    Hey guys I just recently purchased a Powerbook G4 17" 1.5 512MB.

    The problem I am having seems to be with either the airport card or the airport antenna..... Basically the setup I have at my house I have an office in my home where my desktop/modem/router is all located. When I am in the office the the PB I get 100% great connection and is super fast. However, the problem I am running into is when I leave that room and go out onto the patio the further away I get from the router the worst my connection gets and eventually I lose complete connection to the internet. When I am on the patio I take my girlfriends ibook g4 out there sit it right next to my PBG4 and the ibook has 100% connection.

    I have basically used the process of elimination that I either have a bad airport card or I have a bad antenna.

    Has anyone else ran into this problem with their system?

    I would really appreciate any feedback on this because I love sitting out on the porch in the morning with a cup of coffee enjoying the weather and I love this system but being that I have only had the system for a day I HAVE to get this fixed.
