Maxy is on a distinguished road
Mac Specs: emac, G4 laptop, G5, imac 2.4Ghz intel duo,

Maxy is offline

I have a 6 mth old time capsule which puts out a network to my imac intell in the same room and at he other end of the house (25 metres or 8 yards) my sons imac G5 sometimes has a full signal (on the fan) and sometimes has a low signal and sometimes he cannot connect. About the centre I have 'bridged' an airport express which has not assisted. our next door neighbors have airports - are they blasting us off the air??

should i add a bridge with another airport extreme??

thanks in advance for any advice.

What OS are you using that has issues and are you on ADSL and seems to me that 8 yards is about 7 metres. Used to have 2 older extremes to cover the distance that one of the newer gigabit extremes does easily and that must have been 20 metres.
