WiFi slow, drops connection

  shadowmancer 21:12 25 Jul 2007

I have just purchased a D-Link Wifi router, in replacement for my old stardard router. As the title suggests, however, I'm having a few difficulties.
I'm trying to connect a laptop to the network. It connects, but surfing the net is as slow as dial-up used to be, and it sometimes disconnects randomly.
Does this problem sound familiar to anyone and, if so, how can I resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance

What sort of signal are you getting?
Hover the mouse over the wireless icon.
Have you tried changing the channel on the router,its normally set at 11 as default.Try repositioning the router incase of interference.
Sometimes home cordless phones can interfere with the wireless connection

We have three cordless phones. I tried a couple of channels, perhaps I'll try all of them just to see. The signal is 100% when its on, but like I said it drop it almost randomly. I'll post back with the results of the channel switch
