    I have a Mac Mini that I've been using as a Media Centre for some time now; the problem I have is that every time I try to use it the wifi has dropped out but also I cannot connect the bluetooth trackpad. As I don't have a USB mouse or keyboard I cannot use screenshare, trackpad or my iPad remote app.

    Is there any logs that I can look at to find out what is happening because this is an expensive paperweight at the minute.

    Thanks in advance.
    Dave.

    Dave,

    I don't know if you're plan on coming back here again, but the first step is to hold down the option key, click on wifi in the upper right hand corner of the screen, and select open wireless diagnostics. Follow the prompts and let us know what you get. Remember, you must hold down the option key when clicking on the wireless symbol, and generating a report takes time.

    Find a cheap USB keyboard, and keep that around...

    True.. and they can each be $5 generics that you keep in the closet.
