    The last few days, my wireless card (WMP11) has had a significant loss of signal. When I check the signal, it sometimes dips to 47%. . .and it keeps varying, w/ it's highest (rarely) at 87%. The signal was usually at least 93% and most of the time at 100%. The thing is, I am only 15 feet from the router. Nothing has been moved b/w the router and card to block the signal.

    Could any software conflicts, or something, cause such a signal loss?? Any other ideas. . .

    I have the newest drivers for the card and firmware for the router.

    Thanks!

    Well, I think I just discovered the problem. . .there might be a loose solder joint or something on the internal antenna connection. . .
