    It seems that the airport card is the culprit ...

    Have you done anything to it recently?

    No,
    I have never done anything to it. I believe this airport card was installed with the computer when I purchased it. I have also been told that my 2wire599 router might be the issue, but I have gotten this error when I am working at other places, not just at home.

    Any suggestions...

    I really dont think a router can cause a KP, maybe the airport card is going bad.

    So, should I remove or just turn off Airport to check this?
    Do you have any suggestions on how to check that this is the problem?
    (Too bad I am an online instructor:mad:)
