      I 'm using a belkin usb G connector on a Fujitsu Laptop running Xp service pack 3 using the sky sagem router.
      Check in the power settings of your laptop that it is not set to switch off. I am not sure of the XP settings for a laptop, but you are looking for a mode which does not shut down the adapter.
      Go to the Device Manager and open the Properties of the USB controllers, check on the Power tab that the PC is not allowed to close them down to save power.
      You might also want to try turning off the security in the router for a while, see if that helps.
      Finally, try changing your wireless manager. If you are using the adapters, try using the Windows one and vice-versa.

      It could be interference from another network. Download Netstumbler from the link below. If it is compatible with your adapter it will show you what networks are in your area and the channels they are using. Change to a channel as far from those being used as possible. Try to find one at least 3 numbers away.

      Hi
      just an update but it seems to have just sorted itself.
      I can now connect quite happily having not really changed anything, so i am edging my bets it must have been some interference or maybe another network....

      cheers again

      Will

      There is a good chance that whoever was interfering with your network has changed their channel, as yours would also have been interfering with theirs. I would still advise Netstumbler for future problems.
