Default stop start wireless network?????

are you running Windows XP on the laptop? if so are you using the XP
I found that using the windows XP built in Wireless networking software that
it would drop the conection when i was right next to the AP, if there is ne
software for the Wnic i would use that, since i started using the software
for my compaq IEE802.1b Wnic ive never been dropped (unless i walk out of
range of course), my connnection has been stable as anything

I have recently set up a wireless network with a netgear ma101 usb
adaptor on my laptop downstairs being served by my netgear router

for no aparent reason the laptop drops the wireless link and doesn't even
see the wireless network.
Now i am very new to the whole networking scene, so it might be something
obvious to the experts, but it has me stumped.
I've checked all the cables etc and everything looks fine so i'm not sure

i have to set
something up i.e software.
sorry if this post is vague but i'm not very techie with comp equip.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
