The wireless light comes on but it doesn't pick up anything, I always use the same spot and it always has a connection for me to use. I'm not sure what to do anymore does anyone have any ideas on what I should do?

Apple uses airport for its wireless connection, how ever the device where you want to connect to should have the wireless feature embeded to it or you should have a wireless router to distribute the wireless signal, if you are using just a modem which doesn't have capability of distributing wireless signals, the Apple airport will surely not work for it requires a modem to connect to. you need to get a router and connect it in your modem so the Apple will work for wireless as well.
Make sure that your wireless adapter is enabled and your wireless radio is turned on (sometimes on a laptop there is a small switch that can accident ly be turned off). Also ensure that your wireless router is on and functioning (I am assuming you are trying to access a home network and not a wireless hot spot somewhere).
If you have another wireless device try that to see if you are picking up anything.
you can, but it depends on the wireless standard that the hot spot is using. if the wireless network that you are connecting to only uses a standard, you will not be able to connect. newer wirless routers uses a/b/g and draft n standard for their wireless.
Sometimes the wireless card will pick up any signal it finds, like your neighbors..go into control panel and network connections and take a look if there are other signals being picked up. If so there will be more than one connection showing. Click on your connection and that should set it to automatically always connect to yours and not someone else's...if the wirelss card was not functioning then you would not get any signal at all...finally try starting your laptop next to your router and see if that works better, there may be some interference in the house not allowing you to get a strong signal..good luck.

Most routers especially the smaller ones do not have anything that resembles good ventilation.If you touch the router and its anything more than luke warn then its pretty clear that your router is overheating and unless you take a few steps could be at risk of being damaged beyond repair. My suggestion is to make sure its standing in a position where minimal router surface touches anything else.Also keep it away from your monitor, pc, desktop and anything else that produces heat. If it keeps randomly shutting off i would even recommend a small fan or a replacement. that said I am assuming its not your service provider.
maybe. do you have internet connection in your house? if so the wireless adapter should pick up the signal. i myself have xbox 360 live and use a wireless adapter. It also might just be your adapter. lots of people use the ethernet cables that came free with the xbox and plug them into a modem. connection is more fullproof then wireless.
