    I have an early 2008 white macbook and the last year my macbooks airport keeps disconnecting from the internet. It doesn't even tell me that it has. Te airport status in the menu bar shows full signal but i go into system preferences and it says it's not connected. I've tried resetting the smc with no luck. It's getting frustrating as I have to restart my computer to get it to work again and even then sometimes that doesn't work. It's also getting more frequent. I hope you can help me as I can't afford to get it fixed.

    thanks

    Jamie

    Try a local coffee shop. See if it works there.

    I've tried a number of different internet connections and the same in each place.

    Resetting the SMC is not likely to fix Airport issues. Try creating a new network location. Otherwise, you probably have a bad Airport card.
