iMac Dropping Wi-fi Despite All Efforts while other devices work fine

I have an iMac using Snow Leopard. I use my apartment public w-fi and it has worked fine up to a few months back. It started dropping wi-fi no matter where the Mac was positioned in the apartment while my PC and a few other tablets worked fine consistently (tried them at times when the Mac stopped to a several minute crawl or gave me message of no connection).

Is there a QuickLook plugin (for Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" if you didn't follow) to browse sqlite databases? If not, wouldn't that be awesome for Rails and iPhone development!

Would upgrading to Leopard allow my computer to better stream video?

I run a 12 inch Powerbook G4 1.33 with 1.25GB of RAM (Tiger) with 64MB dedicated video card. Anytime I play anything video (ABC, NBC, YouTube, CBS, Fox, AOL Video, etc. etc.), the fans come on full blast (more so than I ever remember, and I've had the computer for almost 42 months now). So I have a couple of questions related to this. First, did something happen online that causes intense pressure on the CPU and causes the fans to blast out? Doesn't my seemingly good video card counteract that, or shouldn't it? And the money question: I've heard rumors that Leopard is much better at handling video compared to Tiger. Would upgrading cause less strain on my CPU, allowing the fans to be a little quieter? Would the video be smoother and allow me to maximize the video screen, instead of always having to keep the screen small (3"x4")?

How do I access an external firewire attached to a Mac Mini from my Mac Book?

I have an external firewire drive attached to a Mac Mini. I have enabled file sharing on the Mini and added the external drive as a shared folder. When I browse to the Mini over the network, I can access the internal hard drive but the external does not show up. Both Macs are running Leopard. How can I get it do show up?
