Set up my wireless network, what router, what networkcard in my laptop

Hey all,

I have a couple of questions about networking and wireless network, because I don't know much on this subject...

Lets start with my internet: I have a cable coming out of the wall, that leads to a router (DI-624+) From which 3 cables go to my 3 desktops

Now the DI-624+ also has wireless connection

So now, I'm planning to buy a new laptop, but I will mainly use it in my room (upstairs, so I can't connect it with a cable)

So I will have to use wireless, but there are some problems:

When I use a laptop upstairs, I have a good connection, but each 3 minutes or so, the connection is interupted for like 1 second, causing games and other stuff to dc
So I think it is pretty unstable

Also, I think my desktops internet is not on full speed, because when I use wireless on a laptop it's actually faster then on my desktops O.o, is this because of the router?

What causes this? Should I buy a new router and which one?

And also for my future new laptop: what type of network card or something should it have?

  1. Mm, the main problem is the disconnect each 3 minutes or so
    Can anyone tell me what causes it?
    The signal is 100% and suddenly it goes to 0 for about 1 sec, then builds up again (repeat)
    Can anyone say if it is my router? and what new router to buy, to get a stable wireless connection?
    The distance between router and laptop would be 1 floor or like 4meter (with floor in between)
