Try changing the channel:
same procedure, you may have to change from auto108 back to do this, its all on the same screen.
Another thing you could try is the encryption etc, but lets do one thing at a time.

should i go back to 108Mbs once i've changed channel?
it's on 6 at the mo - is it better to choose something nearby or go back to 1 and work my way through?

You are going to have to find the best channel, afaik you will need to go off auto to change it each time. Going to be a pain to go through but hopefully worth it in the end. Yes go back to auto108

great to find a forum like this with such helpful and generous folks

try 1 6 11 first as those are the main channels.
if its still poor, then look for anything that obvious blocking the signal

:idea: Any Microwaves About?

interestingly, when you switch from g & b back to Auto140, the channel automatically switches back to 6, no matter what you've set it at
but - on the plus side - i seem to be (for no apparent reason) getting much better speeds today - between 2.5 and 5.5 MB/s
still not the 9 or 10 i can get when wired, but a whole lot better than the last month's 0.5
certainly enough to keep me happy
for the moment!
thanks again guys for all your help
