    Hey all,

    So my MacBook (early 2008, white intel core2duo) seems to be getting TERRIBLE reception of wifi in my house (~11% according to my router) whereas my iPod 1g and 4g, both Dell laptops, and our T.V. are connected without a problem ever (seamless web connectivity).

    Also, my airport turns off at random times and cannot turn back on. I've searched everything and tried every "solution" and my problem persists. It goes away for a few months after a fresh install, but comes back again. I don't know what I should do.

    Should I just keep doing a restore every few months (it's tedious as heck), or is this a sign of a bigger problem (Airport malfunction, logic board acting up, etc.)?

    Yeah :/ That's what I think too. So I would have to ship it in right? I'm still under AppleCare, so it should be free?
