    I'm not a network guy, so I have little clue. Could it be because my Internet connection is dropping every now and then that I am noticing only now?

    Are there any open source monitors that can be used to identify these drops, so that I can complain to Virgin?

    Couple of years ago, I invested in Powerline Wifi access point or something as recommended by VirginMedia - NETGEAR PLW1000-100UKS 1000 Mbps Powerline Ethernet Wifi Adapter Homeplug Access Point, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 b/g/n/a, (1 Gigabit Ethernet Port): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories. Will it become a complete waste now?
    The original issue could be that that laptop was using 2.4 GHz which is prone to interference from devices such as microwave ovens etc. In any even, any serious work should be done via cable only.

    Drops and grey-outs are invariably caused on the wifi side, not the ISP side.

    Most definitely true. ISP do of course have outages, but these tend to be hours or days in duration. Dropouts in the seconds or minutes time frame are invariably at the router / wifi. Good quality CAT 7 cable and 99.9% of these issues are resolved.
    You above all people should know probabilisitic analysis is a stochastic process of independent of deterministic variables subject to constant change....
