That iStumbler program is a little crazy I think...

What is more accurate, the Airport status showing full strength or that 3rd party application? I just installed the new airport extreme and it seems like its the same exact singal as the old dome shaped one I had! I feel like the speed is a bit quicker but just trying to understand why that program shows such low signal..

I found iStumbler to be next to useless. Take a look at AP Grapher.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

cool thank you. It was pissing me off! I was like come on, 23%!! It's going through one floor! haha. The airport shows 4 bars as well, so I guess as long as that is full I'm ok..

Thanks though for the link.
