What do you have to do to reconnect? When you lose connection can you still ping your router? Or your other PC?

I set up a wireless LAN for my folks - I've learned that wireless is pretty susceptible to interference. Metal, CD's, AM radios...

I've found that wireless USB adapters are the way to go - buy a 10' extension for it and you'll be able to find the sweet spot... Or you could try boosting your signal via a WAP.

Make sure that you don't have any radio, electronics gadgets around your wireless like CStew77 mention. It is suspectable to EMI. Also, make sure that your NICs are seated properly and securely.
