    What does the Airport menu say? I would try going to System Prefs-->Network and deleting the Airport configuration (hit the little '-' sign), then add it back. If that does not work, delete all configurations in Network prefs, then add them all back, with Airport being last.

    I had a powerbook before and the airport card came lose in the computer, just reseated the plug and good to go, not sure where the airport card is on the macbook, the airport card was next to the battery, you can't even get on to your neighbors is that right?
