I installed the OS X 10.5.2 upgrade yesterday. Shortly after installing it I turned 802.11n back on in my D-Link DIR-655. It is much more stable now, at least so far. In thirty-six hours I have had just one dropped connection. Before the 10.5.2 upgrade I was experiencing dropped connections every few minutes. Unfortunately the 10.5.2 upgrade has caused WiFi problems for many users. It would be easy to blame other manufacturers like D-Link because 802.11n is still draft but many of the problems are with either older 802.11g equipment or with Apple's own Airport Extreme product. And WiFi problems aren't the only problems being reported with 10.5.2. I consider myself lucky to have had a problem free upgrade.
