Question about Computers & Internet
The first choice for AirPort Extreme base stations in this instance is to look at the firmware. Generally, using the most recent firmware version is the preference, but in some cases actually going to an older version may increase stability. Launch the AirPort Extreme Admin Utility (in Applications/Utilities); then select the appropriate Base Station in the left-hand pane. The firmware version currently installed will appear on the right-hand side.
The current version is at least 5.7. However, many folks have corrected dropout issues with their AirPort Extremes by reverting to Version 5.5.1. This link will take you to the download page for 5.5.1. Download the file, and then use the Updater application to install it. A caution in this approach is that you may lose some features that perhaps you had been using, but the rate of success for this approach is significant. You can revert back to your current version (be sure to write it down before you change it) if you wish.
NOTE that you MUST be sure that you are working with the firmware for the AirPort Extreme, and NOT the firmware for the AirPort Express. They are not the same.
Hope that's helpful.
