    Missing WiFi interface?
    Hi, and thanks in advance from a new member.

    MacPro Duel Core Intel Xeon 2.66
    running 10.5.8
    3 gb ram

    I've recently "lost" my wifi configuration from my network preferences. I may or may not have somehow deleted it, but it no longer shows up in the interface for services.

    I was running a usb wireless lan card as I don't have an airport card. It worked fine till I "lost" it.

    Any ideas on how to get it back?
    Should I reinstall Leopard?
    I'm currently burning a Lion Install disk (just put it on my MacBook), should I just wait and install that?

    TIA,
    Cliff

    First, I would make sure the LAN card didn't die. Do you have access to another that you can substitute? And, it's probably not a good idea to install Lion until you get everything else worked out. Also, you want to make sure all your hardware is supported in Lion. Might be a good idea to have an Airport card on hand just in case.

    Do all your other USB devices work and did you try another USB port.

    Did you make a change or add an app in other words trying to retrace your steps to what may have coincided with the loss of wireless.
