i tried the page you sent me but no help =//

it keeps telling me no wireless networks were found in range when there is.

for some reason it finds it for like 30 seconds and then it cuts off.

or it connects and as soon has i open firefox it cuts off.

Using WIFI systems is sometimes very tricky. Walls and furniture can affect the signal strength. Your wireless adapter should have a process that tells you how strong the signal is and what the quality is. It does sound like your desktop is at the limit of the signal strength. You can try moving your desktop to different places in the room to see if it makes a difference. It is also quite possible the wireless adapter is either week or just bad. What kind of router do you have and how far is it from your desktop? What kind of wireless adapter are you using on your desk top? If you were to use your laptop at the same site as your laptop, does your laptop work fine?
