I've got a MBP 3,1 which I just updated to 10.7.3 through Software Update with the hopes that the wifi updates would fix my waking from sleep issues. However, upon restarting when I click on the wifi icon it shows in grey text "Wi-Fi No hardware installed". Now I can't use wifi at all!
I've since tried downloading the combo updater and ran that and it didn't fix it.

I've also done the usual PRAM and PMU resets to no avail.

 

In my system profiler I see this under PCI Cards:

 

pci168c,24:

 

  Type:          Other Network Controller

  Driver Installed:          No

  MSI:          No

  Bus:          PCI

  Slot:          PCI Slot 5

  Vendor ID:          0x168c

  Device ID:          0x0024

  Subsystem Vendor ID:          0x106b

  Subsystem ID:          0x0087

  Revision ID:          0x0001

  Link Width:          x1

  Link Speed:          2.5 GT/s

 

This looks like it would be my airport card, but it has no driver?

 

Any ideas?

    I have exactly the same situation. Occasionally I get wifi - once yesterday but most of the time it's no bars, no hardware and I can't turn it on.

     

    MacBook Pro running 10.7.3. It's a disaster for me. I had to hurry home with a 16 hour drive to use my wired iMac.

    I used to have the same situation on 10.7.0.

     

    Perhaps are you connecting your mac to any HDMI port thru the video port? Try disconnectring it and rebooting.

     

    Hope it helps.

    Before that happened I used to see a progress bar below the Apple logo while starting the iMac.

    Nope, I don't have HDMI on my MBP, nor a progress bar on start up.

    Hmmm.  I've got the 17" MBP 3,1 running 10.7.3 and I don't seem to be having any issues using wifi on my system.  I did have the sleep problem sometime back around 10.7.1 or 10.7.2 but I learned from someone that by turning off the feature to allow bluetooth devices to wake my computer, my sleep was restored, I just checked and my MBP even sleeps without that little "hack".

     

    If your system is telling you that you don't have the hardware, it is possible that your internal wifi NIC had gone bad, or may have a bad connection.  I remember that the bluetooth connector can easily come out if you aren't carefule, but I don't remember much about the wifi hardware in my system...

    I have a iMac 20" 2.4GHz 2007. Was working perfectly fine before the Lion 10.7.3 update. Now I have the same issue. I tried restarting the mac with everything unplugged (mouse, keyboard, etc) still nothing.

     

    Someone please find a solution as Apple obviously never admit to any faults and aren't helping.

     

    Thanks

    Geekboy,

    My sleep problem was different, I was having a problem reconnecting to wifi after wake, not staying asleep.

     

    Also, I don't think it likely for the card to die right then. I had just downloaded the update over wifi just fine!

    well, I'm going to try downloading the Client Combo and reinstalling it to see if it helps. Wish me luck

    Just reinstalled 10.7.3 using the Client Combo, but the issue still exists.

    Did you ever swap out the card and have a new third party card installed on this machine ? Paste some of the kernel.log info. right after a restart and that can help identify what is happening. You can get to the kernel.log from the Console app.

    The wifi card is the original stock card, I have never replaced it. I have replaced my HDD and RAM though, but I doubt that would be an issue.

    Something wrong with AirPort I see... the driver perhaps?

    Looks pretty similar to roflcoxib's.

    Okay I've got the wifi finally working by downgrading the AirPort driver to that of Snow Leopard.

     

    Just follow this post: https://discussions.apple.com/message/15780717#15780717

    Download the KextUtility+ the Snow Leopard .kext, linked in that post.

     

    Drag & Drop the .kext file onto the Kext Utility, then restart your mac.

     

    Hope it all goes well!

    roflcoxib,

    I installed that SL hack on 10.7.2 and when I upgraded to 10.7.3, it broke my WiFi. I had to do a clean install and then upgrade to 10.7.3 to get my wifi working again.

    Anyone else did that SL hack on earlier 10.7.x versions ? I think that breaks your WiFi.
