I have been a regular reader of Geekzone and would appreciate a recommendation from the Geekzone community for a Mac repair.

We have a mid 2009 MacbookPro which does not 'see' any WiFi networks.

It seems to be hardware I have taken the unit apart and physically checked the connectors on the airport, antenna and the cord to the airport. It did briefly work after this so I believe it is a hardware fault and need to take it to a repairer so they can determine which part is faulty and replace it. (Hopefully just a cord....)

Can anyone recommend a reputable repair in Auckland, we are located in St Heliers but can travel anyway within reason.

Thanks, this is the no.1 contender so far and they are certified and seem to do repairs for a number of retailers

If there is an issue with the antenna you are looking at lifting the display with glass as it runs along the edge of the screen.

+1 for  Imagetext

I had my iMac HDD replaced under warrantee there. Super impressed with their professional attitude.
They were quick and took a lot of care to ensure they got it right.

They'll have all my Apple work going forward.

Question for you - did your macbook's fans spin up a lot, hence the need to get them cleaned?  I have the same Macbook and the fans can be loud with with Firefox open.  It may need a trip to Ubertech to.  Can you post back with how the work went?
