    Hi there. I just bought a new 15', 2.2 ghZ, MBP. I have been reading about the wi-fi issues and have encountered it myself today.
    Here's my particular problem: When I try to connect I get a "connection timeout" error and cannot connect.
    I have tried all the tricks: service order, new network location, etc.
    Here's what I have observed which may help to explain what's happening.

    I live in an apt. building where there are at least 4 wide open networks. Wide open meaning no security, no password. My MBP will connect flawlessly w/ all these networks but when I try to connect to my own, which is password protected, I get the connection timeout.

    Obviously my solution is to leave my network completely open, with no password. Well, this is a ****** situation and I don't like it.

    I'm hoping Apple fixes this in 10.4 and soon!
    Hoping this post will add to the already overwhelming discussion of this problem. I haven't seen anyone else mention anything about the problem being password related. Maybe this will help sort it out.

    Thanx

    Thank you for giving me this link. The patch fixed my wifi issues with my iMac after the latest lion update. Works great ... again.

    Thanks.
