Re: Wireless Connection Keeps Dropping
Some generic solutions for WiFi dropping out may include: 1. Use of static IP addresses for the clients (in your case the 2 Sony VPL-CX86s) rather than auto obtain; 2. Disable the WEP/WPA security; 3. Set MAC filter in your router and include MAC addresses of the 2 projectors; 4. Try raising the height/position of the router; and/or 5. use an aftermarket high gain antenna for the router.
As a reminder, WiFi works by line of sight (LOS), anything in between will reduce signal strength/coverage and that include people around/near the projector unknowingly blocking the router.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

try reseating the wireless card or airport card. if that doesnt work. turn off your wireless router and your macbook. leave off for 10 mins then turn on the router first then macbook. try to connect and see if that fixes the problem.
CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.
LOSING WIRELESS CONNECTION Make sure the latestwireless card driver is installed in the computer.Locate the wireless routerhigher and away from concrete and brick walls, foil-insulated walls. Locate the wireless routeraway from cordless phones and microwave ovens these can cause interference.You could be gettinginterference from other wireless access points or wireless routers in yourarea. Check the wireless broadcast channels in your area, and select one thatis unused or one that has the weakest signal strength.
This is a massive and expensive network, which appears to require a full signal and configuration audit. It's quite possible that many of your problems are stemming from the APs you have already deployed being situated in suboptimal and conflicting locations, which is an issue with three-dimensional wireless networks.
I really don't see your problems being debugged by anyone short of an experienced on-site wireless network technician. I'm saying this as a person who tuns a one-man company serving two rural communities with wireless internet service.
Can't seem to find the manual on it but.... Most DSL/Routers have a connection setting in them with 2 settings. 1) On demand (Connects to internet as needed) 2) Always on (Stays connected to the internet)
Trednets are know to do this if you have another wireless component close or next to the device. Do you have any 2.4ghz phones? Cell phones? Other wireless devices? If you have not tried yet, Try switching the channel on the access point.
If its not a channel issue, try getting new firmware and test the signal strenth with a wireless sniffer such as Net Stumbler
