OS X 10.5.7 has a wireless problem?

We're on the latest round of OS X (10.5.7) and Airport Extreme (old, flying saucer model) fixes and something's gone downhill

No real mention on Google, so it's probably something with our older setup (Airport Extreme saucer station, Airport Express WiFi extender, 802.11g/b).

What we see is my MacBook on awake from sleep takes a while to get a connection, then it loses it, then it gets a lower power connection (maybe one of the stations) then it gets a full power connection.

Not lethal, but very annoying.

I am having the exact same problem with the same setup. Ever since upgrading to 10.5.7 my wifi has been going funky and the signal strength keeps dropping in and out. No idea why.

I'm having this as well, there's no connectivity for several minutes. If I go to Network Diagnostics and force the issue by re-signing into my wifi networking, everything works fine and starts quickly. But it's quite tedious to do this every time one wakes up the machine.
