    woah, sucks.

    have you tried restarting?

    Have you tried resetting the PMU?

    the 2 things I try, which I have no idea if they were bad to do repeatedly, is reset the PMU by holding down [ apple+option+P+R ] before the apple logo appears in the boot sequence, it will start to boot and then restart (and I think beep?) (and the startup sound will default to full volume) before the circle starts spinning and restart the boot sequence.

    This normally solves my problems.... if not, I turn off the computer, and hold down the power button till it beeps.

    When you go to the airport menu icon that is on the upper menu bar next to the date and time, are you selecting "turn airport on"? If so, does the icon remain the same with an outline only, or does it have a grayed out series of lines?

    Try going to network preferences, which is an option when you click on the airport menu icon saying "open network preferences," and try turning airport on from there (you first select the airport icon on the left side of the network preference window).

    grayed out WiFi signal only means that you are not connected to any network. If your WiFi card is not on, then you will see a hollowed out triangle icon.

    Open up your network and see if are connected to any of the wifi networks.

    Are you sure the icon just didn't disappear?

    System Preferences > Network > Show Airport Status in Menu Bar
