Sure. I know exactly what the problem is. In certain situations
(especially when using the recent Dell issue wireless G chipsets in
conjunction with the Netgear access points, an unhealthy high amount of
static impedance buildup occurs in the surrounding atmosphere,
particularly in areas of low and medium elevation (in mountainous high
elevation regions this isn't nearly the case) as I am sure Dell Support
has probably already explained. There a few ways to get around this. Do a
query of all wireless devices, microwave ovens, RC devices and pleasure
clubs (planes, and cars) and garage door openers. You will then need to
place such devices under the inspection of a valid, certified operator of
a high thermal stability micropower voltage reference meter. This sounds
like a great deal of effort and expense but any typical radio shack
employee could probably offer the service remotely for a fee of around 10
bucks or less (or at the very least turn you in the direction of some
inexpensive alternative.

You can try to use a static defusing device by placing large pieces of
Styrofoam on top, beside, and underneath your wireless access devices.
You might also want so smear a small amount of viscous material upon the
antenna and external interfaces of your laptop and access point. This
often fixes the problem as well.
