I have the Belkin Wireless G+ MIMO Router and for the last few weeks i have had problems with the connection. Everytime i start using the internet after 10mins it disconnects i have to then go and reboot the router and it keeps doing this. After a day i end up rebooting the router about 5-10 times. I have been on there support and its rubbish they tell me the same thing everytime. Its to change the wireless channel and i have tried all channels and no matter which one i am on it disconnectes.

anybody know the problem?

i am using vista and the router is connected to a virgin modem. I play alot of online games too if this helps and use the programs msn and xfire and they disconnect.

have you introduced anything new (cordless phone, etc.) in those last few weeks.....interference from such devices can cause connectivity issues (which is why they were having you change the wireless channels).....it is strange to be happening every 10 minutes though.....you can update the firmware on the router as well as install the latest drivers for your wireless card.....

if all else fails i would consider replacing the router

Have you upgraded the firmware on this unit?

Is it over heating?
