I have a 27" iMac (OS X 10.6.4) which has suddenly developed a heap of networking issues.

It's dropping in and out all of the time and seems to get confused about whether it's connected or not.

Is this an issue I can fix or just a 'Mac' thing? My 6 other Windows PCs (and my iPhone) all work with the WiFi no problem.

If your PCs and iPhone are working, it would make sense that it's the local machine. If you insert your OS X install disc, you can try to connect to the wireless network from within the install CD (on the menu bar; don't know if the Snow Leopard install disc still has that feature or not). You could always try performing an archive & install, which would almost certainly rectify the problem if it's a software problem. If either of those fail, then it's a hardware problem, and I would take it in to a local Apple Store, or call Applecare.

Just to clairify, I'm almost certain the Snow Leopard install disk has the wireless menu bar item. – Wuffers Mar 27 '11 at 14:19
