    Once i wake the computer up.. it's shows no signal at all and never picks one up. The only way to fix it is to turn the computer off and reboot. Restarting doesn't have the same effect. Any ideas?

    Is it a MacBook or a MacBook Pro? Are you running with all the updates? What sort of security do you have on the network and in the Network pane of System Preferences, is your AirPort set to join networks automatically or only preferred networks?

    There was a problem with Intel laptops and 10.4.8 which was similar to yours. It was remedied by selecting to join only preferred networks, clear the list, restart and re-add your network to the list. You can then change it to Automatic if you please.

    The computer is a C2D MacBook Pro running current updates. There is no security on the network and i've turned everything off on the MBP. I've set AirPort to preferred networks.

    I'll try clearing the list and restarting again. I've done it once but... who knows.. maybe it wil work this time.

    Occasionally my Macbook won't connect to my network when I wake it up. Usually all I have to do is turn the Airport off and back on again, and it will reconnect.
