Weird Wireless Problem

I have an iBook G4. Everytime my iBook picks up a wireless signal, after a while it stops detecting the signal. For example, at home I have a linksys router. The wireless connection worked for several months until one day it just wouldn't work anymore. The other day I went to my friend's house. My iBook picked up the wireless signal from her wireless router, but the next day it couldn't detect it anymore. I went to the library yesterday and picked up a wireless signal. After it woke from sleep it couldn't detect a wireless signal anymore. Each time I perform network diagnostics, everything is green until Internet. Can anyone please suggest any solutions?

I am having the same problems with my PowerBook and can't figure out what is causing it.

check your airport settings (home, automatic, etc)? check the airport card is in correctly and the antenna? just throwing out possibilities.

Weird. I posted a similar issue/question over at Switcher Hangout (this was one of a couple issues I'm having). Both my new iMac and new iBook g4 did this. I checked and rechecked everything -- during this process once thing I noticed was my WEP password seemed to have added 1 or 2 add'l characters on its own (yes, on its own, nobody touched it -- I'm the only one in the house that knows how, and it's locked).

I didn't repair permissions -- how do you do that?
