      I think I would do a site survey either using the utilities that manage your wireless adapter or download the new Vista version of Netstumbler called Vistumbler (I think). Look for strong wifi signals in your neighbourhood and find a channel as far as poss from the strongest.

      It could be a strong intermittent rf source - like a microwave or a DECT phone.

      Does the same problem occur if you are connected by LAN cable to the router? If it does then it's some other problem.
