    Ever since the last update 10.4.9 my MBP won't recognize a new hotspot.
    I used to be able to open her up at a hotel or starbucks and bam it's there. Now it takes literally like 4-5 min to find it, then it seems to work fine.

    I tried to reset my library/prefs but that didn't seem to fix anything.
    Anyone else have this issue, or have a solution? Thanks

    That's weird; I don't have that problem at all. I think you should contact apple.

    Download iStumbler and see you can see any networks with that. Maybe it's just the inbuilt airport browser that's playing up.

    I have never had an issue. If I was experiencing your problems, I think I would completely blow-away all of the configurations, set everything back to vanilla default, and rebuild your stacks. It does not take much work and removes a lot of guessing. Do you have both wired, and wireless settings?

    I only plug into a wired connection when that's all a hotel has to offer. I don't remember ever changing any settings on my wireless card.

    It has been acting up ever since m upgrading to "N" but works totally fine at home. Strange.
