    Sitting in a cottage with my cousin who has a macbook and msef have a macbook pro. We are sitting next to each other and she is able to get a signal she found that was open. I myself am not able to connect to it and if it does show up in my airport list, it hangs and then gives me an airport msg. Is this because the MBP casing causes a problem? If so that complete crap.

    ps. Using internet now by her sharing connection through ethernet and its a hassle.

    TIA

    The plastic allows for better connection than the aluminium...one of the few advantages the MB has...

    Yeah, it's probably the casing. Paying extra doesn't exempt the MBP from the laws of physics. :^)

    bump...so even if the wireless network shows up in the airport list, it doesnt connect. So i am confused because only ever so often it connects others not a chance, most of the time.

    Is there some kind a boost app that cn be used with airport. Dont know if there is such a thing but just a thought.
