    I just received a new mid 2010 macbook in today and I started to set it up, but I wasn't able to connect to my wifi when first setting it up. I skipped the internet connection part but now I can't find anyway to connect to my wifi. There isn't a wifi icon on my status bar either. Many thanks for the help.

    Hmm, that doesn't sound too promising. I'd start by chancing an SMC/PRAM reset and see if that makes a positive difference.

    You can also check System Information (Apple menu, hold Alt, 'About this Mac' will change), then see if Wi-Fi shows any detected hardware under Network.

    I've tried both of those and I don't think they worked.

    This is all under the System Report > Network > Wifi

    What I have is:

    CoreWLAN: 4.3.3 (433.48) CoreWLANKit 3.3.2 (332.36) Menu Extra: 9.3.2 (932.35) System Information: 9.0 (900.8) IO80211 Family: 6.4 (640.36) Diagnostics: 3.0 (300.40) AirPort Utility: 6.3.2 (632.3)

    Buy a $5 USB wifi dongle from Amazon so you can download software to troubleshoot, and to make it work until you can figure out how to fix the internal radio.
