    Across the top of the OSX screen where you usually see the day/time, volume, bluetooth status etc, my airport icon has disappeared. I always go up there (naturally) to change networks depending on where I'm at and it has totally disappeared. This happened after I reset my airport configuration due to unknown errors. I haven't been able to find a way to bring it back though. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

    Have you checked the "Show Airport status in Menu bar" box is still ticked in the Network System Prefs?

    I'm not at my PB, but if I remember right, go to Sys Prefs, Network, select Airport, and the display status icon checkbox should be in one of the tabs. Otherwise, just go to Sys Prefs and type airport status icon into the search box, spotlight should hightlight the right Pref item.

    Airport icon missing

    What if there is no airport in the network list. Have done a hardware check and all ok. Have reinstalled Mac Os and still not showing. Any ideas anyone.

    Has it ever been there? Maybe you don't have an airport card?

    Airport indicator

    Well I think I do have one. I can go into airport utility and connect to my time capsule wirelessly and do backups. I thought the i7s came standard with the airport card built in anyhow. Any help would be appreciated as it is off 2000km to the nearest apple repairer tomorrow.
