I had similar issues. In response, I used a power line adaptor to
bridge the connection. I used this one:
Relatively inexpensive, and it works. I had to run a windows program
to connect them (though the packaging suggests this is optional), and
I've never had any problems since. If there's a power line connection
between your house and your basement, this is what I'd recommend.

I think what we're getting at here is that if it's not a laptop,
you're probably better off with a wired connection. Especially since
there's probably a slab of concrete between your basement and the rest
of your house.
