I just moved in to a new apartment building that provides free WiFi. I wasn't terribly impressed with the speed or reception or, well, any of it. Seeing as how it's free, though, I didn't complain. A couple nights ago a friend of mine came over with his Dell Inspiron 8600 and connected to the network: it smoked. I had him check the speed on the CNet Bandwidth Meter - he clocked 6.5 Mbps; the best I got was 227.4 kbps. The network is administered by a local company called ETS. I contacted them about adjusting settings and what not to fix it. The rep from the compnay just said that "MACs" (His writing, not mine) have wireless connectivity issues and the best I can do is to buy a supplementary antenna, and talk to Apple directly. Seems like bad customer service to me, but seeing as they seem to know jack-shizzle about Macs, I doubt I'd get far with them. Using the PowerBook in my profile. Anyone have any ideas on how to improve my connection? Or would it be possible to use an AirPort Express to improve the signal? ANY suggestions are appreciated.
