Wireless USB adapter signal dropping

  Rhuddlan 21:25 27 Jul 2014

Recently acquired sky broadband had to place the router in the living room next to the phone line, pc upstairs in bedroom opposite end of the living room has a USB wireless network adapter installed however signal keeps dropping according to windows it's a problem with the adapter however when it us connected at least nearly all the bars on the icon in the task bar are showing so it seems to be a good signal when available. The latest drivers are installed and there is no problems showing in device manager. I really don't understand what the issue is??

Thanks rdave13 that seems to have stayed connected however now internet explorer and google chrome won't load anything! I have selected channel 11 I'll try 9 too

Great so the signal dropping has stopped however now we pages won't load in ie or google chrome! I changed the wireless channel from auto to 11, also deleted cookies and web history but still no luck. I have no choice but to have my broadband router and pc in different rooms due to lack of space

I'm afraid my luck has ran out. Both channels 9 & 11 are now dropping! Can anyone suggest something else?
