Wireless connections

Hi all

Since the first version of windows 7 was released to the public back in Jan 09 i have been using windows 7, and having upgraded from the beta, to RC, and then to RTM with clean installs. I am now having problems with low signal strength on my wifi card in my laptop, it is up and down in strength even though i am not moving the laptop and sometimes drops the connection.

It never had this problem in Vista which is what came pre installed on this laptop or the earlier versions of seven.

The Wifi card is an Atheros one which is common to alot of laptops.

Can anybody advise to what could be the problem, i am thinking that it is a driver issue even though i have updated drivers direct from microsoft through windows update.

Thank you.
