    Hi,

    Today the IT department at my university set up my Early 2008 MBP to work with the library wifi. While doing this they completely messed up my airport settings so now I cannot connect to my home network. Is there anyway I can reset the network settings to default like they way they were before? I am running Snow Leopard.

    Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Go to Library>Preferences>System Configuration and remove com.apple.airport.preferences.plist

    Thanks for the quick reply. I moved that file to the trash but still no joy. In network preferences it says "airport does not have an IP address and cannot connect to the internet".

    Any other ideas?

    Go into Airport's advanced settings and remove the networks listed in the box, go into Keychain Access and remove all networks (check all things in left sidebar) and turn airport off, then on. Try that.

    Got it now. I moved the whole System Configuration folder to the trash, then did a restart and it was back like new.

    Thanks for the help celticpride678.
