Unstable Wireless Connection
Hey everyone, here is a bit of information before I start:
Dell Inspiron 5150
Dell Wireless WLAN 1350 Adapter
and wireless router:
Linksys WRT54G (802.11b/g router)
My wireless connection to my laptop was perfectly fine, but then I reformatted my hard drive and have been having problems ever since. It's quite strange because either the connection is really good/fast or it's really bad. There's no mid-range. For example; downloads are fast, games ping low but sometimes ping super-high, and also I can't ping most sites using 'ping x' on ms-dos.
I was just wondering if anyone had any insights as to why this was happening?
Edit: Some more information
- packet loss in games
- can't ping sites outside of ISP
- fast but unstable, high ping spikes
- downloads can go very fast (like normal) but is unstable sometimes making it go slow, but then picking up again (very unstable)
Anyone have any ideas?

step 1: make sure that you have the most current drivers installed for your wireless card.
