For some reason my wireless internet connection cuts out periodically. I can not understand why this is happening. I am using a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter (WMP54G).
The connection status says it is active however when I open a web page it loads for around 15 seconds before timing out. The only way I can fix this is by repairing the connection, which is very frustrating.

Please help!!

What ISP are you with??

It looks like Xnet is playing up again.

Oh, TelstraClear (Paradise).
I also just recently moved my PC to somewhere where it gets slightly less reception, but at 78% signal strength it shouldn't be acting up like this...

I would say its in the wrong place.

Even tho its saying 78%

So, the wireless youre using is a wireless network connection, or is the internet connection to Telstra wireless as well?

Theyre 2 different things.

The connection I am using on this PC is wireless. It goes through another computer connected to the TelstraClear cable.

I agree with Speedy- also you could try another adaptor, I use the ASUS WL-167G for marginal reception locations it comes with swivelling connectors.

Its a program, search for it in google. I think its only a trial, unless u pay for it.

Any way, my wireless connection basically just doesn't connect to the internet at random times. The connections status says its okay, but I can't access the internet, it just loads before timing out.
