    I have just installed a wireless home network and my laptop that is
    connected with a D-Link-650+ PcMCIA WiFi 22Mbps card is constantly losing
    the signal. The primary computeris only in the next room and the little
    icon in the Task Bar says I have a "very good" signal.
    Getting my e-mail to work is itermittent at best as it cannot make a
    connection to the POP works about 25% of the time.

    Web-browsing works all the time but with a low connection rate...I tested it
    at .800 Mbps...I have a 2.5 Mbps connection.

    Primary computer works fine at high speed and no lost connections. Any
