  1. I have an apple airport base station which I run my comcast cable internet through. I have been using it with my ibook for quite sometime with no problems. I installed a belkin wirless card in my PC and connected to my network, "Homenetwork" and began using the internet, only it would only hold a connection for about five minutes and then drop me, but while the connection was there it registered as "excellent" I talked to someone at the GeekSquad and they told me to uninstall and reinstall my network card software. I am not extremely computer savvy, so I messed around with it a little bit, and I got an "excellent" connection back on my PC and it doesn't drop me anymore, but I cannot access the internet. So, I have a wireless connection, but no internet. Any insight into this would be awesome! Thanks
