My Powerbook gives me problems on wireless networks. It starts off with a full signal which starts dropping after about 3 - 5 minutes, and then suddenly shoots up again to full and sometimes cuts out completely and then comes back to full signal.

 

The computer is in the same room as the router and there are no problems with the router as all my other wireless devices work fine, even in different rooms.

 

Is there maybe a driver or firmware update for the built in airport card that needs updating ?

 

The computer is a 2005/2006 model Powerbook G4 1.67Ghz 2GB DDR, 15" LCD with 80Gb hard drive, airport extreme and running OSX Leopard 10.5.8.
