Total stab in the dark, but at some point a few weeks ago my MBP  
started seeing my Wifi only very intermittently (and it's an Airport  
Base...). It would work just fine and then all of a sudden lose it  
completely — you could only make it come back by telling it the name  
of the network and re-entering all details by hand. For a short while  
I almost felt that the Windows Wifi experience (in which you have to  
confirm your 16 character password by typing it a second time — wtf?)  
was better but some tweaking brought this up: the AP was set to G  
only and interference robustness was off. My MBP supports G and IR is  
probably overkill where I am, but changing both of those to B/G and  
On sorted it.
