    Have you tried simply resetting your modem and then your router? There should be a small button on back of the modem that can be pushed in with a pen point that will reset the modem. Then, with the modem connected, simply unplug your router and then plug it back in after about 3 minutes. I had a problem with wifi shortly after getting my new AirPort Extreme - turns out all I needed to do was reset the router (unplugging it would not have helped as it has a standby battery).

    Hey Buddy! You're not alone! There are hundreds of people who have this problem, and the first conclusion they rush to is that it's their computer. Sometimes it may be, I'm not telling you to skip steps, btu just to let you know that it's not right to jump to conclusions. I think that this issue fits your criteria. Please read the support articles that Linc Davis Provided.

    I was reading and trying all those stuff and finally i solved is my story:


    Moved into a new house with a new wireless router which was 150 Mbps.... I was using iOS 10.6.8 on my iMac (i am on wrong thread, i know) and had that exclamation mark constantly.. i tried everything including iOS upgrade to 10.8.4 but nothing worked out... so i decided to give a try to my old wireless router which is 300Mbps and it worked like a joke.. all good now, so before getting mad please check your router Mbps too..
