Thread: iBook AirPort Wireless Issue
01-27-2005, 10:13 AM #1knivesoutGuestiBook AirPort Wireless Issue
I just got my 12" iBook G4 this week and went about upgrading the memory. In order to do so you must remove the AirPort wireless card and replace it when finished.
Well, after getting the iBook all back together I've had horrible wireless reception with the AirPort card. I can only see a single AP now instead of 8 before, and I can't connect to my AP outside of that room anymore. I check to make sure that the card is seated and the antenna connection is good to card and everything seems to be okay.
Anybody have any ideas about what could be wrong here? I'm hoping I haven't broken it in the first week! neye: I'd really appreciate any help.

Sorry to hear about that mate. I will be adding RAM to mine in a weeks time. I hope you get the answers you need so I can watch out for the problem.
Did you pinch the wire connecting to the Airport card by any chance while installing the RAM?

check the antenna again, if it has a smalll kink or is even a little bent, itll mess up the reception.

o_o; I may just have Apple install my memory.

Don't fret Phiber, i've had my airport card out about 6 times because i had duff RAM first time round - i've got excellent airport reception
Just make sure you actually push it back on properly!

I had the same problem after I upped my memory in my iBook. I booted up my machine with the keyboard off. I kept movinthe wire around till my reception came back. Also push the connector from the antenna wire into the airport card. When I put in my airport card the first time I guess i didn't have it in all the way. Works fine now. Hope this works for ya.

EDIT: I just fixed it!!! Just had to push the connector in to the cube-like base of the connector. Apparently I'm a moron. Thanks to you all for the advice!

off-topic, but knivesout, is that a reference to Radiohead? If so, awesome!
