  • My wife gets all my hand-me-downs, technology wise, so she's stuck with a nasty Linksys wavelan card, while I got the shiny new Cisco card. I can get a connection just about anywhere in the house - no problemo. But she's in the next room to the basestation, and has to jiggle things around regularly to get a connection.

    What make is that basestation? A Linksys. :-)
  • For wireless connection (which now streches to the Pub and Cafe near my house), I can highly recommend a huge fricking antenna.

    I can understand your problem with wires though. I still haven't got round to mounting the antenna on the outside of the house. It works quite well inside, but It'd be better out (now if only I could work a way of running the wire outside the house)

  • TiBook (Score:2, Interesting)

    I believe this is a problem with the design of the TiBook. The titanium doesn't make for a great casing over the antenna; In fact, when they came out, a friend of mine noted poor reception through titanium as the reason for the little windows on the side edges of the TiBook casing... Getting an external PCMCIA card is, unfortunately, a good solution for increasing the range.
