I have a 2010 white MacBook running OSX 10.8.2 and last week rather randomly it became unstable.  The fan runs nearly constantly and intermittently it does not recognize the WiFi adpater on start-up and has to be rebooted.  Also sometimes after 15-20 minutes of use internet connection is lost.  The WiFi adpater is still connected to the LAN, and recognizes other devices on my network, but cannot connect to any local device or the internet (Mail, Safari, or Chrome).


Any ideas?

MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
