Well I have gone the gambit with the wireless router install, solved most everything it works great for anywhere between 10 minutes to a half hour then it dies off requiring a reboot of the router then all is well for awhile. Another thing I can not open CNN World news, it looks like it is loading and displays done in the titlte bar but has a very light blue blank screen. So something is still amiss!

eeeeh I dont know a lot about wireless routers but I'd say the routers bad-probably overheating which is why it works fine for awhile untill it overheats then it locks up. try putting a fan on it and see what it does.

The router is only a few weeks old and does not run hot, I have two desk tops hard wired and my laptop wireless. It is not a heat issue as the case barely gets warm. It almost seems like it is a memory thing, it can only handle so many page changes then needs a reboot then it is fine until the next time.

And...you're saying that all three systems exhibit the same problem?

You sure it's not a firewall issue?

Any other problems with the home network setup (files transfers, etc.)?

Hi thanks for your reply, my setup is two desk tops hard wired to the 160N the laptop is wireless. I do not have the lap tops talking to each other. I have done a lot of poking around about my problem it seems as if a few are having the same issue, I am wondering if the 160 has some sort of ram issue. I bring that up as I read about the possibility, if it is a router ram issue what do I have to do.

Update! I have been poking around 160 problems on various sites, on the advice of a few I down graded the firm ware from build 11 to build 8. The connection is holding longer not sure how long but holding, the main computer which has the software on it still has the constant connection light blinking in one second intervals. Not sure where to go now, I am on my old Dell it exhibits no bad habits running off the same router as does my lap top. I posted in the Am I Infected section as one of the sites said I may have some sort of bug, I ran a deep scan on the system with KIS and found nothing. Except for the connectiong light issue the big machine seems to be working ok. I am stumped!!!!

A little more! I down graded the firmware to version 8, it cut down on how quickly the router drops the wired connection. It has not slowed the amount of flashing the connection lights do, just how much and how often should the connection lights flash when the machine is on and sitting idle while reading info on a site.

The flashing issue is on the machine with the Linksys software, the other hard wired machine stops as soon as what ever is done loading.

I don't know about your router...but a blinking light (Internet) on my router indicates that the connection is working properly.

When that isn't blinking is when the connection is broken.

The lights relative to the systems connected to the router remain constant, as well as the power light.

Louis I am probably not to good at explaining sorry! I am talking about the modem lights in my tray, the ones on my Mac modem and the 160N are constantly on the move. What is bothering me its the modem lights, they only blink on the big machine not on my old Dell. They both feed off the 160 I don't understand one having more activity then the other.
