Hey everyone,

I recently just moved in to a house with 3 other roomates. We have a wireless network set up in the room next to mine. All 3 of my roomates play the game World of Warcraft in that room. One of them is wired directly into the router, the other two connect wirelessly. When only one is in there playing, I can connect and get full signal (all green), I may get disconnected every couple hours. When two of them are playing, I can connect with full signal, but get disconnected every 20 - 30 minutes. When all three of them are in there, forget about it. I can connect (still with full signal) but get disconnected within the minute. Is there anything I can do to remedy this situation? My first thought is to run a long ethernet cable (50 footer), but if there is anything I can do other than that please let me know. I don't see how its fair for us to split the internet bill but them to obviously get so much more out of it. I'm running Windows XP and the router is a Netgear. I have a pretty decent working knowledge of wireless networking.

Thanks again for any ideas.
