      Buy some homeplugs and do away with the wireless.

      You could try changing the wireless channel and see if that helps. You would need to change the channel on both the router and the wireless adapter, i have read some say this can help the wireless speed.

      Hope this helps.

      It's really helpful, it will cure your problem. You will get no more wireless interference, no more security issues, no more wireless lag when gaming, no more driver and wireless manager problems, why would you need wireless, unless you are using a laptop and if so you can get a homeplug with a wireless extender built in so you can cover any dead spor you need.

      You could even use the homeplug in the garden at the end on an extension lead so don't be so quick to dismiss it
