I'm having trouble with intermittent connection on the WLAN interface of the router. Intermittent means that it loses connection (single packets?) all the time. Typical ping:

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.

And this is from a windows 7 laptop sitting 1 meter from the router!

LAN connection (connecting directly to the router with a cable) works perfectly - 1msec ping, no connection problems.

I tried upgrading the firmware of the router. Didn't change

Any ideas?
