    What is this thing? I can't even google it since there is really no clear description of what it does at all...

    Basically when I click one my wifi networks, before it used to connect just fine (yesturday) but now when I click it the wifi bar starts to do this thing where it goes up and down from 1 bar to the next (not filling up) and then it doesn't connect to the wifi network, but it connects to my other wifi network, why is that? I can't find any help on this, please help.

    1. System Preferences
    2. Network
    3. Highlight Airport on the left
    4.Click Advanced
    5. It should be on the Airport tab, if not click it
    6. Highlight the SSID in question
    7. Click the minus button to delete
    8. Click OK
    9. Click Apply
    10. Now try to connect to that network again and put in the correct information

    It is likely that the profile for that network is incorrect or corrupt. This should clear that up. If this doesn't work, it may be something else. Just report back.

    Also try resetting your cable modem. I found that if you use bridge mode, Apple waits to get an IP from the DHCP server before lighting full bars.
