Intermittent wireless connection
I'm trying to connect my WinXP home Desktop PC to my wireless router, but every 15-20 seconds or so the connection seems to halt. When pinging my router, I got about 15 or so 1MS replies, followed by a timeout, then back to 15-20 1MS reples. My PC is about 5-6 metres away from the router.
Connecting my PC to the router directly using an ethernet cable did give me a stable connection, I didn't experience any packet loss. There are also 3 other computers in the house (3 laptops all running Vista), I've tried pinging on these machines and they don't have any problems, they are all connecting via wireless. Today I bought a replacement wireless adapter for my PC (a PCI card rather than a USB one), the problem is almost exactly the same, but I'm getting 2k+ ping responses every 15 seconds instead of timeouts, so it's still pretty bad.
Seeing as the other computers in my house have no problems at all with their connection to the router, could it be a problem with my PC, or do I just have two dodgy wireless adapters?
