    Make sure your wireless network is encrypted. You might have neighbors
    mooching off your connection.

    Hi, just wondered if anyone can throw any light on this problem that is
    driving me potty. My operating system is XP Home, and my ISP ntl. I have a
    wireless internal network card and a router and a set top box. All wired
    correctly.

    In recent months the signal keeps constantly popping, sometimes it
    reconnects immediately, but more often than not it does not. It might say
    connected, signal strength good/excellent but I take this to mean connected
    to either the pc or my ISP, but it is definitely not both.

    Under these circumstances, I have no choice but to do a frosty boot -
    switching off all plugs to the lot, even taking plugs out for at least an
    ETERNAL five minutes. Ok... not so bad if you playing pogo games (actually
    ... it is), but really painful when doing an online course.

    Kind regards, Astral
