Router: dlink614+
Client : 2915ABG (Intel PRO wireless)

this problem only came up after a technician from
Dell came to replace my laptop's motherboard.
Before the replacement, there was no problem.

Desktop computer connected to router via ethernet
downloading a file from the net @ 30KB/s.

Laptop same thing same router except its connected
via wireless network card dling @ 30KB/s.

When the wireless connection temporarily drops to
0KB/s the desktop connection continues to run @

The above is evidence the problem is between the
router and the laptop.
External interference is not likely. Any ideas?

thank you

This is because Wi-Fi technology is still in its teething phase and has gone mainstream. Wireless is always going to be subject to atmospheric conditions as well as any other devices in the house that use the same frequencies - such as cordless phones for example - and other objects that have potential to interfere - such as the microwave for example.
