Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
All my friends have macbooks and have no trouble connecting to a wireless network, but mine has trouble unless I am virtually right on top of the router. Why?
Sounds like your antenna connectors have come loose. You'd need to reseat the connectors on the wireless card. They are very small and just 'pop' on, but you have to be sure you are pushing directly down and not even a little bit to one side.
Alternately, you could just buy a USB 1.1 mac compatible wifi adapter. Since they are external, you already get better signal strength, and worst case, you can use a USB extension cable to sort of fake an antenna (by moving the actual adapter at the end of tha extension for best reception)
