    Since you already re-installed the operating system, I would recommend that you start by running the Apple Hardware Test on your Mac mini to rule out that the built-in AirPort Extreme card is not faulty.

    i have tried every thing and still cannot get on the internet,i think it is because i keep booting into safe mode,i had put in a sudo command to boot to safe mode and then i re-installed snow leopard but it still boots into safe mode,i just tried the sudo command sudo nvram boot -args = " "

    but i got the error nvram:error (-1) getting variable - 'boot'

    any ideas please?

    thank you.
