      Angry Wireless dropping every few minutes, driving me wild!! please help

      I hope someone can help me, ive had nothing but trouble from sky and i am the world worst fan of wireless at the moment.

      My wireless connection drops and reconnects itself constantly now but was working fine for months. something went wrong with my wireless dongle and i had to buy a new one. since installing it, the connection kept dropping. i tryed changing the channel, disabling upnp and most other things i could find. the biggest pain is that the computer downstairs (with the same dongle plugged in) doesnt disconnect at all.

      another thing to add i have only just noticed, is that if i dont have anything running (msn, utorrent, a few clicks through internet pages) it seems to stay connected (probably only temporary) but as soon as i do anything i want to do, it disconnects again and then reconnects!?

      please help me somebody!

      thankyou

      Have you tried putting the dongle from the pc downstairs into the pc upstairs and then this would elimanate the dongle.

      See to be honest i would use an ethernet cable.
      Have you tried changing the ssid on the router to your first name and then make sure that you are entering the network key in capitals are you using windows to configure the network or the software that came with the dongle.
