I'm having a problem with the reliability of my wireless network connection. I can always wirelessly connect to the internet just fine whether it be at school, home, or an internet hotspot. My problem is that my connection is constantly going in and out. My internet browser will be serving up websites just fine for 4 or 5 minutes but will then pause for maybe 15 seconds and then begin working as usual after the pause. I also notice this with online games, email, instant messenger... the works. The odd part is that I will sometimes go for days without any problems and then, without changing anything, the pauses will come back. Maybe this is just a constant problem with wireless connections--I really don't know! All I know is that when I plug in directly to the router, I experience no problems, but when I connect wirelessly my connection becomes unreliable.
My wireless card is the Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter. As far as I know, it's the initial wireless card used in systems labeled Intel Centrino. Oh, and it's 802.11b.
Like I said, maybe this is just a common nuisance with wireless connections, but it would be nice to hear otherwise!
