I use the highly technical and complex method of turning it on and leaving it running. It's not really doing anything, just running overnight. It is already logged in at the time. While on Apple, in the end, my complaint turns out to be one about laptops in general, which is the hardware stuff on a laptop is a pain. :) According to Tekserve--by the way, let me recommend them, they seem to know their stuff and they will do all sorts of diagnostics for you at no charge, and not be upset if you decide against the work being done--the problem is in the airport card's antenna which may be why it's so sporadic. So, I ordered her a USB wireless thing. It was interesting, while some of the standard (Linksys, Dlink) brands can be made to work with Mac, they are, according to Google, often problematic--so I ordered a different one from afterthemac.com. None of the standard ones available at say, CompUSA claim Mac compatibility on the product's box. Basically, she plans to, next year, bag this and get a tower, but she needs something to bring with her to Europe, and possibly Japan late in the Summer. So it's a matter of bandaging it along for another 9 months. -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6
