Mandy,

I'm not your expert.  Ask Steve what he thinks . . ..

Our router was probably four years old.

  Which number did you use?  Our router is two years old or thereabouts would 
that be too old or is it simply that it's a Belkin?

      Hi Carol.

      How did you get it set up and also which number did you use I've just 
been talking to Steve Nutt on msn about it he recommends Linksys WRT300N.

      Mandy.

        Mandy,

        For what it's worth, I had a similar problem when I introduced my 
laptop to an older router.  Until then everything was fine and I connected with 
no problems to both the main computer and two BrailleNote machines on a regular 
basis.  When the new laptop came along, things were bad and, like you, the 
router would go out every few minutes for no real apparent reason.  I figured I 
couldn't find the problem and, in the end, went for a newew Linksys router.  I 
haven't looked back since.

          Hi I'm still grappling with problem and without a solution I just 
have to reboot every ten minutes or so.

          Someone suggested I try using the laptop in same room as router - 
makes absolutely no difference at all.

          I'm currently using hardwired but this is not a workable permanent 
solution at all.

          Even when the laptop loses internet connection it still says wireless 
connected with strong signal strength.
          I don't know who to ask or how to go about finding a solution.
          The Router is Belkin 54G.

          Anybody know how complicated or otherwise a firmware upgrade is?
          I do have a link that takes me to it on the desktop or at least I 
think it does.

          We've seen routers which don't seem very expensive but then I still 
don't know who will set it all up for me.

          I'm tired of problems I just want to use this laptop with none.
          Okay so I can't link directly onto links in emails and none of the 
solutions have helped but it's a minor problem and although annoying I can live 
with it.

          Mandy.
