Poor reception with 667 TiBook

Airport performance with my 17" PB seems fine. But the reception with my 15" TiBook really stinks.

Is this just a limitation with the TiBooks that I'll have to live with? Or is there something I can do to improve reception?

I've already tried what Apple recommends on their web site, to no avail.

From what I have read in the past the Alum powerbook get better reception than the Ti powerbook. There was a little trck that you can try that must help. If I remember correctly, remove the battery and in the battery compartment rub the side walls around the battery area. There was an area that the antenna was located.
