I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router, and three laptops that all use the built-in Windows XP wireless tool. I experience a loss of connection with some frequency. This seems to happen more (although I may be imagining) when the room temperature is colder. Also, the laptops are frequently unable find the Linksys signal. I will experience these things even when I am in the same room with the router. This is particularly annoying on my work laptop, as I have to reconnect to the VPN every time this happens.
Is there a wireless setting I should change somewhere? Or could I avoid this problem by buying a router with a stronger signal? Any suggestions as to brand and model?
