    My iPhone seems to have a more sensitive WiFi antenna than my MacBookPro. I'm sitting right now in an area in which I'm connected to WiFi via my iPhone but my MBP won't connect. I guess this may be more of a MBP question, but does anyone know why this might be the case?

    The regular Macbook is too.

    I have no answer for why, but yes, you are correct.

    The MBP`s metal casing can be the only culprit here. Still I find it hard to believe that iPhone has better wifi reception than MBP. But one thing I m sure about is that the 1st generation iPhone doesnt stand anywhere near my CoreDuo MacBook in the WIFI department.
