    Is there any way to improve the wifi signal acquisition on my 12" g4 powerbook?
    I'm noticing that the 14"Ibook I'm comparing my PB to get a better signal sitting side by side.

    Other than checking that the AirPort antenna is firmly snuggled into the card, short of installing an external antenna or something, there's no real way to improve the wireless reception on the buggers. That's unfortunately the reality of having a metal-skinned laptop :\

    The Airport Extreme card is located in the battery bay underneath a little flippy door above the battery connector. Flip it down, and gently pop the antenna out and pop it back in. See if that doesn't do some good.
