    4 computers on a home network, mix of cable and wirless connections. I loose
    internet and network signal on an regular basis on teh wireless side. There a
    few different issues to note.

    I can force the loss of network signal by dragging a large number of files
    accross the network, the network will sometimes crash. A reboot of the router
    resolves this.

    The signal sometime holds for several hours without problem if information
    is being received from the interent - say radio signals. Immediately I cut
    the downlaod and return to it I loose the internet signal, but not
    necessarily the network signal.

    When previewing available networks I can sometimes see my SSID but I can not
    log on without rebooting the router or PC or both.

    Rebooting the Router always resolves the problem but is inconvenient.

  2. Are you broadcasting the SSID? Many have reported random connectivity
    problems if this is turned off.
    Under your routers Advanced Wireless settings, try setting the "BasicRate"
    to "Any" instead of "Default." I've found this helps prevent failure of
    large file transfers over wireless.
