So I got back the Eee1001HA from my wife, as she doesn´t need it no more.

I had 10.6.6 running on it flawlessly back then, but I put XP on it for her and did not keep a backup. :(

No problem, install it again, I thought.

Of course I had exchanged the WLAN for a AR9285 when I had OSX running on it.

Now 10.6.6 is up and running again but Airport Extreme behaves rather strange.

First Airport could not find my WLAN at all, even if I changed to "b" only. (SSID is transmitted from router.)

I switched to my trusty Ralink stick, configured it and found that Airport would see my network too out of a sudden.

As it is, I can use Airport, but the connection drops every two minutes and comes alive again.

I am using this NetworkingFamily:

and this IO80211:

Does anybody recall how to get a reliable Airport?

Maybe I am missing something or forgot.

Any thoughts?

BTW, my old T-Com router had to be exchanged, as a thunderstorm took the switch some time ago.
