    Hi, hopefully someone can give me some tips where to look. I have just got
    a hold of a 3com wireless access point. Worked a treat for a couple of
    weeks. I was watching AVI files stored on my main PC on my laptop,
    streaming away no problem. Then all of a sudden, the AP drops down to 2mb
    across the network. This is when copying large files. On the laptop, the
    signal strength is excellent.

    I'm at my wits end trying to figure this one out.

    The first thing that I'd do is look to see who else is on the WiFi channel with
    you. Your signal strength may be excellent, but another AP may require use of
    the channel too.
