    Whenever I try to transfer large files or large amounts of data between my iBook G4 and my iMac core duo via Airport, I get the following error message after a couple of seconds of transfering...

    Next, the transfer stops and the iMac kills the wireless connection. A minute or so later, the wireless reconnects, a couple more MBs are transfered, then I get the error message again.

    Only a couple of mentions on a Google search, and both provide no answers.

    WTF could be causing this?!?! And, yes, I have personal file sharing turned on with both computers.

    I have to use firewire and target disk mode to do the transfers, which is a pain and should be unecessary anyway.

    Help!!!

    Well, I just tried to move a folder of videos about 2.3 gigs worth.

    Single large files won't transfer either.

    Small files generally transfer fine (word files, jpegs, etc...)
