Sounds like one of your Neighbors may have gotten a Wireless Router or a Cordless Phone that uses the same channel. If they are on the same channel as your router, you will get Noise from them. Try changing your Wireless Channel to 4 or 9 or any channel except 6 which is the default for most routers. You could also use the following software to look at all of the wireless signals around you and to see where your signal cuts off...


Its free.

Hope this helps. Other options would be to get a directional antenna because if your router is not in the center of your house you are losing half of your signal to the out side.
