    Ok since we don&#39;t have a networking forum (hint, hint <g>), I thought I&#39;d just post here that my Airport card and base have arrived and I&#39;m typing this wirelessly

    What type of speeds/signal are you getting from it? Is there a tool to inform you about this? Any screen shots of the airport admin panel?

    Well speed I can&#39;t really tell, but I don&#39;t notice any difference between Airport and being directly connected to my LAN. Signal strength is awesome. There is a utility with Airport you can use to to see signal strength or there&#39;s many differnt Konfabulator widgets that will do that for you also. I&#39;ll post some screen shots of some stuff, but let me switch to IE so I can

    Yep, I switched the base I ordered and got the one with a LAN out port. So my Dell is connected via LAN and of course my iBook via wireless. It&#39;s truly awesome and it was VERY easy to setup and configure. But I would expect nothing less of Apple&#33;

    What would be really cool is that if the weather outside was nice, I could be sitting outside right now surfing on the iBook. Yes, Airport is definitely a must. For a good deal check out http://www.smalldog.com . They&#39;ve got awesome customer service and great prices. They sell Apple refurbed regular airport base stations (that&#39;s what I got) and a good price.

    Besides, for an iBook, why pay more for an Airport Extreme Base that you&#39;ll never use.
