The first thing I do when I have any issue with my wireless is uninstall everything that has to do with wireless. I go and get the latest drivers/software for my wireless card. Then in device manager I uninstall the wireless card listed under Network Adapters then in Add/Remove programs I uninstall any software doing with the wireless. Reboot and install the new drivers/software. Then configure the software for your wireless settings on your router. Then if you still have issues you know its not the drivers or software. 9 times outta 10 this resolved the issue =)

Surfing in the true sense of the word is rather difficult on a calm ocean, which is the opposite of what I need. Page loading on my d/top ranges from very slow to not loading at all. Rebooting my router seems to help as does dns cache flushing, using IE8 or FF makes no difference. :thumbsup:
