Wireless Connection drops

Running a Toshiba laptop, with an internal Intel wireless. It works great for 30 secs or so, then loses connection. I do the windows repair connection, and it works fine. For 30 secs. Then I have to repair connection again.

I have tried it with first automatic IP address, then with manually set IP address. Same problem. The internal wired connection works fine.

Wireless router is a dlink DIR-625. AES encryption is in use.

Any thoughts?

Try changing the channel number for your router's wireless, preferably somewhere between 8-11.
Your wireless laptop will find the new channel automatically so no need to alter anything on that.
