    what type of router is it? is i Wireless N? or is B/G only?

    can you get better speeds while using ethernet on the same router? because if the ethernet speeds are different than the N then you have a wireless issue...or if theyre the same/slow then your router might be crapping out.

    do a complete cycle off all your devices with the modem to the router to the computer.

    any interference in your area? try a different channel to connect to on your router.

    Also if it is always scanning select the wireless network you want to join and click remember this network.
    chances are its trying to connect to open networks and not your home network.
