Netgear DG834G wireless problem

Archived from groups: alt.internet.wireless (More info?)

I'm having problems with my wireless router and I feel like throwing the
thing out of the window!

When connected via Ethernet it runs like a dream. But when I try to connect
any wireless device (1 Laptop and 1 PC) that's when the problem starts.

Firstly, I can connect to the router via wireless with a top signal strength
as demonstrated in this picture...

I can use browse the internet but only at speeds of upto 25-28kbp/s even
though when connected via Ethernet it reaches it's maximum of 1mbp/s. After
a while of using the wireless connection it will also disconnect itself and
sometimes will not reappear unless I reboot the router or computer.

I have tried it on both my laptop (built in Atheros wi-fi device) and my
desktop (linksys pci adapter)

I've updated the Firmware to 1.05.00 and no change.

Any clues on what else I can try?

    Sorted it, changed the Channel from '11' to '1' and it's fine now!
