we have a modem and a router and an older dell laptop all of which work just fine for going on line. for the past 9 months the mac book pro also worked fine with the same modem and router. in the last few weeks the mac doesn't recognize our network. how to get it to recognize our network?

Ok.

Run 'Software update' on your MBP and if you can enter your router's settings do a firmware update on that.

Next power down the modem and router (unplug the cables completely).

On your MBP quit all your apps, go to Disk Utility in Applications, choose your hard drive (Macintosh HD) and run 'Repair Disk Permissions' let it run it's course then shut the machine down.

Re-connect and power up your modem and router first and then start up your MBP.

If it doesn't automatically see the network you will have to choose it by clicking on the wi-fi icon on the menu bar. Let's see what happens then because there are other things we can look at if the problem persists.

That's all well and good advice . . . . . but any news on the slippers?
