I have a new Toshiba notebook with built in wireless and a Linksys WRT54G router.
When I first logon, the signal strength is excellent and the strengh is 54. After a while, the signal strength remains excellent but the strength moves all over the map, as low as 1. Sometimes it will move up a bit.
I installed the latest driver for the Linksys, used Netstumbler to verify my channel doesn't conflict with others in this building, unplugged my 2.4 ghz phone nearby, uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless adapter. I changed the router to accept G only.
Every time I disconnect and reconnect, the stregth comes back to 54 but moves back down after a while. When it's at 1, Internet usage is not much good. I have a VDSL internet connection.
I am running out of hair to pull out.

Any bright suggestions?
