Does the Airport icon appear in the menu bar and what happens when you manually turn it on? Helps if you include your OS. If Leopard or Tiger, can you access System Prefences and see what happens when you select Airport and hit the 'Turn Airport On' button?

It does not appear in the menu nor can I turn it on manually as System Preferances says its not installed. I have OSX 10.4.11.
