PC losing its WLAN connection

  suburban train 16:51 24 Aug 2006


I have a packard bell PC running XP Pro SP2 and a laptop running on Windows 2000. Broadband is with Tiscali

Sometime ago I bought a 3COM wireless router , PC card for the latop and the USB adapater for the PC.

The signal strength for the laptop is always near 100% anywhere in the house although on rare occasions it does lose its link, but this rare as I use the laptop for overnight downloads.

However with the PC it always loses it connection I cant be connected for more than 30mins before it loses it link the signal strength is always 40% to 60% .

The laptop can be in the spare room with 90 % to 100% but the PC is 40%

When the PC loses it connection and then reconnects a message comes up saying looking for MAC connection.

1) How can I improve the signal strength of the PC

2) How do I stop the PC from losing its connection.

Thanks for your help.
