hey all, lately my wireless connection has been disappearing, suddenly getting weaker and the bandwidth dropping occasionally as well for a minuet or two. What is a good tool to try and figure out whats going on, a tool that shows me noise levels, and other type things. Thanks a lot.

by the way my wireless network has 1 wired, 2-3 wireless laptops ( usually only 2 on at a time), a wireless printer and wireless ipod touch. I'm using a newer ( just switched from an older) linksys wireless G router. I have about 15mbps and my network is secure.

ISP is comcast.

Xirrus Wifi monitor is good for that. It is a windows vista/7 gadget so I guess it only works on them but it shows all of that type of info.
