Alright, facts first. I have a wireless router[NETGEAR something or other] which is still fairly new and currently used fine by the things listed in the topic description. It's broadcasting with WEP security. Yes, I know it's obsolete but it's all the DS can use. And the people around here a stupid enough to connect to an unprotected network, but not smart enough to connect to a WEP one.

The issue here is Windows. Windows XP I couldn't get it to connect, Windows Vista on my girlfriend's laptop I couldn't[managed to in the end though...it was a fluke and I don't remember exactly how.] and now I'm trying out Windows 7 with similar issues. It can connect, I'm even writing this up while on it; but it never stays connected long. I'm not entirely sure why it decides to drop the signal now and then before picking it up..but it's very annoying.

Has anyone got any general or Windows 7 based tips for me? It CAN connect, just need to get it to STAY like that. ;P
