      Wireless Connection Keeps dropping out

      I have had my computer where it is now for around 8 months my internet is usualy fine but about 2 weeks ago my connection began dropping out after the connection drops out i try to reconnect and it just says unable to connect to network i have reset my router and even began having to disable and enable my wireless network card, now although that used to sort it out sometimes now it doesnt, my connection remains faulty so i just give up and turn my computer off does anyone have any ideas of what the problem could be and how to fix it?
      Greatly appreciated !

      Wireless is notoriously temperamental and you could have outside influences affecting your connection. Try changing the channel in your router settings in the first instance.

      Probably another new wireless network in your neighbourhood is interfering with your signal. Download Netstumbler from the link below and if it is compatible with your router it will show all the networks in your area. Change the channel in your router to one as far from those in use as possible. Remember that Channel 13 is usable.
