Default WLAN Card/Wifi (Airport) Undetected? - 03-21-2009, 10:38 PM

Okay so my dell mini finally came today, and I had sent it to my grandmas house as she is home most of the time and it had been safest for delivery.

I set up the computer that was preloaded with ubuntu, everything went smooth pretty much.

I was able to get a scrap of wifi from someone in the same apartment as her and then i lost it. i assumed it was just a lousy connection.

However after i got home and hackintoshed it, and the OS X install is great and working amazing.
HOWEVER, many times the wifi either turns off after about 5 minutes and clicking turn airport on does nothing, or even worse it doesnt work at the startup and said "No airport device detected"

Could i have a faulty wifi card? Dell will probably replace this, unless it is a software problem, i reinstalled OS X a couple times and theres no noticeable difference. I will try to install windows 7 later but i dont really want to. And yes ive tried to reinstall the dellefi and what not but to no avail.

Any Ideas?
