      I would move the sender as far as possible from the router and if possible do not share the same mains socket in case anything is being mains borne.

      The sender may allow change to another channel and manual may specify which frequencies are used. Hopefully you can compare these with the channels/frequencies used by the router -- see manual for the router (Sagem's home site or look at any other 802.11 spec router manual perhaps on the Netgear site).

      Try changing the Router WiFi channel. Whatever it set at try going as far away from that as you can in the range 1-12. To change the routers WiFi enter 192.168.0.1 in your browsers address bar, then enter

      admin

      followed by

      sky

      and that should get you into the routers menu. Choose WiFi, change the Channel number and remember to SAVE the new settings.

      No you will not lose the conection try channels 1/6/11
      I am sure you will find at least one that works

      once you change the channel click apply and turn the
      router off at the power for a few seconds then turn back
      on this will allow the pc to reconect on the new channel.
