Problems using Yahoo Messenger



My wife works from home and we both have Yahoo Instant Messenger on our pooters. When she is logged on and the Airport card signal strength drops below 2 bars it logs her off Yahoo and she has to re-connect. It's very annoying.

I haven't found anything that can help by searching Yahoo so I turn to my apple community. Anyone else experience this? Is there anyway to fix it? It stinks cause while I get full strength almost anywhere in the house with my clamshell she just barley get a signal due to her Ti casing.

Please help.
