I can connect to it without a problem then it gets dropped. Then picked up. Then dropped. Quite an annoying cycle. So I connect to my neighbor's unsecured network. The signal strength is a bit slow but I can still stream video.
What could possibly be my problem? My girlfriend's laptop has no problems connecting and staying connected.
I'd also vote on trying to update your wireless card drivers. I had problems with mine which caused my old laptop to crash and restart in a cycle. I had to disable the card to eventually install the update from a USB.

You take the piss mate, I could accept people wijacking for basic internet use but streaming video!??? That's bang out of order, although I guess one could argue that if they're stupid enough to not realise someone hogging their wifi connection then they deserve it too.
