After reading through what is now 25 pages of the Apple support discussion forum it would seem to me that there could be a couple of things going on, which may explain the intermittant and variable nature of many of the reports.....could it be the combination of N-mode diversity of Wi-Fi, 2.4-GHz versus 5-GHz wireless LAN carrier operation, an aluminum casing and a couple of antennas that is causing the problem. RF experts feel free to chime in.
