Constant Interference – AirPort Reception Issues

I don’t know about you but wireless technology seems to have gone from great to horrible in just a couple of short years. Back in the day, I could plug in an original AirPort base station to a broadband connection and boom! I was online with a rock solid connection.
Now, my AirPort Extreme base station keeps dropping off the radar, disappearing, submarining, whatever you want to call it. I have added a AirPort Express to the setup so that I can play AirTunes over my stereo system, but yet I can’t see it from my den, a scant 18-feet away.
To make matters worse, I seem to have to constantly reboot either the base station or my DSL modem or both, then often I can’t connect to the same base station when it comes back online “error joining base station.” Huh? What kind of error? A little more description in these dialogs wouldn’t hurt, Apple?
I am having these problems mostly with a 15-inch Aluminum PowerBook 1.5GHz and they doesn’t seem to manifest itself on my 12-inch PBG4.
I am ready to ditch my AirPort hardware and switch to wired Ethernet again! What is the deal with AirPort these days? Could it be my neighbor’s cheap (900MHz) cordless phones? What can be done to stop this madness?
