As good as Apple’s hardware and Mac OS X has become, some gremlins remain.
An article over at MacMerc points out a bug involving MacBook Pro laptops in which the user experiences a kernel panic while attempting to use their built-in AirPort wireless cards.
The current workarounds are to either attach an Ethernet cable to the MacBook Pro or use the WiFi function while using the AC adapter, neither solution doesn’t really help that whole “portability” thing that people tend to buy a laptop for.
Currently, no statement regarding the problem has been made by Apple and a release date for a fix has yet to be announced.
If you’ve seen this on your end or have any thoughts, ideas, fixes or workarounds, let us know in the forums.
