Unreliable Wireless Broadband

I recently moved house and was pleased to have successfully installed Virgin Broadband + Buffalo router + Belkin adaptor to my PC. Everything works ! But intermittently. Some days I get straight on, with excellent signal. Other days I have to fiddle with unplugging modem, resetting router, restarting my computer. Today I have low signal, which keeps 'blinking' - on and off.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

TRy changing the wireless channel you may be getting "interferance" with other users in your local.

You have to go into router settings page using Internet Explorer, try typing 192.168.1.1 in address bar and press enter the try admin for password etc look under wireless settings for channel

THANKS to Fruit Bat and Woodchip - I think I have managed it ........... !
What I did - Using router installation disk - went into Client Manager/Profiles - then Scan.
Without your help, I would never have thought of Client Manager - I thought it was something 'in the environment' !!
BIG THANX
