Toggle Airport On and Off
Authored by: CHM on May 25, '11 06:23:51AM

Personally, my MacBook's Airport hangs a lot. It's old but I'm not ready to replace it yet. Turning Airport off then on again fixes the problem for a while. Rather than mousing up to the Airport menu bar icon, clicking, mousing down to "Turn Airport Off", clicking, then mouing back up, clicking the Airport icon again, mousing down to Turn Airport On, and clicking one last time, it is way faster to do a keyboard shortcut twice. It's also faster than all the keystrokes needed to do the same via the ctrl-F8 option.
In my case, I just got rid of the part of the script that makes it toggle power and just have the script turn it off and back on again. All by pressing 3 keys, just once.
