Well, I have a Mac OS X version 10.6.8, and everything was working completely fine until my Internet stopped working so I checked what was going on and it states that I have no airport installed...And coincidentally, a day ago, one side of my hinges broke but everything was fine until today and I don't know If that involves with the issue. Help? Please?

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Has your laptop, whatever version it may be, had a drop, been bumped or had liquid spilled on it? What does Apple System Profiler say about Wi-Fi?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Go to the Apple micon in the menu bar > About This Mac > More Info > System Report > Wi-Fi and see what is reported.
