    I replaced my hard drive due to dropping my ibook (much thanks so this forum for saving me hundreds of dollars!)
    Anyway, I now am experiencing airport problems. I threw away the preferences and downloaded istumbler and see that a neighbor is interferring like never before. (i am like a 37 and he's like 30 and sometimes knocks me off) I don't understand why it's happening now. I am upgrading software but wonder if there is any way to block this guy or if anyone has any other suggestions?
    Thanks in advance
    Brenda
    PS I am using network interference

    you could password protect your network.

    i did that on mine and our network became quite a bit faster.
