Mac users are reporting a number of problems with their wireless connections after updating to Leopard, according to traffic on Apple’s support forums.
Users writing in a long thread — as of 3 p.m. EDT it boasted more than 120 messages — described one issue as a steadily degrading wireless link from their upgraded Macs.
“When you connect to your wireless network, your transmit rate will be 54 (if you’re using the 54g standard),” said someone identified as nunofgs. “If you start up a download or something that occupies your bandwidth (even LAN traffic), you will notice that the transmit rate drops to 11, then to 3, then to 1 until finally your downloads will drop, your iChat connections will fail and your browser will not load pages.”
