Is your network modem, and your TV signal both supplied from a cable provider?

If so, how is the cable feed split?
Is it split outside at the cable box?
Is it split inside with a little metal splitter?
Is it run through a lighting protector before you split it?
Do you receive ALL the TV channels well or is there some (low or high numbered) that are weak?
Are your connections tight?

Are you using an X10 Video Sender receiver setup? Most wireless networks use the same 2.4 Ghz band as the wireless video senders.
Some have had luck with picking channels that do not interfere with each other. The X10 units have a small switch to set the channel. You may want to try all 4 and see if one is ok. Also many wireless network adapters have a way to pick their channel. That maybe another thing to try.

thanks for the input.
i have direct tv and cable internet.
yes i am using X10 Video Sender receiver setup.
kitchen laptop is the problem.

i have found a work around,the problem seems to be the wireless laptop in the kitchen, were the tv is.
anyhow although the problem is only slightly annoying i found by disabling the network connection on the laptop the problem goes away.So i have put the network connection (icon) on the desktop so i can disconnect and reconnect at will.
i will try the diffrent channels and get back here to let you know my findings,even though im quite happy with the work around.

Are there any new solutions to this. I am having the  same problem. When my wifi is connected lots of pops clicks. Using the wifi modem to stream netflix from pc to tv so unplugging the modem is not an option.

I have tried channels a-d no difference between them.
