i have been using a 802.11b netgear router. recently got an ibook g4 and was impressed with how it easily picked up the wireless signal - better than the netgear wireless network card on my windows laptop. recently, the ibook just could not detect the network signal at all. it could detect 2 or 3 from neighbors, but no sign of even a weak signal from my netgear router. can someone explain what could have happened? I tried disconnecting our 2.4ghz cordless phone which we've been using with the router without any problems, but this didn't fix it. Please help.

at a loss using neighbor's signal.

Hello peter123 and welcoem to Geeks to Go,

I am not an avid Mac user, so I cant offer much help on your topic, I have researched it thoroughly and every posting on just about every other site says that Mac + Netgear = trouble. I am only replying with this, because no one else has. You might want to consider purchasing another brand of router, unless anyone else here can help...

yeah, sounds like a hardware problem w/router............ if it's new or under warranty, replace it at no cost to you
