intermittent reception

  vally 19:12 11 Mar 2007

downstairs i am using a new Netgear Rangemax Next WNR834B 270Mbps cable router with NTL broadband
upstairs i am trying a Novatech 802.11g 54Mbs USB2 dongle adaptor on an older style PC with USB1 sockets off a Jetway 866SA-R motherboard
reception is intermittent so i am guessing the motherboard could use a usb2 PCI card
is this likely to work faster on a usb1 motherboard or am i barking up the wrong tree

Is your signal being disrupted by another device in range using the same channel.

Try switching the network to another channel and see if it improves. Digital cordless phones and the like can all cause disruption.
