My Macbook Pro early 2011 OS X 10.8.2 disconnects like the above images shown above. If I move the mac around it will disconnect faster. It will normally last 10 mins and if I move it will last 1 min before DCing and showing "no network selected". I have brought this problem to the apple store 5 times and they have failed to fix it countless times. Once the no network selected message apepars all the networks would go blank and the airport would turn hollow, disabling the ability to turn it back on; even if you press turn wifi on it just remains hollow. The only way to fix this is by restarting the mac and sometimes it would show wifi no hardware installed so I've basically got a mac that can't use wifi. I've tried all the resets, changing router channels, deleting keychains / kext, DNS servers etc.This is not a home router problem because if I take it to uni the same problem occurs. Also the IP just loses itself and I've tried giving it static IP addresses but these attempts have been futile. The only way to remain connected is through Ethernet cable. Does anyone have a solution for this?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
