I have a new laptop with verizon service.there is only one computer in the house and the router is in a thin cupboard and is at most 40 feet away.When service is normal it's very fast,but sometimes it seems to crawl and my bars will be x'ed out stating "no connection" When I use the ethernet cable it's always perfect. Why is this happening? Could it be something wrong with the router.Any help will be appreciated.

it maybe the wireless signal on the router or interference
can we see an xirrus screen shot

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
Then run and install the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic14738.html

For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.
