This is happening much more often nowadays. My WiFi connection seems to just drop out. I know it is not the router, my iBook never loses connection in the same room. Just curious as to what could cause this.

Perhaps there is some information here that would be of use?

Is it supposed to be this slow? (Wireless)

Everything popular is wrong.

It's not that it is slow. In fact it is much faster than my iBook. It's the connection just dropping out. The status in the menubar shows an all-grey airport, no signal at all.

Have you tried changing channels? It may be interference... The default channel is 11 (I think)... try changing it (within the config page) to 6.
