Try a Permissions Repair from Disk Utility and see if that helps?

You could try renaming the preferences file, restarting and allowing the mac to create a new one (as per these instructions: Reset Mac OS X network configuration to factory default; Airport interface disappeared | Steve Jamesson (http://stevejamesson.com/2008/10/01/reset-mac-os-x-network-configuration-factory-default-airport-interface-disappeared/)) and see if that helps. Keep the old prefs file as a backup in case you need to re-instate it.
