    Proxy issue
    Greetings, my macbook is having trouble connecting to my wireless internet. It didn't work last night, but finally did after I clicked "automatic proxy configuration" under 'proxies' under Network (in the sys. prefs). For some reason the internet was down again tonight and the same box was unchecked. I checked it, hoping the internet would work, but it didn't. Oddly enough, I'll check the box for 'automatic proxy configuration' and when I go back, it's unchecked. I've restarted, turned the airport off, and even locked the page w/ my password. To no avail, the box unchecks itself. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening? Thanks so much for your help.

    It sounds like your Airport preferences file was corrupted. Delete it at:

    /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.airport.preferences.plist

    I tried this and then restarted. Unfortunately it's still doing the same thing. I also noticed that 'network status' told me that "Airport does not have an IP address". I don't know if that helps. Thanks

    P.S. Honestly, I'm not even sure if that "auto proxy config" box is supposed to be checked. I just know that when I'd checked it last time, the internet worked.

    Well, perhaps the solution posted above actually fixed the problem. I came home today and the box remained checked and the internet works. Thanks so much.
