Flaky internet connection on one laptop, LAN ok

Hello, I've got a wireless network with a Netgear DG834G router talking to a Win XP laptop and a Mac desktop. The Mac has no problems connecting to the internet or the LAN (the router and the laptop). The laptop has no problems connecting to the LAN (the router and the Mac), but the internet connection drops in and out. Could anyone point me in the right direction on how to fix the flaky internet connection. I've installed the Intel ProSet utilities on the laptop, which is a Sony Vaio.

Thanks for any help, James

Does the laptop work better on the Internet when placed close to the wireless router? When cabled to the wireless router? Are you using any peer-to-peer filesharing apps? Have you read the wikis below?
