I've been suspecting it might be an antenna problem, so I'll probably 
pursue this angle. As an aside, I'd also heard there were some weird 
problems with reception after a recent Panther update, though I'm 
guessing that's got nothing to do with my situation. (I'd gotten my new 
iBook right around the time of the update...)

Thanks to everyone else for the comments re. my issue.

Is it still the case that things sent off for repair under Applecare are 
coming back pretty quickly?
