So I am trying to help someone with connections issues from about 900 miles away. It all started out fine, we got his network wireless working, his laptop connected and his PS3 connected. Then a couple weeks later both his PS3 and laptop are loosing connection. No settings were changed to cause this. His router is a Netgear router and he has cable internet. I am familiar with a few reasons why this could be happening but am concerned that I am over looking a possible cause to this problem.
-No settings were changed(that we know of, protected by WPA)
-No other interferance such as cordless phones or other devices(that we know of)
What else could cause such problems? What is the best way to 100% rule out the above assumptions? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Best thing to do is check for any firmware upgrades. Also changing the wireless channel to something other than channel 6. Try channel 11 or 8.
