A friend has a Netgear DG834G wirless router, and a Sony Vaio laptop running XP Home with a WG111 USB network adapter, also has another laptop wired to the router.
The problem is every so often usually after about an hour the laptop just suddenly loses the wireless connection, the signal strength meter on the laptop is one bar away from full strength before it disconnects, then suddenly the connection drops altogether. You have to restart the computer to get the connection back.
So far I have tried
Disabling Windows Wireless Zero Configuration and using Netgears Own Software Upgraded the WG111 drivers to the latest Assigned a static IP address to the laptop
Lastly I borrowed the laptop and router and tried it at my house which worked fine didnt drop the connection once. Which leads me to believe that something giving off interference in my friends house or surrounding area could be causing the connection to drop. I have told them this but they seem conviced there is a problem with the router.
If the router worked fine at my house for 36 hours but intermittently drops from a nearly full signal to nothing after about an hour, am a right in thinking that it could be interferrence or am I overlooking something.
