I have two laptops in my household, both running Vista. When they are side by side 1 Samsung is showing a wireless signal as fair and the other an Acer is showing as excellent, but why ?

The Samsung lately seems to have an intermittent connection, sometimes ok for a few hours then it goes. As I play a lot of online poker this is a big problem for me.

I have noticed that when you go to Network and sharing centre when you click diagnose it sometimes says there is no problem (even though there cross is there and sometimes it says there is. It always reconnects though.

Many thanks in advance

will have different wireless network adapters, and that may account for the connection issues.
