comment Mac Book Air 13" (2011) - Wifi continuosly disconnecting
Juan, I'm not as familiar with the wifi spectrum in Europe but my experience could still help. In my answer below, my wife's MBA was using channel 1 from our access point. I changed it to 6 and the issue went away. If that fails to resolve the issue, try channel 11 if available. The idea is to switch it away to a less congested frequency.

comment Trouble creating new Exchange Server account in Lion
Hi @durd I was stumped too and the genius at the apple store did some things with my mac and autodiscovery resumed. In mail.app, I added an account, choose exchange and it prompted me in sequence for login, password and domain. It went on to verify the account and I was all set.

This is for my exchange account. In my setup I have Gmail and exchange. In either one, I can get info and change the color.

comment Why don't accepted event invitations through MS Exchange show up in iCal?
I have a similar workflow but I added the exchange server to iCal. My accepted invites now appear in iCal.

comment How do I sync Gmail contacts with my iMac's address book and my iPhone?
The link in @cedrich answer outlines a way to move iSync into Lion. I like this tip since I currently use iSync in SL to sync my address book with Gmail contacts and will need a solution if I move to Lion. Here's another article with comments on this issue. macosliontips.com/news/…

The genius bar figured out how to enable auto discovery to work and now it prompted for the login, password and domain that my company's server required. Thanks to those who posted comments @Eir Nym

comment iPhone plays podcasts in seemingly random order
I agree with @mipadi. The 1X feature in your screenshot appears only if a podcast is playing. Back out of the podcast and navigate to albums>all songs to play a song. when a song is playing, you'll see controls to turn shuttle off and on or play a song in a loop.

comment How do I move my iPhone contacts to Gmail?
There's a way to do this from your iMac. Can you gain remote access to your iMac or work with someone who could access it?

comment iPod Equalizer issue
What happens when you set equalizer to POP? Does the sound change? Are you playing music converted from a CD? If yes, what import settings did you use?

comment iPhoto Library Size Doubled when Synced with iPad
Just to confirm a point, you still have 22,000 pictures and a larger database as opposed to 44,000 pictures and a larger database?

comment Trouble creating new Exchange Server account in Lion
When I manually add the same server info from our other Macs, the outgoing message fails. The only accounts that send and receive are the ones that were created using auto setup including the domain. I haven't checked the console log but I will.

comment Why aren't some of my songs transferring to my new iPhone?
I just re-downloaded a song I purchased which appeared under "All" and was already in my Library and it worked. I now have a fresh version in my Library. Try it with one or two of yours and see if that resolves the puzzle.

comment Problem with malicious Traffic in my MacBook
In addition to cksum's questions, are you wireless or wired to your router? I agree with looking at the DHCP list of all connected clients.

comment MacBook pro unresponsive / slow after startup
Can you try two things and share the response with us? If you're on wifi, turn wifi off and reboot. Does the MBP response improve? Can you run the hardware test to see if anything is acting up? This would tell us if anything is failing. Instructions on how to do it are in Apple's knowledge base article HT1509. Thanks.

comment Limit Spotlight to mail
I agree with Macaco. I've adjusted Spotlight to only index documents, folders, mail, contacts, applications and PDFs. My MDS is 0% at the moment.
