Well yeah its actually exactly how i wrote it in the topic description.. I have a gateway m275 it has a wireless card which used to work totally fine. It used to connect at 54mbps but now it is really fussy. Now it will connect [for about 2 min progressiely getting weaker and weaker. It starts at 54mbps..to 36mbps...24mbps...1mbps. My dad has a laptop that has a wireless card but his actually works perfectly which leads me to believe that my wireless router is working fine.. I don't know what to do it is a annoyance

Welcome to GTG.

Does this happen the minute you try to connect online (it decreases in signal)? There are no other devices nearby that could interfere right?

Try reinstalling the drivers for the wireless card.

I have tried reinstalling the driver and that didn't help..the connection decreases immediately after i connect. It goes down to 36 mbps and stays there for 2 min and then goes down progressively.
I don't know what hardware can interfere with wireless connectivity

There's nothing interfering with the connection right? Use your dad's laptop in the same exact spot/room and see if it's still ok.

Are these wireless cards detachable or are they built-in? If detachable, try using the one from your dad's laptop and insert it into your laptop's pc card slot.

Also take a look at the manufacturer's website for that wireless card you have and see if there are any updated drivers for it.
