comment Macbook cannot see specific wireless network after being connected to it for a while
I'm on the end of my Applecare plan. I'm not sure how it'll go since I'm in Korea right now. I've found an authorized service center that's pretty nice and my wife can translate, so hopefully they'll check it out or at least re-seat the card. I'll report back here after the weekend. Thanks again for the help!

comment Macbook cannot see specific wireless network after being connected to it for a while
Yeah, I guess so. I'll do it on the last day of my warranty, this Saturday :P It's weird because I don't have troubles with any other networks (at least that I know of) and I can see many other networks while this problematic one is invisible to my computer. Thanks so much for the help. I really appreciate you keeping up with this.

Well, I've done everything you recommended aside from re-seating/replacing the card. There are several others with Macbooks in this office. I think one is even the same model as mine. And otherwise my laptop is in tip top shape. I can't get an ethernet port plugged in. And yes, it's just this specific router. Haven't noticed any troubles with any other routers. And as far as I know it was only the channel that changed (from 11, I think) and nothing else. Before that change I was able to connect just fine.

I suspect you mean "reset" and not "reseat" and "AHT" and not "AEHT", right? Let me know if I'm wrong and please explain what you mean in that case. Is there a way I can manually reset my Airport card? I changed the encryption method on the non-problem router and it's been working fine for a couple days now. Thank you for your help in this, I really appreciate it!

I've tried Cocktail, running an extended hardware test, and changing another router to channel 13 all to no avail. My computer is able to connect to the other router just fine. The problem router is encrypted by WPA2 Personal but not the other router I tried. I'll try that soon.

Couldn't this have gone into a comment to Jared's answer?

This is a router in an office about 20 people all with computers connected via wifi to the same router. They are having no problems at all. It's only my computer. And, my computer does connect fine if I clear the system cache and restart. But after a while it has troubles again. Please see my question for more info. Thanks!

comment Safari Tabs like Firefox / Chrome
Why would moving to Safari save battery life? You might try the Chrome Beta for Mac. It's definitely better than Firefox for Mac in terms of performance/possible battery drain.

This seems like a better solution than what I suggested.

comment What is a good (free) VM solution for windows 7
Do you mean the only free VM solution that supports seamless mode? Both Parallels and VMWare support this (but are not free). Also, Parallels, at least, does a better job of it than VirtualBox.

Apparently the 64bit of Safari 4 on Mac OS Snow Leopard has (significantly?) better Javascript performance and it runs plugins in a separate process to allow for 32bit plugins.

Safari 4 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard is 64bit with the plugins running in a separate process to allow for 32bit plugins. I don't know about Safari 4 on Windows, though
