Wireless issues



Can anyone suggest why wireless connections randomly drop out when there is good signal? The first problems occurred when on my home network, but now, the computer I've set up for a friend is doing the same on their home wireless network. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can look at. In this situation the signal is strong and the moment I start to send/receive e-mail, it just drops out. My home network is all W7 machines, the other network is mainly Hissta. I'm looking at running a network cable, but that isn't the prettiest solution given the location.

Bumpity bump!
Still a problem. My issues have settled down, but friend's is still a problem, I was thinking RFI, but her connection is also connected to her shop internet computers which are pay per use wireless machines and they work fine. Watching the network and sharing centre as I try to send an e-mail from her machine and it suddenly drops the connection for no apparent reason. Wireless signal is still strong. Her e-mail client is Incredimail so I can't even blame Outlook (my client), which, from research, appears to have some issues.

I'm on XP, but when my wifi starts dropping signals I go into device manager and delete (by right clicking) the wifi adapter (in my case it's a laptop and it's called Intel Pro Wireless 2200BG network connection).

Then restart. It will automatically re-install the driver.
