Hi Everyone,


I have a MBP and a IMac.


My MBP is working fine so no problems there.


However, with my iMac which is newer than the pro, im having a problem with.


The Wifi has decided not to work. When I press to turn Airport on, nothing happens.


It says "No Airport Card Installed" in the status bar.


What should i do?


It was working fine last time we used it.

    It says "No Airport Card Installed" in the status bar.

    There are 2 main reasons for this message:


    1) The AirPort card has failed and will need to be replaced


    2) The AirPort card is not making good electrical contact with the card socket


    In either case, this is a job for a service shop, so you should take it to an Apple Store....if you have one in your area....or contact Apple Support directly for instructions.
