Anytime I try to stream anything on my laptop over wireless, like Youtube videos or any other streaming video my Router just gets a slower and slower connection until it just completely drops my connection. The signal strength is listed as "Excellent", but the mbps just drop. Most of the time windows just reconnects automatically with no problems, but other times I have to do the Modem/router reboot trick. When I am not streaming, the connection is just fine at a steady 54mbps.
My desktop pc is hard wired through the router and has far few issues with streaming although it does also drop me occassionally.
Is it time for me to get a new router, or is there anything else I can do?
