[QUOTE=donetao;12165699]Hi! I would try updating the wireless driver on the W7 PC first. Not sure about the XP pro. Seems strange that this happens only in your office. Does your wife lose the connection while she's in your office?? If you post the make and model, someone can
Have the latest update from NetGear. and my wife never uses her computer in my office, but my daughter does and she never has this problem. Thanks.

Also, your WiFi is transmitted across a certain "channel," if you have two routers nearby which work on the same channel then you may get problems due to interference etc. Try changing the channel that your router is using.
Sometimes a particular brand router/adapter simply don't work together, it sounds ridiculous, but we had a Compaq CQ60 (HP G60) laptop that simply wouldn't connect to our router, but it connected to others absolutely fine, and when we purchased a wireless dongle the laptop was able to connect.
Only one router in approximately the center of the house. Interference, well my two computer's are the only two affected and my home office is between my daughter's room and the router, so if it was interference surely it would affect my daughter's also. Thanks.

Update. Got the XP computer fixed, but the W7 computer stills drops from time to time though not as often as the XP did. Can't find a reason why.
Thanks for the responses, sorry for the long time before responding.
