    Out of nowhere, the Air lost the airport card.

    Did a quick search, realized that is a rather common problem.
    Tried the usual resetting and etc, didn't work.
    Thinking maybe it's a hardware failure, I was about to take the back cover off and re-secure the airport card.
    Before I got the chance to do so, the airport worked after a random restart.
    It lost it again after another restart.

    Question is:
    If the airport showed up once, does it mean it's longer a hardware issue?
    If its software issue, what's the fix? I really don't want to bother with reinstalling OS.
