Right, this has been happening for a while now.

When I turn on my PC, the internet works fine for say... 15 mins... and then it starts losing the connection and then getting it back... losing it... getting it back... losing it.... etc. It happens also when I view my GMail and when I try and submit works to deviantART. Any ideas on what's wrong?

Dodgy hardware and/or poor signal strength. I can't play games on my laptop over wireless because it keeps dropping the connection, but with my main PC it's fine. That probably has something to do with the laptop having an onboard intel chip, the main PC has the matching LinkSys adaptor for the router.

be sure to keep the antenna (if there is one) away from other wires, and pointed in the direction or 90 degrees off from where the thing is. If its a laptop, there isnt much you can do.

It's a desktop PC, eg not laptop. And... it's always said poor signal strength. Any ideas how to up the signal strength?
