Wifi Signal drops over time
My PC at home connections to our wifi router, using a belkin 54g desktop card.
My router is configured with WPA encryption, no limits on connection speeds, and is mac address filtered
When this pc is connected it has full excellent or very good connection strength running at 54mb/s, and this pc remains on constantly as i have one or two shared items running from it. How ever over time the connection speed drops, and occasionally the signal strength hits low. I am currently using the best channel that i can for my house, and after repairing the connection it goes back up to full speed.
I find it strange that this happens, all power save options on the card are turned off, and i havent yet managed to isolate a commonality between the times this happens, admittedly the signal doesnt drop horrifically badly sometimes it goes to 18, but the lowest can be 11. To fix it i just repair the windows connection and it works fine
(not sure if this should be in networks or hardware threat)
