wireless connection

I am having a problem with my wireless connection.

I log on to the internet from my wireless laptop and i can connect to the internet fine. However, about 10 minutes my connection starts to go (first MSN, then web pages) Sometimes my skpe remains connected but eventually it goes.

When i go to the wireless network (WAP encoded correctly) it says it is still connected.

I can only reconnect when i restart my PC.

Any suggestions? I am getting fed up with turning my laptop on and off!!!

Open the router's configuration page and try changing the channel number,for example if your currently on channel 3 try channel 11.

Just to add,you have ran all antivirus/spyware scans ?

Yes i have done with McAffe. Could this be causing a problem.

I am on Sky broadband, and they did not supply the address to access the router. I was given, with the network key, they it should be channel 11 but how can i chaeck this?
