Since I added a Airport Extreme to my Netgear Network, I have had troubles with the Netgear WIFI network dropping out. It seems that there is some contention with the Airport Wireless and the Netgear Wireless, and the Apple Wireless always seems to trump it (even thought the Airport is wired directly to the wireless router). It does not happen all the time, but it can happen 3-4 times a day and could be quite annoying. My reasoning for adding the Airport was for the time machine backups of my Apple devices. It makes things quite convenient to have this available on my wireless network (which the Netgear cannot provide). Anyone have a clue, aside from disabling the Airport, the best way to avoid this contention? Only thing I can think of is to reposition my Airport to another room...but that would involve me running a new Cat-5 cable through a few walls to do so. Any ideas would be great. Regards, casalepete
