So this problem started yesterday, I have a Macbook Pro, I can tell you specs if you need any. But the problem is that the airport randomly shuts off and the symbol on the top bar is just the outline and inside is completely blank. The only way to get it to start working again is by restarting the laptop then it works for 1-30 minutes and then stops working again. I have no clue how to fix this problem or make it work. I've seen others have this problem, but is there any way to fix this problem yet, what should I do??

Is airport shutting down or just losing the connection? There's a difference. What you described sounds like you're losing the connection rather than airport shutting down altogether.

If it is the airport card itself that's intermittent, it will have to be replaced. Is your machine under warranty?

Regards.
