    My wireless used to work throughout my whole apartment. It's a small one bedroom...then one day it only worked while I was in the room with the router close to my router. This also happens at my parent's house, my boyfriend's house, at coffee shops etc....everyone elses computer gets access just fine but mine cannot even see the access point.

    Any one have any idea what happened or how to fix it? It's very limiting....Thanks to anyone who can help!!!

    Was your Macbook repaired or opened recently? The Airport antennas could have come disconnected or the Airport card could be dying. Take it to an Apple Store and they should fix it or replace it.
