WiFi signal problems

I connect to the Net from my HP laptop through a Netgear wireless router situated upstairs from my laptop. The signal keeps varying between 8Mbps and 54Mbps. To try and resolve it I connnected a Netgear Wireless USB adaptor to the laptop. This improved the signals for couple of months - but now I'm back to the problem outlined above. I use Win XP to connect through. I've tried doing "ping" tests and am also getting some time outs. Checked with my ISP and they say no problems and signal is also fine from my desktop. Any ideas? Thanks.

If your main computer is accessing the Internet OK, then this isn't an ISP or phone line problem. Have you checked the strength of your wireless signal? You could try another channel number, just in case a neighbour is using the same one as you.
