My Airport cant find anything....

My Airport Extreme card in my 2.5dual Power PC cant find any wireless networks to connect to.

I run a pc laptop from the same room (it has a pcm card that links to our broadband phone downstairs) it also locates about 4 other networks.

The Airport card finds nothing, no signal, absolutely NOTHING.

Ive tried a new airport card, reinstalling OSX, a hardware test. Can anyone shed light on a possible reason for my airports incompetance?

I dont know what else to say, so if thats not clear, please ask questions so I can try and make some sense of it.

This may be stating the obvious, but are you sure you have the airport turned on from within osx?

Started bout 2 days ago...had no problems connecting prior to this.

I think it is the antenna (since I can't even any network around me, including that nice GoogleWiFi) --I have no problem connecting with 2 other macs in the house.

Any ideas or heard of defective antennas?
