I have a netgear DG834G adsl modem/router. This mostly works fine ( apart from when it powers down the wireless broadcast if its not connected to anything for 10 mins and I haven't found a way to stop it doing this!) I have a belkin 54g pcmcia wireless nic in my laptop . This is very reliable and works every time. I have Belkin 54g PCI wireless nics in my workstation PC and my HTPC . The workstation one works fine 99% of the time. The one in the HTPC is very unpredicable. Sometimes it works just fine ...other times it doesn't see anything to connect to whilst the other machines have no problems whatsoever. The HTPC is in the same room as the netgear router ( seperated by about 10 feet). The HTPC is in a cabinet and so has the full length of an LMP case between it and the wireless antenna. Its also in close proximity to a yamaha amp and there is a plasma not too far away either. I've ordered a replacement antenna for the wireless nic in the HTPC and also one for the netgear to allow me to position the antennas independantly of the kit itself. I'm hoping this will do the trick otherwise the only thing that occurs to me is a conflict with one of the other cards in the HTPC and I'm not looking forward to yanking and shuffling cards about in order to get the wireless nic a bit more reliable. Any other suggestions?
