I hooked up the network at my GF's aunt's house. 2 computers. Computer 1 is where the wireless router and DSL modem is. Computer 2 has a wireless PCI card. Both computers have Windows XP. #2 would get a signal from the router. Sometime it would be good like 54Mbs, sometimes 11Mbs. The internet would work, but sometimes it's fast (DL file @ 80 kb/sec) and sometimes it's slow (DL file @ 5kb/sec). #2 woud disconnect from the network every 5 minutes or so. I would have to reconnect. I don't know why it's doing this. I don't see a reason why it would. The computers are not far away from each other. Maybe about 50ft. Also, the computers can't see each other. #1 and #2 would not see each other's shared folder. I thought this shit was supposed to be plug and play. If she can deal with one wire running across the hall, I might just return the wireless shit and get a regular router.
