    Hello,

    I'm having some weird problems with my wireless on my macbook. It will see the wireless networks, but when I sign on, it says connection failed, or connection timeout. I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.5. If you need information on my computer just ask.

    I'm lost on how to fix this.


    Thanks to everyone in advance.

    Network info (router model, settings, etc.) would be very helpful.

    Uh...I'm not really sure about the type of wireless router my college uses. I don't have a router in my dorm room either.

    Has your macbook been able to connect to other wireless networks (i.e. are you only having problems with your campus's network)?

    It is having problems with all wireless networks. I can't get it to work at my friend's house, on campus, at the local library, the works. This happened after I updated it to OS X 10.5.5. This was happening to my roomate's macbook when he updated to OS X 10.5.4, but was corrected when he updated to 10.5.5. It's kinda like his macbook is spreading a disease.
