My internet has been horrible for the past year or two. I've been living with it just because I don't know what's wrong and I wouldn't know how to fix it. What it would do is stay at 2 bars (wireless) and then go to none, then go back to 2. Two bars was good internet. 3+ was unheard of. Now it's doing something worse- it's either got full internet or no bars at all. I turn airport off and back on and it works again fine- but not for long. Sometimes 10 minutes if I'm lucky. Sometimes I have to restart it twice just to load one page.

My boyfriend replaced the antenna in my computer as we both thought that was the issue... but apparently its not. Could there be something wrong with the card? Is that common? What else could be wrong? Thanks.
QUOTE Thanks
