    well, belkin is prob #1... crappy shit.

    but change the wireless channel and see if that helps.

    What's the signal quality like?
    How far is your PC from the gateway?
    and how many walls and how thick are they between your PC and Gateway?
     
  4. it was $15 marked down from 125 i couldnt resist. and edit: its not the wireless thats having problems, its anything connected to it by any means. wireless signal is great just it will stop for 1 second and disconnect you from shit

    did you read my fucking post?

    first of all... You think there's a correlation between it being a pile of shit, and being marked down 88%?

    secondly, signal strength has almost nothing to do with interferance... Now either get the fuck out of the forum, or stop being a tool and try what I said.

    Don't ask for fucking advice if you're not gonna take it.

    OK, so you're PC is wired to the the wireless router right?
    IE, from a Normal NIC on your PC to the network ports on the router?
    If so, how long is the network cable?
    Sometimes, depending on the quality of your network cable, more than 10 metres can effect the quality.
     
  8. 30ft

    <10 meters

    ok, 32 ft is about 10 metres.
    Well, it MIGHT be that.
    I would try an experiment, try moving your PC temporarily closer to the router and using a much shorter cable adnd see if that helps.

    It could be a lot of other things that are causing this problem, but this is worth trying.
