    I just started having this issue today. Basically my wireless just dies spontaneous; all connections halt. I can't turn it on in the menu nor the system pref. I have admin so that's not an issue.

    The only way I can fix it is restarting the computer. I've done all the usually resets, permission repairs, hardware tests.

    Can anyone provide some assistance?

    Regards.

    Does the console report anything?

    Have you noticed specific actions causing it? specific software or even moving the machine?

    Did you check to see if it was under System Profiler?

    Just as I'm browsing the internet, it just dies all of a sunden. Like I said, I checked console, but it looks like this could be it. It happened right before I lost my wireless:

    Code:
    10/2/08 Thu · Oct 2 @ 9:31:13 PM	kernel	WLC_E_COUNTRY_CODE_CHANGED	
    10/2/08 Thu · Oct 2 @ 9:31:13 PM	kernel	en1: 802.11d country code set to 'X0'.	
    10/2/08 Thu · Oct 2 @ 9:31:13 PM	kernel	en1: Supported channels 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 36 40 44 48 52 56 60 64 100 104 108 112 116 120 124 128 132 136 140 149 153 157 161 165 40 48 56 64 104 112 120 128 136 153 161 36 44 52 60

    I hope it's not the wireless card that died because I hate to lose my computer for a few days so they can replace my card…

    I'm confused what this would accomplish…

    EDIT: I see what you mean; I'll check to see if the card is still in Profiler next time it happens.

    i would think they would be able to just drop in a new card, maybe take 30 minutes

    Well I made an appointment for tonight.

    I'm running the extended AHT on it right now. It's getting worse, it's causing kernel panics during boot now. :mad: I think everything is failing now. I'm backing up everything.
