For spyware I use Spybot and Ad-AwareSE between the two of them they do a good job of keeping things clean. I use AVG from www.grisoft.com for my Antivirus program again another good one, it found a couple that McAffee had let slip thru I also periodically clear out the cache and toss the cookies and start over.

I deal with wireless here at the convention center. Your connection to your access point is 56 mega bits per second. Wireless 802.11 technology is not really efficient so your actual throughput to your access point is probably in the 30+ mega bit range. Plenty fast though and normally faster than your Internet connection.

What you are describing sounds a lot like interference issues. Either from another 2.4 gigahertz device or potentially someone else near you with their own access point that is transmitting on the same or close by channel.

Wireless telephones, microwaves, and other devices using the 2.4 gigahertz bandwidth are known problem makers. Just last week we had an exhibitor who brought in a wireless mike and an access point, sat them side by side and couldn't understand why her Internet connection went to pot every time she started talking.

If you have not relocated your access point recently or added another wireless device near the access point, the problem could be a neighbor who just added their own.

Go into the set up of your access point and see what channel you are using. The channels run from 1-11. We normally advise folks to use 1, 6, or 11. By the nature of the bandwidth and channels, use of these 3 provides the optimum of separation. So in effect if you use channel 2, it will most likely bleed from 1 and 3. If you are on 1 right now, go to one of the other two, 6 or 11 and see if that takes care of the problem.

That's pretty scary, Aaron. That's the exact same softeware I use. If anybody needs to get copies of that software, look at Kim Komando's Web Site: www.komando.com, look under Kim's shareware, favorite picks. Be careful to spell the name of the website correctly, from what I understand, you can end up in the (really) wrong place with various misspellings.

Lamar also has some good advice, try bypassing the wireless and go a wired connection. This will eleminate some type of RF problem or intruders. Make sure the wireless is set up to disallow outside intrusion by your neighbors. The instructions that came with the wireless equipment should tell you how to do that.

Somebody else mentioned that DSL is susceptible to interference from outside radio/electronic noise. When you got your equipment from the phone company, you should have gotten several "filters" that plug into the other phone jacks in your house. Check and make sure that each phone has this filter, and that it is plugged into the phone jack securely. You might try disconnecting them one at a time around the house and see if possibly one of the filters has gone bad for some reason.

Hope this helps.

Jim

Actually the filter is to remove the tone produced by the DSL modem. If you don't have the filter in on the line servicing the telephone, you will hear the tone that the modem puts out. That does remind me also of someone who reversed the plugs. They had the DSL modem plugged in the phone side of the filter and the phone in the DSL modem side. The DSL modem worked although it was extremely slow.

Great minds... I have been on AVG for about 5 years and the antispyware for about 4.

I don't have filters on mine they ran a separate set of lines, I have two diffenent jacks in the house. One for DSL one for telephone. I had forgotten about the microwave as a source of interference. IIRC it seems to affect the "b" worse than the "g" but can get to both of them. Anyhoo amongst this vast pool of knowlege (and some of it is even true ) hopefully you will find the right answer, and they said we wouldn't amount to anything
