SO we have a desktop thats running XP and we got a new laptop for christmas thats running Vista, we also got a Belkin Wireless G Router. I plugged the router in and followed everything to a T in the instructions, and set up the connection on the laptop. I thought everything was fine cuz it said the connection was excellent, BUT after a few hours of trying to watch youtube vids, play online games, or chat on any messengers (which is all we use our computers for), I realised something was wrong. Its almost like it freezes or something, maybe hangs would be the word, for anywhere from 30 seconds to a couple minutes, and 9 out of 10 times I lose the connection on messenger and get booted off. AND to top it off it isnt just on the laptop, its both computers all of a sudden. Ive tried disabling the firewalls, did numerous virus scans, changed the power save features on the laptop, and tried setting up new connections. I unplugged the router to see if it would help the "old" computer, and everything runs smoothly but I want the laptop to work.. am I asking too much, lol. So does that mean there is something wrong with the router or do you think I have some setting maybe set up wrong? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance, and Happy New Year everyone!!
