    Connected wirelessly to my 54 but signal strength is awful - unless I am within 5 foot (line of sight) :cheerup: the signal disapears.

    1. What firmware should I install to boost the signal and
    2. is any of the choices available really better for Macs - single user only.

    Before you take any drastic measures, consider this;

    Is this wireless experience typical for your Powerbook?

    Do you connect to your Powerbook in a rural area or in a densely populated urban area where you could expect to find numerous Wi-Fi networks and other devices and gadgets using the same frequency spectrum?

    Do you experience this problem 24/7, or particular times of day or particular days of the week?

    Did you try all the channels 1 - 11 (13)?
