Wireless Adapter Issue

So right now I have some 40$ wireless adapter setup on my Desktop(sorry, don't know specifics; my friend got it for me). The problem is that randomly 1-2 times every night it will disconnect/not pick up the router or whatever for like a couple seconds... just long enough so that if I'm playing a game, I get disconnected from it.

My question is, if I bought the absolute best adapter there is, or at least upgraded, could I avoid this problem? If so, what do you all recommend I buy?

FWIW the router is in the room next to me but running a direct connection is not feasible. I'm not sure what router it is... it's my roomate's.

Lemme know if I'm leaving any necessary info out, I'm not good with computers...

Thanks

  1. You're leaving out most of the necessary info.

    Suggest you experiment with different channels in the router -- see the manual or instructions which came with it.
