airport problem


I have 1st gen. airport in my iBook. It only works about half the time in the very next room. Internet Connect shows all the blue markers lit for signal strength. But even when lit it often will not connect. Then it suddenly
goes out. I try various adjustments in Airport Utility, in the Airport Menu etc. but the only thing that works is to restart the iBook, unplug the base station and then plug it back in again. Happens daily now. All I changed was to add a password. I also checked the airport card connection in the iBook and it was fine. What could be the problem?
Move your base station and try ticking increase signal robustness, you may be getting interference.
