    I just got my MBP a week ago and everything is great expect, that safari always shows the "Not connected to the internet" or the one that says it cant connect to the servers of the page, and i have to turn Airport on and off so it can work again.. this also happens to my friend she has a Macbook, does anyone know how to fix it?

    thanks :)

    Used to happen to my all the time with my White MacBook. My MBP doesn't do it though. I'm guessing it is an issue with the wifi chipset. I even bought a AirPort Extreme to see if it was a compatibility issue but nothing solved it.

    If you can replicate the issue at the Genius Bar then you might be able to get a replacement but I never tried that.

    I got it from best buy. I was thinking about it but i have all my setup already, it took hours and i don't wanna do t again. Since it happened to my friend i tough it was common.

    It doesn't matter if you got it from Best Buy or Apple or any other authorized retailer if it is under a year old you still get full support from Apple and two years if you bought Apple Care.

    It may just be the recent updates. I've had problems with my connection timing as well...
