My mac (macbook pro 17", mountain lion 10.8.2) is having wireless issues, where it shuts down my wireless connection and I can't bring it up again unless I reboot. The wifi menu bar icon (diamond wifi symbol) does not react to anything I do.

In console the WLAN adapter PCIE config space was not restored (stateNumber = 2) message appears. When searching google, the only hits I get are my own posts on apple discussion and mac rumors. Super User is the last place I can think of to ask and be reasonably sure to get an answer.

At first I thought it was a hardware issue, but under windows (bootcamp) it works and I haven't been able to reproduce the problem under windows.

Also, can I make my wlan adapter not restore config space from PCIE?

Tried that, your post was the last solution I tried. The problem still persists, I still would like to know what the above message means. Google didn't result in any answers (at least not meaningful to me) – bing Jan 6 '13 at 13:30
