I have a bitcoin rig hooked up to a weakly received wireless connection.  The clients will say "connection problem" and it will sit there for a 1-3 seconds before it hooks up again and keeps mining.  Is this a problem?  Is it going to slow down my mining?  If it does or will negatively affect then I will hook it up to a wired line.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

It repeats this behavior every 10-15 seconds or so.

This probably is slowing you down, so I would get a wired connection going. Depending on what pool you use, you can check to see what your "effective" hashrate is on their end and see how it differs from what your miners report on your end. Keep in mind, though, that the hash rate reported by your pool is only estimated, so it is bound to differ from what you see on your end.

Same as here, resolved by getting a good USB wireless adapter, the  one that have signal booster so it can gain more signal from ur router

the connection issue are absolutely a problem.  especially on very short rounds.
