Right, first of all, there are probably similar threads related to mine, but they're similar, not exact, and I REALLY NEED TO get to the bottom of this pain in the ass issue with the router I got off a friend.

Bascically, long story cut short, (any other details required, just ask. For now, I just want a simple explanation) my Belkin router randomly cuts connection, it'll either totally disconnect or it will have tell me it has limited connectivity or none at all. Now, I find that this happens everytime I try using uTorrent on my two laptops (which are the two systems that are connected to the internet through the router) after 10mins into the download. It also happens every few hours.

Is there any reason? Is it time I invest in a new Router?

I have a Cable/DSL connection, which is connected through Ethernet on my computer and the Belkin Router is connected accordingly, which how the two Laptops are oonnected through.

(Sorry for sounding like a 'noob'. I'm not 'that bad', just Wi-Fi baffles me!)

1. Hardwire one of the laptops to the router and see if same issue happens.
If it does.....
2. Get the router out of the picture (just for few hours). Hardwire one of laptops straight to the modem and see how it goes.

I hardwired the router to one of my laptops and the internet doesn't work at all. On the hard-wired laptop, I get "unidentified network,no network access" and the 2nd laptop says "limited or no connectivity"

However, the 2nd step, I've done before, as my PC has sometimes failed with me and it works perfectly fine, just connect the ethernet cable to the laptop and voila.

It looks to me like a new router is due.
