internet disconnects

Posted: 02-10-2009, 08:19 PM
hi , i have 2 identical laptops bought last christmas for my 2 sons they are
both connected via a linksys wireless router as is the xp desktop .However
one of the laptops drops the connection after about 20mins while the other
maintains its connection.I have gone to great pains to make sure all the
settings are the same in both laptops but i still have the same
problem.Should i be looking for a fault in the network adapter? anyone got
any ideas
probably should mention the laptop in question was sent back after a week
because the power supply jack was faulty

what type of router do you have?
you could try calling linksy
or the problem could be that your wireless router cannont handle the
amount of download data that is coming from your sons laptops
