try deleting the Airport from Network preference pane, and then using the "+" symbol to create a new one and start from scratch (i.e. putting in the wireless password again, etc.). You may have to delete your network from your list of preferred networks as well for this to work properly.
If that doesn't work, try creating a fresh user account and test it there. That way you will be able to find out whether the issue applies to the entire Mac OS or just one user profile.
