Late 2008 Alumninum Macbook,

OS X 10.8.4, 2.4 GHz, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3


Wireless internet inexplicably drops out.  I have done all sorts fixes and diagnostics.  Nothing seems to fix this problem with my macbook except pulling the plug on the router and plugging it back in.



I'm still having internet connection issues. I'm really at a loss of what to do now. Literally the only thing that seems to fix the problem when the internet drops out is to reset the router. Another macbook and 2 iphones use the network flawlessly even when my late 08 macbook drops out. I have done a lot of different things to try and fix it and none of them work. I included some old threads and I think I documented the steps I took, that didn't fix it.

I can't find a common thread for anything. It seems to be totally at random. I have done a few items. But no fix is permanent. My internet also its extremely slow and then I move it literally 12 inches in a different direction and its fine. Not sure if that's a whole other problem.

Well perfect example I can't even connect to internet right now. My airport says its full service, diagnostic saids its fine. No pages will load. If i let it sit EVENTUALLY it will tell me there's no wifi connection, and my router timed out. So off to reset it again...2nd time today. 1st was w/o even turning computer on all day.


I am leaning to this being a hardware issue.  I just have no idea what to do.  I've done all sorts of things.  Is there anywhere I can get this checked out.  I am out of warranty.  I thought I could wait for the new OS update then bring it to the apple store to see if I can get it examined.
