    Boot from the restore DVD and see whether the card shows as available. If so, a re-install of OSX will sort out the problem. Otherwise it's back to the Apple Store for a replacement.

    You should still be able to ask for a replacement. It isn't that old.

    Update:
    My AirPort Card was dead and although it has been a little over the 14 days the local Apple Store has agreed to replace the computer for a new one ..
    I will be saying phew after it has happened which should be tomorrow.

    Well done. Sucks that it happened, but at least you have the right outcome.

    Good News :D
    I picked up my brand new replacement iMac from the store and it appears to be great .. I am so happy and hugely relieved .. All the people I dealt with at Apple were extremely nice and helpful .. Thank you again for your support !!

    P.s.
    I think the first one was simply a lemon considering all the problems it had.

    That's one reason this PC geek bought an iMac...the customer service.
