I am having problems with my wireless connection. There are 3 laptops 2 ipods and an Xbox all trying to get connection The problem is that its always my laptop that seems to lose the connection. Even if we are all sitting in the same room the kids will get good or excellent strength and my laptop shows poor or local only. I have just been upgraded from base to unlimited. Any ideas?

Re: Poor connection
What router do you have? if its the sagem then the wireless is crap. Either look at getting home plugs consider using Ethernet cable for some of your devices. Which will help split the load on the wireless side. Ethernet cable is always going to win hands down over wireless IMHO. Security for one and speed for an other.
The other thing is that what ever your connection speed, it has to be shared out between you all. So if only one person is using their connection to download or P2P then the rest are buggered, no matter what.
Check no ones downloading and taking up all the bandwidth, also check theres nothing running in the back ground that shouldn't be.
