    My macbook(10.5) suddenly dropped my wifi connection last night. I clicked the airport tab in the menu bar and noticed all the available networks (mine and neighbors) are all there, but they are spelled wrong. For instance, my network is called "iRizout" but is showing up as "iRizowt". "Linskys" is showing up as "Linsk{s". So on and so forth. I cannot connect to any of them. My old ibook and PMg5 both work fine. I've tried restarting and nothing. Any ideas???

    Reset PRAM, Comman-Option-P-R on boot until you hear a second chime.

    Tried resetting Pram - nothing. This is driving me crazy. I can't find a single reference to this anywhere online.

    This happens to me sometimes, i just turn off my Macbook, then turn off the router and wait a few minutes, turn it on and then turn my macbook on and it connects automatically and works fine.
