    I was just wondering if anyone else is using an AirPort Extreme Card in their new iMac? I am and I'm not very impressed with the connection I'm getting. I'm sitting in front of my iMac right now with my iBook and I have 3 out of 4 on my little antenna thing, but on my iMac I only have 2 out of 3. It bounces from 1 - 3 but never full, and I can tell that it is slower on the internet than my G3 iMac 500. What gives?

    It could be the angle that the iMac is sitting at. The antenna are on the sides of the machine, so the rest of the machine could actually be blocking the wifi signal from getting to the antenna.

    Do you know which side it is one when you are facing it?
