Jennifer and I bought a G5 iMac today.. her old TI Powerbook (800Mhz) wasn’t cutting it for iMovie and iDVD stuff.
The sad thing is, I’ve installed the AirPort Extreme card, and I get no signal to 1 bar, and my AirPort Express box is like 10 feet away from it with a clear line of sight. I initially thought it was the transfer assistant thing, it had copied a bad airport setting in there. So I’ve reformatted and reinstalled everything. Still no luck. The box was pretty beat up, so I have a feeling something broke/got loose in the antenna area. That or it’s designed poorly? (Can’t be, I’d have heard of issues like that already).
Any ideas? Right now I’m taking it back tomorrow to the Apple store… (I’m very disappointed.. I just expect Apple stuff to work, you know).
Update: 11:50pm. I am an idiot. The extreme card antenna cable needed a really hard push to ‘click’ into place. All is well now. Thanks Paul for your email help.
