    iPhone WiFi vs. Macbook WiFi?
    I live in a two-bedroom apartment on the second floor. With my MacBook, I have a strong signal everywhere, up to about 50 feet away. On my iPhone, the signal begins to weaken just outside my front door.

    Is this normal? Anyone else notice a weaker WiFi signal on the iPhone vs. other equipment?

    My Iphone shows a weaker signal but it picks up and seems to have the same
    speeds even when showing a low signal. It seems to work everywhere my Mac book works in the about my house. But then again I have not tried to see how far it will go but I get wifi signals when I am on some highways which is odd when in heavy traffic. So I would think it has a good range.

    Thanks. My MacBook (and another laptop) are definitely able to pickup and maintain WiFi signal better than the iPhone.

    Anyone else?
