My WiFi is causing problems & I could do with some advice.
Netgear DG434GT router & Win XP PC. Internet & email work OK but keep losing connections to my music streamer devices.
I play music at 128kbps over an O2 8Mb broadband but still get rebuffering messages.
Upgraded Netgear firmware to DG Team version but no improvement.
I'm now running on a Thomson FOC router I got with O2 & it now drops every hour or so instead of every few seconds.
I have a WiFi analyser on my smartphone & notice that whereas my neighbours' WiFi signals are more or less constant, mine is a series of sandcastles ie on for 6 seconds & off for 4 sec then cycling on & off again.

Any ideas what's causing this?
Many thanks
