OK, so i have a wireless router attached to my cable modem downstairs in my office, and my desktop upstairs has a wireless card in it, so i dont have to worry about running wire all over my house. When im playing games or even just surfing the internet, the wireless connection will go from "Very Good" to non-existant. It disconnects randomly and what seems to be for no reason. It takes like a minute or 2 to reconnect, but still interrupts my video gaming as well as the actual work i do online. Is there anything i might be able to do to make it so i never or atleast very rarely lose connection?

How far are you from the router? Do you have an older house with plaster walls (these have wire mesh in them that disrupt the waves.). If you are really far away you might want to get a repeater...

your best bet with a stationary machine is to set up your ip address as static, soo if/when you lose connection for a moment, your nic dosent have to ask the router for another ip, it already has a valid one.
also, you should check to see if your router has any updatable firmware as these typically solve cnnection issues. need more help, post back for detailed instruction.
