    ok so about 2 weeks ago my wireless suddenly dropped on my powerbook. I can be sitting right next to my router and it will bounce between 2 or 1 bars and sometimes completely drop. My wifes computer works fine my mini works fine. The powerbook will not pick up anything at hotels either as I travel alot and my coworkers will have full signal. Anyone have a clue to what could have happened? Or have any ideas of how to solve the problem.

    Thanks in advance,

    I had a similar problem in fall of 2006. It turns out that my Airport card was going bad, as it would only work for a couple of minutes at a time. I eventually had to replace the card, but ever since then it as worked like a champ.
