could you please provide the Router model(s) you are trying to connect to, the authentication method (WEP or WPA ... quickly if it is WEP change your router to WPA / WPA2 accordingly)
Wifi channel it is set to ?... try 11 if possible turn off automatic ...
As well confirm protocol on router for both 802.11 b and g mode ... not one or the other .
Trendnet TEW-634GRU, Linksys WRT-160NL and other.
Authentication is WPA Personal, but I tried disable it completely.
Wi-fi Channel set to 6, but I also tried to change it to another.
And my another MacBook pro mid 2010 shows me about 6-7 wi-fi networks...But subj macbook shows only one...
Hello I think that you may have MAC auth issues and it should be WPA2 - try changing on Mac re:
In System Preferences, remove the network if it's remembered. You'll need to go to Network, Airport, Advanced, and then find it in the list, and hit the little minus. Now try connecting. I've seen networks that were set to WPA2 come up as WPA-Personal, since the laptop sometimes has trouble figuring it out.
For these, I've had to set them up manually, by going into the system preferences, network, airport, advanced. Add a new network (plus at the bottom), put in the name EXACTLY, and the password, and WPA2-Personal.
You can also try to change the wifi protocol on the router to b only and see if that helps... if you think that it will slow down your network etc you can improve network functionality by using a better DNS server, I use the following software to find the best DNS server in the area: namebench
Hope this helps.
