hi there!
well this is my little weird and frustrating problem.
when ever i'm using wi-fi the web-browser (Chrome and Firefox) gets stuck every 5-10 minutes and after 20-30 seconds it's starting to work again. it happened in all kind of places with wi-fi. And nobody else complain about this problems - so it's not a Internet infrastructure problem. Also the driver of the wi-fi adapter and it's up to date. 
any other ideas what could be the problem?
Thanks! :-)

Wikipedia: WiFi > Interference


For more details on this topic, see Electromagnetic interference at 2.4 GHz.

Wi-Fi connections can be disrupted or the internet speed lowered by having other devices in the same area. Many 2.4 GHz 802.11b and 802.11g access-points default to the same channel on initial startup, contributing to congestion on certain channels. Wi-Fi pollution, or an excessive number of access points in the area, especially on the neighboring channel, can prevent access and interfere with other devices' use of other access points, caused by overlapping channels in the 802.11g/b spectrum, as well as with decreased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) between access points. This can become a problem in high-density areas, such as large apartment complexes or office buildings with many Wi-Fi access points.

Additionally, other devices use the 2.4 GHz band: microwave ovens, ISM band devices, security cameras, ZigBee devices, Bluetooth devices, video senders, cordless phones, baby monitors, and (in some countries) Amateur radio all of which can cause significant additional interference. It is also an issue when municipalities or other large entities (such as universities) seek to provide large area coverage.

Even bad electrical connections can cause broad RF spectrum emissions.
