Several days ago I performed a clean installation of Snow Leopard on my MacBook White (late 2009). As usual, everything works marvelous - except for the wireless connection to the internet.

It keeps dropping the connection after several seconds. If I restart AirPort it works for several seconds, then it drops it again.

I played with the settings of AirPort and discovered, that every time the connection drops (I click on a link and the browser seems to load forever and nothing happens) I just have to refresh the "DHCP-Lease" (under TCP/IP) and the browser fires again.

Does someone know what is wrong here?

Thanks for any help.

To get rid of this annoying problem I am thinking about reinstalling Snow Leopard again, but it would be more comfortable not to have to do that, since it is tedious.
