    It seems that my Airport card is having a problem. While I'm browsing the internet, my connection seems to drop in and out very often. I plugged in a hardline from my router and I get no problems, which lead me to believe it was Airport card. Are PBs known for having Airport card problems? How would I go about replacing it? Thanks for the help.

    The only time I have had intermittent reception with my PB is when there was a primary problem with the cable modem connection itself.
    The other thing I have read about is if the Airport card isn't completely plugged in. You need to make sure the card is pushed in as far as it will go. If it isn't making proper contact, you may end up with intermittent reception.

    Hope that helps - good luck!

    The card is located underneath the battery right? I might pull it out and check it.
