    Are we talking about the card or the base station? Yeah, more specific details would definitely help. :)

    Mate, maybe give us a few more details. Your post is a bit vague. :eek:

    In the meantime, you can test whether it's the router or the internet connection dropping out by using the wireless network to transfer a large file between machines. If you get a constant stream, then you know something's up with the 'net. :)

    If this isn't the case, then check for interference from devices such as microwaves, other routers, cordless phones and so on. :cool:
