You have to make sure you sudo it, and on occasion it has failed for me as well. Does a kextload fail as well? Make sure you are doing the AppleAIrport2.kext (not appleairport.kext)
Sometimes it fails on a first attempt but succeeds on a second, or vice versa.

I find it weird that a kextunload would fail, especially if it's run from sudo.. if you have root enabled, can you type login, login to root, and execute it there? Or does it also fail there?

I always get a kextunload failed, even when I try to just disable it
after 'normal' use. Very odd....

the airport hardware is disabled, or whatever is happening, I've just
opened up the terminal, cd'd to /system/library/extensions/ and typin in a
sudo kextunload and then a sudo kextload for the appleairport2.kext
driver, and it's back to normal.

However, when I just killed it then trying to script it for one-button starting (used "disable airport" rather than "stop airport"), the above fix didn't work at all. kextunload just says it failed. --
