    Hiya guys,

    I'm having a strange issue that I'm hoping you can help me with. I've done as much troubleshooting as I can and I'm at a loss.

    I have a late 2007 15" MBP running OSX 10.6.x. Of late, I am having intermittent connectivity issues when connecting wirelessly. For example, I am almost always able to pull up websites like Apple, Google, and Facebook. Anything else is a crapshoot. Usually I get an error that I am not connected to the Internet when I try to pull up other pages.

    I do not have this problem when I connect via a wired connection or through a UMTS USB stick. Also, wireless works fine when I boot into Windows. So, that leads me to believe that it is a software issue with OSX. I'm just not sure what to do about it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,

    GS

    10.6.3. Sorry, I wanted to include that in the original post, but I was in Windows so didn't have access to it.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the tip, celticpride. I did reinstall the combo, but unfortunately it didn't solve the problem.

    Any other tips?

    Thanks,
