I just got a new Airport card and Airport Express today and was very excited about not having to string along a 70ft ethernet cable everywhere I go in my apartment with my iBook. But I'm having a major problem with the AE range. I am currently sitting about six or seven feet away from the AE and my airport meter is fluxuating between two and three marks. How can this be?? The range is quoted at 50ft for the AE but I lose my connection at less than 20ft. I wouldn't think there would be any interference issues as the AE is plugged into a power outlet that is between my computer desk and a display cabinet, with nearly two feet between the two. Do you think I just got a bad Airport Express? Or could I have a faulty Airport Extreme card? Any and all suggestions and opinions are greatly appreciated. I really want to go back to being excited for this product. Thanks!
