    hmm, another option is to change the channel on your router. This might cut out some interferance. If that doesn't solve anything, then it is will most likely be the card. How many times has it disconnected?

    If you have a 2.4GHZ cordless phone it will interrupt your wireless signal.

    I didn't think about the phone. Another one that causes interferance is a bluetooth card if you have one. It shouldn't cause any problems, but I've noticed on mine that when my bt is on - my wifi disconnects sometimes.

    Change the channel on the router to 1 or 11, 6 is usually the default and therefore will get interference from other routers around you. 1 or 11 are the strongest signals. Also download the intel drivers from the intel site, they were alot newer than the dell drivers and work a lot better.

    location. location. location. ;)

    Read the bottom half of this page about dropped connection issues. There may be nothing wrong with your wireless NIC's driver.
