My new Airport sure does look good....

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Too bad Apple saw fit to send it seperate from my new ibook <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" /> A question though. I will be connecting the airport to my cable modem. The modem is currently alongside my TV, since I didnt want to stretch coax from my TV to my desk.

Is the airport affected by the magnetism generated by my TV? I was thinking of putting it next to my TV, or on top of the bass module for my surround sound.

    My base station is pretty close to my TV and there doesn't seem to be a problem.

    I'm more concerned about airport being affected by my own magnetism :o

    There will be a little interference from the TV, but not enough to be noticeable. However, if it were next to a microwave, you would find severe interference. (Your microwave is designed to be a perfect antenna because it uses the same frequency as 802.11 to cook your food) When I first set up my wireless network, my microwave was between my room and the hub. I got frustrated because my room was the only dead spot in the house. Easy fix.

    I have situate it atop my B&W G3 which rests on the back of my cable modem and the top-back handle. 4 Bars as far the eye can see.

    It started working when Mr. T threw it across the room...
