I've been having some trouble with my wireless internet not staying connected to the router that I'm using. It's happened a couple times in the past, but we got a new wireless router today, and after connecting it, my wireless disconnects from my connection roughly every 7-12 minutes. In fact, it disconnected as I typed that. It sometimes reconnects itself after about 30-40 seconds after it disconnects itself, but this is a rare occurrence. I was browsing the internet with a couple tabs open, and MSN Messenger running when the disconnects started to get really bad. I cut the tabs down to one, and exited MSN Messenger, but it still keeps happening.
I am using Windows 7 (x64 bit), and am browsing with Mozilla Firefox version 3.6.8. My wireless modem is from Motorola (a SB5102 cable modem), and my new wireless router is a Linksys by Cisco wireless N router. It's not new per say, our new roommate brought it in, and it worked perfectly fine at his old place. There are two other computers wired to the router, one of which is currently hibernating while my husband is at work.
I've unplugged the router waited 10 seconds, and plugged it back in (no noticeable change) , tried manually disconnecting and reconnecting the connection (no noticeable change), and reset the router (made the disconnections more frequent).
Thank you for your time.
