    I'm troubleshooting a friend's MacBook Pro. She cannot connection to wireless networks - either the Airport dialog reports that the "Connection timed out" or it will connect and not receive a DHCP ip.

    I've reset the SMC, repaired disk permissions, every combination of rebooting the computer/router on a couple different networks, checked for updates, removed all remembered networks, cleared the keychain of all stored airport passwords, etc. I was just about ready to declare that the Airport card was dead and hope that my local Apple Store carried a new one, but I had another idea. I plugged in an Ubuntu live cd, and it connected to the wifi just fine. I'm left to assume its something in OS X?

    Any suggestions?

    Connection Timed Out Macbook Pro

    Suddenly my daughter's Macbook Pro (O/S X) would not connect (after a year of trouble free access) to our wireless network. After trying several suggested fixes I went into my router's (Netgear N600) basic wireless setting and changed the channel to "auto" on the first band.
