Airport signal low since installing Tiger


This is for anyone who had to search for two days (like myself) for an answer to the problem of loss of Airport signal after installing Tiger.

I have two PCs and my Mac attached to a Netgear DG834G wireless adsl router. My Mac is an Imac G4 with a plain old Airport card.

I found that the signal would generally stay at around two bars and then rise to full signal every so often. The network speed was constantly very, very slow.

Change the wireless channel and experiment. Mine Mac now works amazingly quickly.
