WiFi connection drops when transferring large files locally

    Basic situation, have windows file sharing set up on all 3 pc's.
    One bedroom PC(XP), one laptop(XP) and one MC PC(Win 7).
    When I try to transfer a large file from either the bedroom PC to the MC PC or from the laptop to the MC PC, after a few mins the connection drops.

    Transferring large files, usually get about 800KB/s up to about 1.2MBps, then soon the connection drops and I have to reconnect to the network.

    Using a ZyXel router provided by Vodafone.

    Help? Any better ways of doing this other than Windows file sharing?
    Or router settings? Getting pretty pissed off that I can't transfer a few files between PC's :mad:

    I wouldnt use Wi-Fi to transfer large files at all. I tried transferring my photos to my NW hard drive over the wireless network and ended up with loads of 0kb files. WiFi isnt perfect, it is open to all sorts of interferences. I would recommend transferring large files accross a physical connection only.
