Lately my wireless connection has dropped to very low to low signal. It shows i'm connected and the speed is 24Mbps. I have just bought a new router (thinking the old one was done) The new one is d-link dir 615. Its a 802.11N
I am running windows xp

Does the signal get stronger as you move towards the router? Was your last router 802.11N or just 802.11G. Have you tried moving the wireless router and adjusting the antennas?

It also keeps going to no signal for awhile and then it will go to low and sometimes very low.

Do you have any microwaves or cordless phones in the area? One thing you can try is to temporarily unplug any cordless phones, microwaves, etc in the area and test the signal strength again. That will tell you if you are having interference problems.
