It is probably interference from something in your house. The cordless phones sold that run in the 900MHz range can cause interference and having the wireless card antenna to close to a floor can cause problems. Wireless systems use a very short frequency that can actually reflect and interfere with it's self close to the floor. The distance from the router can also be a factor as well as what type of walls are between you the card and the router. The thicker the wall (outside house wall or brick for example) can cause degradation of the signal. Wireless signals are intended to travel a max of 150ft.
