I have a MacBook Pro 1.1 that has problems with the WiFi.

I have a strong wireless router that reaches the far side of my house, but with my MacBook Pro, I have to stay within 1 meter of the router to have internet connection. If I move out of the range, I lose connection.

Is there a way to fix this?

There have been reports of the A/B/G (not N) wireless cards in the original MacBook and MacBook Pro from 2006 losing sensitivity. The best solution seems to be to replace the card. If it's any consolation, you could use this opportunity to upgrade to N.
