      Question Ethernet fine wireless drops

      Hi All,
      Had sky for a year never had any problems, ethernet conected PC stable. Using Speedtouch 120G wireless card can see my router and 3 other sky routers set to auto channel picks 6 other sky's use 11. Now keeps dropping wireless. UPNP turned off Fixed access to wireless PC. Signal 46% good connection, I think it is a WINXP issue, searching on MS site found 3 fixes but seem to make no difference. Get limited or no connectivity evn with 46%, nothing has been moved router ariel and 120G in the same place they always have been.

      Any ideas? am on Max stats
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 13462 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 33.5 db 18.9 db
      Noise Margin 6.8 db 13.0 db

      I have rebuilt the wired PC but am not sharing anything on it, wireless PC should just connect to internet.

      Likewise after 6 months stability, in past three days both my wireless connections have been extremely erratic and often one will be ok while the other wont connect. windosw ME with belkin usb and W2K with netgear PCI card. Connection ok with ethernet cable.
      Still on original netgear white router.

      Re: Ethernet fine wireless drops

      First thing I would do is change channel as these are both probably wireless interference issues from other routers in the neighbourhood using the same channel as you.

      I think 1, 6 & 11 are recommended but there are 13 in my router to choose from so have a play around! Set the mode to g & b not Auto 108 while you find a clear channel.
