There is something interferring with the network signal. Try and move things away from speakers and base unit. move the router to a different location...

have you tried the lyksks freephone tech helpline 0800 3267114 they are very good.

I had the same or similar problem and cured it by entering the TCP/IP settings manually rather than automatically finding the IP address.

Don't know if it could help you but I'll post what I did if it might help.

Start/All Programs/Connect to/Wireless Connection

Under the Support Tab click on Details and make a note of these numbers carefully and what they refer to. You don't need the Physical Address at the top or the WNS Server at the bottom.

Go back to the General Tab to the left of Support and press Properties. Double click on Internet Protocal (TCP/IP) and enter the numbers above by manaully configuring the two options.i.e. change them both to 'Use the following........'

If this doesn't make sense post back.It's a lot easier than I have probably made it out to be. You can always simply change the settings back if it doesn't work but I think it will as you wont have to search for the IP details each time.

The bottom two DNS Server details

are the two that you have made a note of.
