Hi folks, writing this from my phone so apologies for poor spelling, structure and the like.

I have had my macbook for two years now. The entry level white one. it's been near enough faultless minus a couple of small issues.

Recently I have had serious problems connecting to the internet. It's always been fine at home on our bt homehub but I recently came to Australia and it did not connect in Glasgow, Heathrow or Sydney airports, not even to the connection screen you normally get for bt openzone.

Now I am in Australia and it wont connect to the belkin router at the house where I am staying. My phone connects fine but not the Mac.

I'm 4 hours from a Mac store and despite airport apparently being on I'm still lost.

Help! Diagnostics is no help at all.

Cheers, stu.

I assume that you have Airport turned on.

What are your Network settings? (/System Preferences/Network/Airport)
