You are losing the signal? If you move about the area reception will differ. I'm not sure what your question is? May things will cause a signal loss. The device location, device antenna, interference, Wireless Channel, etc. Is the wireless secured? Change NetGear Channels.
Did you try moving the wireless adapter to a different location, possibly the front of the xbox to get a better signal. Make sure nothing is interfering with signal such as objects in the way or other obstructions to line of sight between the wireless router and the xbox. Try running xbox live on a wired connection to see if you have the same problems. If still have a problem then it is a ISP or xbox live issue and not your wireless adapater.
There are a number of factors that can cause the signal of your access
point to deteriorate and the performance of your network to fall under
par. Practically any appliance that operates on the same frequency
level (2.4 GHz) as 802.11b or 802.11g can cause interference with your
wireless network. Be sure to keep cordless phones, microwaves and other
electrical equipment at least 1m away from the access point.
Try changing channels on the access point and test it out on one of the
clients. To change the radio channel on the access point login to the
configuration (usually a web based interface) and go to the Wireless
Settings (will vary depending on vendor) section, select a different
channel and save settings. On the client, go to Device Manager, right
click your wireless network adapter and go to Properties. In the
advanced tab select the Channel Property and change the Value to the
same number as the one you chose on the Access Point. Disable and then
re-enable the wireless connection. Also you can try by select the speed manually 802.11b or 11Mbps on your laptop wireless properties.
One thing to keep in mind is that there are several different router/adapter models, types, and signal strengths. If your house/apartment is older, it may have poor wire insulation. This would create large electromagnetic interference for your wireless signal. This can also happen with large appliances such as a refridgerator or generator. Wireless also has diminished returns when passing through concrete or walls made with thick/heavy material.
You may try moving the router to a different, more central portion of your residence to see if the signal improves in all areas. Try to determine which direction, from the router, it tends to have the lowest signal strength and determine what may be causing the loss of signal strength.
Aside from that, if possible test with a different router/wireless adapter. You can accomplish this by having a friend visit you with their laptop or visiting a friend's wireless network and seeing if you have the same problem. The later of that advice applies to wireless hot spots like Starbucks or McDonalds/Dairy Queen.
if you are seeing the network and are able to connect to it but it is getting dropped normally this wouyld lead to the signal not being that strong you can try to move the computer it doesnt take tot much to change the signal strength and see if the signal get' s better it should tell you how your signal is ok
Signal strength is varies depend on your position,
Hardware type, wireless provider line-of-sight (how
many obstacles that blocking the signal), and other
Make sure you connect to the same wireless spot.
Or at least go to places with wireless spots and compare
If you never have a strong signal from at least 5 different spots
(make sure you check it's the top 5 best spots you find,
ask others who connect to the spot also to make sure)
then you go to your repair shop and ask them why.
But, if you at least have 1 strong signal then
your spot just having a weak transmission.
What are you trying to connect your USB wireless device to? Is it to a wireless hot spot? or to a Wireless Access Point/Router? When you find a connection, what is the signal strength? I assume you have configured your Access Point correctly as well as making it secure. You should connect a computer to the Access Point using a network 10BaseT cable to check the Access Point configuration, especially the wireless configuration.
If you are trying to connect to a wireless Access Point and you have a weak signal, move your computer closer to the Access Point or move the Access Point to a better and higher location to give you a better wireless coverage. Note, walls can affect the wireless signals between the Access Point and the wireless network card and wireless USB device, especially reinforced concrete walls.
Try moving the access point to another spot in the house.
Also you should try changing the channel that you are on and see if that helps.
Try the below order again even if you tried it once.
Update your OS first, if not already done. Search for a firmware update
for your specific brand and model of wireless router. And see if your
computer's wireless equipment might have a firmware update available.
Sometimes these will address and fix similar problems. (Tip: Never
update router firmware over a wireless connection.) I don't know what
you're using for network security, but if applicable, try changing the
router's wireless frequency/channel to something other than default.
Experiment a bit. See if distance from router to computer has any
impact on a dropped connection. Move the router itself to a different
location in the house, if possible. Wireless connections seem to be
prone to dropping their signal. I don't know if this is any better with
the newer routers coming to market in the near future.
Please post any further comments and keep me updated and I will try to figure this out if the above doesn't work
There are two possible generic reasons I have found in reviewing internet posts.
One claims there may be a windows issue with hiding the SSID (or router name) and enabling WEP or WPA secure/encrypted wireless connections and random disconnections of service to the wireless adapter. The recommended solution is not to hide the SSID (or router name) and maintain the WEP or WPA secure/encrypted service.
Another claims that there may be an "overload" of requirements on a specific wireless channel in your area (sometimes by non routers such as wireless phones). Many routers default to channel 6. I you have a wireless monitor on a PC that shows routers and their channel assignments nearby -- if everyone is on channel 6 you may want to move to channel 1 or 11 and see if your device works better. There are some wireless routers with capability for 108mbs transmission rates that actually transmit on two channels at once that could be affecting your response so if channel 1 does not work try channel 11 or vice versa.
If other wireless hosts are connecting to the wireless router with no problem, and the windows laptop intermittently connects, then this seems to indicate a problem with the wireless card in your windows laptop. If the device is still under warranty, it should not be a problem to contact the laptop vendor and have it replaced.
