    My airport symbol on the top right bar continually animates as if it is searching/connecting (screenshot attached) even though I am successfully connected to the wireless net at my uni. This only ever occurs with the wireless connection here.

    Does anyone know why this occurring and how I might stop it?

    EDIT: Macbook Pro late 2011, OSX 10.9.4

    There might be some kind of error with your disk. Go to Disk Utility and analyze you disk permissions and the internal disk itself to see if it needs to be repaired.

    Thank you for the response. I did the suggested but no repair was necessary. Any other tips?

    Whilst the recommended thread concerns a different issue, accessing and playing around with the network options (as they discuss) seemed to fix it. Thank you for the help guys.

    ----------

    I spoke to soon... The animation is back and playing again. Under network preferences it states that it's 'authenticating' (with a spinning wheel indicating that it's attempting to do so). I presume this is what is causing the Airport animation to continually play. This is odd considering I am connected to the network and not experiencing any disruptions to my connection.

    Any ideas on how to finalise the authentication so that the animation stops?

    Have you tried just deleting the network from your known networks and adding again?

    Have you tried the 10.9.5 update and seen if still happening?

    Your best bet is to restore your OS at this point. Restore by holding Command-R at start up.
