    I'm out of town visiting my daughter - got here last night and had no problem connecting to her wireless internet connection at her house from the mac partition of my 17" MPB. This morning everything was allright - I put the computer to sleep and when I came back two hours later, I was unable to connect to her wireless connect. But, when I go into bootcamp and use windows I'm able to connect. What's going on?
    On the mac partition I'm prompted "do you want to connect...." and when I say yes - then I short while later "unable to connect.." "retry" or "cancel" - when I click "retry" - it comes back with "unable to connect..."

    Try turning off your airport and turning it back on. If that doesn't work try powering off the router and powering it back on.
