Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone can help me. I have a macbook which I got three years ago. Often times when others have wifi signal, I don't. Sometimes it will say the wifi host on the airport drop down list, but when I go to connect it says there was an error connecting. Its so frustrating. Anyway, just wondering if anyone had any ideas?

Many thanks for all your help,

I have the same macbook. I also have the same issues with wifi. I think its our airport cards failing. I have a new mini with no wifi problems at all.
