I checked all of the connections to the antenna and everything appears to be
fine.

There is definitely something wrong with what I now feel is the wireless
card. When I do get it working, within the 5 foot distance from the Linksys
Wireless Access Point, I am only getting 24%!

Hmmmmmmm...............

This may be a stupid question, but did you make sure the antenna was
properly attached to the squeezebox? Tighten it and play with
orientation - my Squeezebox gets 60%+ and that is through a wall.

I've had this happen and it turned out that the antenna on the squeeze box
wasn't screwed in all the way.

(sorry if this sounds like "check the power plug")
