Wondering if someone out there can help please?
I have a small Home network of a PC and two laptops, which i run through a Netgear DG834G wireless router.The PC is wired to the router and the Laptops work with a Wireless connection.
If I take you through my day, you should get some idea of how the problem occurs.

Usualy boot up about 8.00 a.m. The PC is used for general Internet type stuff. The first laptop is logged on to the server in my office which is about 300 miles away. The second laptop is used by my Son.

Everything is usualy ok until 4.00-4.30 p.m., when things start to get a little slow. By 6.00 the connection to the PC and my sons laptop is intermittent, by 7.00 pm it is dead. Using Google as a Home page, you can get search results, but try clicking on the link and you get Internet Explorer cannot display etc. However all through this disruption the connection to the remote server at the office works fine, and I can access the internet through it.

I've tried resetting the Browser, deleting all temp Internet files, dissabling the Firewall. I've changed the size of the packets on the Routerand rebooted it, everything I can think of in fact. Is the fault in the PC? I dont think the router is at fault due to the remote connection. The infuriating thing is, that come 8.00 a.m everything works like new, only for the cycle to be repeated.

Have you checked to see if it gets better later on at night? If so, it could be a problem with your ISP being overloaded by too many users at that time of day.

You can monitor your connection speeds at this website throughout the day: http://www.speedtest.net/
