If I am right near the router, works fine. As I move away it soons drops to 1 bar and the connection really is not there. I have a dell laptop that connects with full signal strength in the same place as the ibook drops out. Is there anything I can do to fix this issue besides trying to get it repaired or do ibook g4s just have really bad wireless range? If I were to wipe out OS X and reinstall it would it help? I don't think it would because it seems like this would have to be a hardware issue, but I just thought I would check in case anyone else had similiar issues.
