Thread: Airport signal
10-03-2006, 09:12 PM #1onlynismoGuestAirport signal
my airport signal keeps bouncing up and down. it would go to full strength to nothing...alll sitting in the same spot. i'm using a linksys router but i've never had a problem with this before. but a couple of days ago, i opened up my ibook to replace the display...and i understand that the antanne wire comes out for the display, but i ended up using the same display i was using before. anyone know why i'm having this problem? or how i can fix it? i tried restarting my router, but that didn't work...

Sounds to me like you may have loosened the antena wire. You might want to have a look and make sure it is secure.__________________________________________________

does anyone have any experience in changing the internal antenna that comes out from the screen? the little part on there is held on to the screen with a double sided tape, does anyone know how to remove that?

It's possible that somebody else is using a wireless network on the same channel as you. If they are, then being very close to your router will have a sufficiently high signal that it will fix on it, but any further away and it'll lose it.
Grab iStumbler and see if this is the case. If it is, pick a different channel and you should be away. The iStumbler dashboard widget is very useful - it graphically shows you the overlapping signals. Quite often I see two or three networks with SSIDs like 'NETGEAR' and 'LINKSYS' trampling all over each other.
