Today, out of nowhere, the wireless internet on my MacBook Air 13" stopped working. Whenever I attempt to join the network and enter the password, it gives me "Connection Timeout." I've made sure that no other network options are available (e.g. Ethernet could be enabled and have higher priority than Airport, which would cause the Airport to defer to the non-working Ethernet). I restarted my laptop and did the Command-Option-P-R thing, deleted the Keychain entry for this network, manually entered the normal and hex versions of the password (WPA-Personal), and am currently posting from my Windows computer which is less than three feet away from my connectile dysfunctional MacBook Air.
MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.6), Second Generation
