I hope you can help me with this.

I use a desktop PC, and have recently bought a TP-Link 54 Mbps Wireless G USB Adapter (model: TL-WN321G) to connect to a BT Home Hub, which 2 other laptops connect to successfully.

The set up seems to have worked and the connection is "excellent" according to my computer. When i switch the computer on, the link and connection to the internet are both fine, and work well, but only for the first few minutes. The connection then gets cut off, with the message in the bottom left of the screen reading "connecting to site..[some numbers - IP address?], but the messgae on the screen eventually says 'page cannot be displayed'.

Now, the connection is still showing as "excellent", but this is happeneing every time, and when I restart the computer, the internet works fine again for a few minutes, but then goes off again.

Do you know what the problem is? If so, will you tell me how to fix it?
