Is there any reason why my wireless drops out sporadically and with no consistency.

The range is about 10m max from upsatirs to downstairs - thru approx 2 walls, dongle USB in PC.

Also happens to my laptop which is in line of site thru a windoww.

Im in the country so very little chance of band width theft??

Trojantor has cleared any malware and it still occurs???

Do you have any electronics near the router or computer, like a wireless telephone? Almost any electrical device can cause interference.

The cordless phone cradle is next to the router. In the uk broadband wall outlets also have the phone line.

To overcome this should I use a telephone extension lead and move the cradle to another room.is there a reccomended distance or should I use trial and error??

Thx for the reply

I would start by changing the channel on the router, but yes you are correct. Moving the telephone is also advised. You may want to disconnect the wireless telephone to see if the problem clears up.
