    Also on the router; some give you the choice of AES or TKIP. AES is better, but try both.

    Right now I'm on WPA2-PSK TKIP and seem to be connecting very reliably. I had it set to open while working on the problem but once I got a reliable connection I switched WPA2 back on and had no problems connecting. So far, it seems to be working well. But if it starts to act up again, I will try switching to AES or MAC filtering and see if that improves the situation.

    Hope it stays that way. But if not, we'd be keen to dig more! Thanks for the feedback.
