    We got a wireless network setup and some of the comuters that are connected wirelessly via the wireless cards disconnect pretty frequently. The only thing between the router and the computer that disconnects most frequently is 1 wall, not even concrete...any idea how to stop this from happening? Lemme know. We have a linksys 2.4ghz 54g router. Any ideas?

    Try switching channels possibly, and disable encryption if you have it turned on.

    Switch channels. Be sure to switch the channels to the same on every device.

    I'm sure you knew that, just have to say it. You'd be surprised. ;)

    For one wall it shouldn't be that big of a deal, but you also have to consider the angle that the signal is travelling through the wall. a one-foot wall at 45 degrees looks like a two-foot wall.
