Run Disk Utility and repair permissions. If that doesn't fix it, go into Network Preferences and run through diagnostics there (Apple has how to's). I don't know if the Hardware Test detects bad airport cards, but you might try. Sometimes electronics go bad.... it may mean a trip to the Genius Bar. Good luck!
My friend you are not the only one, there are many online complaining about this problem and apple is not doing something about it. Tried all but now it is about 2 months that I have no WIFI.
Very bad reputation for apple, MBA without WIFI is useless, 1 USB port: use it for ethernet or external disk ?
Can anyone please solve this problem?
Many thanks to all of you who are trying to help.
Ok, this is getting weird. I was looking online for similar problems and someone suggested going into network preferences, advanced, TCP/IP and turning Configure IPv6 off. I did this and the internet worked! It was back to how it used to be!
That is until an hour later, when it couldn't find the network again!! Grr
Is that at all consistent with a faulty or broken Airport card?
Thanks for the replies too, I am about to try them now.
What wireless are you trying to connect to? You might want to see using istumbler if there are neighboring wi-fi's on the same channel. If you select the airport at the top of the screen (right) do you see other networks? Somebody could have moved in nextdoor... also check to see if your wi-fi router has any firmware updates.
