    So every so often after i open my laptop up my wireless will work initially but then all the sudden will stop working. All I have to do is turn off airport and turn it back on and it works again... anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

    I've noticed that every Macbook I've had has dropped its wireless, no matter what network I'm on. It's pretty aggravating and I'd like to blame the Broadcom card. But I have just god-awful luck with Macs, it could be that, too.

    open system preferences

    remove you wireless connection and re-add it as airport.

    this should fix that issue.

    Other posts have recommended making sure that your most frequently used wireless connections are toward the top of the list of connections.

    If not, it could be indicative of bad hardware..

    Good luck.
