AirPort(tm) Saga

| | Comments (0)
So I have five Apple laptops of different models in my home currently. Four have internal AirPort, one has a WaveLAN PC Card. All work great, except for the most expensive one, the TiBook. In some spots in my home its signal strength is horribly weak.

I can use the WaveLAN PC Card under Mac OS 9, but there is no software to easily switch between the two cards. The Orinoco software which I thought would work (just let it handle the PC card, and let AirPort software handle the internal card!) won't, because the Orinoco driver now has a "feature" where it can work with the internal AirPort card. Hm. Maybe I'll see if I can disable that feature.

Anyone know about antennas for 802.11 cards, or better yet, internal AirPort cards?
