    Hi I was having some problems with my linksys wireless b router and my ibook g3 with the original airport card, it goes like 10 feet and the signal will drop compleatly or I will only have like one bar, I was wondering if there was something I could do to improve the signal strength.

    Well, Linksys doesn't really play well with Macs. Never has, probably never will. So, sorry...My first question to you....What OS are you on? Jaguar? Panther? Perhaps even Tiger?

    Try sweeping through the channels on the router and see if any give you better reception than what you've got. Should be able to do this through the web config tool (point browser to router's IP address).
