Hey, dont know a whole lot of info, this is for a friend, but anyone know why if he has a wireless card on this pc, it works fine for like 2 days, then it just stops, and he has to redo everything over and over. Im stumped
Do you know what model router?
If he's using bittorrent or another peer-to-peer program, that can cause a router to lock up after a period of time and force the user to power cycle the hardware to get it to wake back up. Or it could be that the router is defective.

Just had a fellow tech lose his connection from his ISP because of torrents. They suspended him for a week for the first offense. Could it be that the ISP disconnects your friend after a significant period of activity?
