    Network Diagnostic
    Just bought my 1st Macbook (1st Mac in fact).
    Having one little problem with the wireless section.
    I did search the forum, but didn't find anything.
    Ok, here's the thing, everytime I start/reboot the Mac, the internet will not be able to connect automatically, I have to use the Network Diagnostic to get it to work. No biggy, 5-6 more clicks, but would like to solve this...

    All my other systems (windows xp) connects just fine. Even the blackberry having no trouble.
    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    2x 2.4GHz MBP. 1x old school Mac Mini.
    Congrats on the great purchase!

    Just to clarfy: If you click on the airport icon in the menu bar:
    1. Does the network show up there?
    2. If so, what happens when you click on it?

    The my network does show, but when I click on my own network to attempt to connect, I get a "connection time out"
    So, the only way to connect is through Safari's Network Diagnostic...

    Same exact problem.
    Yes i have the same exact problem as you. I have not figured it out yet. When I run diagnostic it asks for the password and i enter it. then it tries to connect and says that it was not able to connect to network even tho it does connect to it. its weird. Please help.

    I'd recommend reading the Wireless Networking FAQ. Even though it might not seem to be specific to your problems, the general guidelines outlined in that FAQ will resolve a number of issues, including the inability to automatically reconnect to a wireless network.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
