Macbook Airport Problems

My macbook occasionally loses wireless connection, unless I reconnect it manualy, it won't reconnect.

Two questions -
A – Way does it keep losing the connection?
B – Why doesn't it reconnect automatically when the signal is back?

    I have the same set of problems with a macbook that until a couple of days ago worked flawlessly with the wireless network. I have reset the airport box back to factory presets and reconfigured it. The home PC and iphone work perfectly since the reconfigure but the macbook remains seriously flakey. I have reached the limit of my knowledge on wireless networks and may be forced to ask apple for help!

You should check to see if you have the connection set to static or to scan. Your computer could be set to scan, and so when it recieves a stronger signal, even if it is for a second, it will disconnect from the signal you have current. You can go to system preferences , select NETWORK, go to show, then AIRPORT, make sure your signal of choice is at the top of the list.

Apple Macbook Pro does not connect to wireless network


The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.

Swapping MacBook Screens


As long as the lcd cable connects to the new screen it should work just fine. Just power it on before putting all the screws back to make sure.

In regards to the wireless I don't understand the question completely. The 2006 will probably only have two wires...just make sure they go where the white and black ones did. You'll just lose a lot of the "N" network strength.

Hopefully that answers you questions. If not, let me know.

Airport connection says Connection Timed Out.


I don't think this is a problem with your macbook, it is probably a problem with the wireless router that is broadcasting the connection. Try restarting the router and connecting then.

Could not connect to campus wifi through leopard


You may need to access the network with the ASCII password. Is there a system administrator you can contact to get this code? It will be a very long string of characters and replaces the typical password you seen in many Airport type setups.

Macbook airport


you should try a software update first along with a PRAM and SMC update (hold the power button down when the computer is off for 15 seconds-it will beep. immediately after that hold down the Apple, option, P and R keys simultaneously until the computer reboots and chimes 3 times)
