My wireless adapter keeps saying its disconnected

If the wireless router is far away this will cause drops, you need a stronger adapter, one with a larger antenna or one that has a antenna with several feet of cable so you can move the antenna closer to the source. You should also check for newer drivers, this can help.
Don't forget to use security.EX-WPA, Shared key, and so on.

Remote control won't work 10 feet away but if two feet away it works. What gives?

the remote uses light to send a signal to the tv. make sure there isn't anything interfering with the light signal. it could be dirty or the receiver could have dirt obstructing the light.

Remote works only when I'm standing really really close to the tv

the fault is probably the infra red reciecer is low gain
this is normally a small printed circuit board.
best to let a service engineer replace it

My dish dvr remote only works on satellite from zero inches away from reciever. The remote works on the tv from 20 feet away. Have tried wiggling the antenna, etc. Any other ideas?

Check your batteries.. Trust me on this it happens lol..Also do you have anything on top of the tv like a VCR or DVD player? That can cause that also. If your able too control the reciver with the remote than it could be a number of these things. Just check ubstructions anything that can be blocking it. Some newer model tv's have a light censor that causes the remo too stop working as well. If its a newer model like an HD tv this could be your issue as well

My turtle beach x4 headphones work but the sound is distorted,how can i get it to work normally again?

Try moving the receiver away from major electronic objects and move yourself closer to the receiver. Does this make any difference? If so, it's interference.

Try replacing the batteries in the headphones.
