I have a Mid 2010 MBP 2.4, which has been upgraded with a 120GB SSD and to Lion, otherwise completely as-ordered. However, I've been having W-Fi issues with this thing since I got it. First off, I have to stay at version 10.7(.0) because if I update any farther, I get "Connection timeout occurred" instantly and I can't connect, however, if I stick with 10.7, I can actually connect to my home Wi-Fi network, except it prompts me for my password every single time, and when I enter it, it instantly states 'Connection Failed,' but at the same time, it connects to the network. Is there any way I can fix these two issues? Is it possible that a replacemet AirPort card will remedy the issue? Thanks in advance!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7), 13" 2.4 C2D, 4GB Ram, 120GB SSD

    Did you ever resolve this problem? I have a new MBA and am having a similar issue. For known networks (i.e. the password is in the keychain because I joined them before this bug appeared) I get the "connection timeout occurred" message instantly, but I join the network successfully. For unknown networks I enter the password and instantly get the "Connection failed" message (although the network is joined). However, because the MBA *thinks* the connection has failed it doesn't store the password in the keychain, meaning I have to enter it every time I subsequently connect.
