Router pinging times out

    I have a laptop connected to a wireless router ( Netgear ). The Internet connection ( 4MB
    ADSL ) is somewhat choppy, i.e. it works flawlessly for one hour and then it suddenly
    heavily slows down, only to come back after a minute or two. I tried pinging the router
    and sometimes I get 3 or 4 "request timed out" messages, before the average time goes back
    to a few milliseconds.
    Any ideas as to what could be causing this malfunction ? Bad signal ? Malware ? I
    regularly run Spybot and it finds some "red" trojans ( listed as "Firefox default"
    though ).
    Please help. Thanks.

    May be it is just the radio interference. Does your WiFi manager report
    the signal-to-noise ratio? What the reading is when the link works
    normally - and what is shown during the slow-down period?
