Hello, i have an ibook and an emac both using the airport cards. My ibook has absolutely no problem anywhere in my house. My emac is another story.

Sometimes its good reception and works great, other times it completely drops in signal strength and i dont get anything going. I've tried repositioning my router and my emac several times with minimal results.

Is there a difference between the emac's reception capabilities compared to the ibook?

any info would be greatly appreciated!

thanks!

i've got an albook and a crt imac, and i've seen the same discrepancy in airport strength.

probably has something to do with the positioning of the antenae within the macs, but that's just a guess.

hmm. thanks for the response. I was wondering if it was something like that. Do the crt macs have the antenna going up and down beside the screen inside?

I wonder where they are..
