    Specs:
    Black MacBook 2.2, Hac Pro
    AirPort Signal Strength
    I've recently purchased a Macbook. I've noticed that it has difficulty picking up and holding onto an access point when my other laptop(Compaq with G) will have and consistently hold 4 bars. Is there something that can be done to help bring the strength of it up.

    I also have an issue with iChat. It will log on and off repeatedly until AIM will no longer let it continue. I have a feeling it also has to do with the network connectivity.

    Thanks!

    Sounds like you need to optimize the configuration of your router. This thread will get you started. Post back if you have any questions.
    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!
