So... after not finding any solution to this problem I am desperate to hear somebody say: no problem, you just gotta do this...

I noticed a few days back that my computer wouldn't have any signal from the airport extreme base while my wife (with her mac book) had one! Only a couple meters away I could get my internet connection.

Now when I start up my MBP sometimes I get a signal that disappears again after a short while, sometimes I don't see the airport status in the menu bar, it can't find any network. Then when I reboot it can sometimes find everything as it used to be, just to disappear after a minute or so...

I didn't change anything in my parameters but I wonder if something is wrong with my airport card?

Did anyone experience similar problems?

well, I read your lines and give a good overview about possibilities where the problem might be. However, nothing really fits for my problem since another computer is running perfectly fine on that network. I will try to go to a mac store today and check it out. Thanks for your help so far though!
