G4 Titanium Powerbook airport card work well in a commercial wireless internet setting??

Hi,

I have a Titanium PB that I am thinking of buying an airport card for
so I can use it in local businesses that offer wireless internet
connection.

I haven't thought much about wireless before but I remember hearing
that the location of the airport card in the original G4 PB made for
bad reception. Anyone had any experience to know that getting an
airport card for this purpose will work for me?

Thanks, Dale

Dale,

It does have bad reception. I'd recommend buying a PC-Card instead.
I'm using an Asante Friendlynet 802.11g Wireless g PC Card and it has
much better range than the built-in Airport card that came with my
PowerBook.

I own one. The reception isn't really that bad -- I can get through three
heavy walls with my aluminium Powerbook, or two heavy ones with my first
generation titanium.

In some of the early models the antena was detached slightly. This is where a
lot of the "terrible reception" stories come from.

They don't have bad reception. They have "less good than some other
models" reception.
