Ok heres the setup, on my linksys WRT45G wireless router I have the following things connected:

Playstation 3(Wired Connection)
PSP(Wireless)
Laptop(Wireless)
Desktop(Wired)

Modem goes into router, which feeds directly to the computer and ps3, I get a wireless signal with the others off it. Heres where the problem comes in, sometimes when disconnecting or connecting certain devices, the connection will randomly go out on all of them, which requires me to reset the router. When it goes out, pretty much every single device tells me theres an IP problem, and the wireless won't even detect an access point. I'm a little more tech savy then most, but this is out of my range. My best guess would be there is a problem assigning IP addresses to everything on the network, but thats all I can assume.

If you need anymore info, just ask, I can probably tell.

As always, thanks for any assistance.

Hello

That sounds like a complicated system you have there. Have you looked on the router set up page to see if there is a limited number of slots available? Is it just one device that throws the system off, or is it more?
Regards,

Alan.

The router is supposed to allow up to 50 unique devices assigned an IP, and the problem is that almost anything will knock anything off.

Have you tried reseting the router? Has this problem started recently or has it been a long time problem?
Regards,

Alan.

It's been ever since I got the router, resets will make everything work again, until 1 device randomly knocks everything off.

If this has been happening since you got the router, it could be faulty.

Have you updated the firmware for the router? it may need updating
Do you have access to a spare router?
Regards,

Alan.

Firmware is updated, and I've tried it on 2 different routers, exact same model. I'm almost positive its a network setting thats causing the issues, but I wouldn't know where to start.

It is either a faulty device on the network,
A damaged power adaptor or wire, causing a surge
Incorrect network settings

Check the wires carefully, or try replacing them. What devices do you have on the network, other than the ones listed in your first post?
Regards,

Alan.

Each device can cause the outage, and all of them work fine, so fault is pretty much out.

Power adapter is new, and the wires show no signs of damage, so that pretty much leaves network settings. But I'm not too experienced in that field.
