internet problem

It seems like when i'm downloading movies on youtube or wherever, it stops downloading randomly, and doesnt start again.

when i thought to try a different movieplayer, i just started downloading realplayer, but it keeps losing internet connection. (wont let me download/install it now)

my laptop has a 802.11b internal wireless lan card.

Not sure what other info i need, but i dont hae a clue why it stops downloading stuff randomly. its annoying as hell though!

thanks

- Steve

WiFi Channel conflict with another unit or interference between the laptop and router (base) (( Possibly caused by microwave ovens, 2.4Ghz phones, etc ))

For whatever reason, it sounds like the router is dropping you.

Try power cycling the wifi router (leaving it off for 15 seconds).

I have a USR that gets VERY temperamental about kicking off 1 and only 1 node when it's been on too long and some internal counters have 'wrapped' or overflowed. A power cycle sets her right.

Try connecting to the router with a network cable and seeing if that works, if you can. You need to localize the problem.

hmm, does it even while hooked up with only a network cable...

I'll check and see if the main puter does it, it's usually hooked up directly by the network cable..

So the setup is pretty much 2wire router hooked up to phone line, belkin wireless router hooked up to 2wire and also to main puter with network cable, i run wireless off the belkin.

Do you think it's the router?...and i just realized it came with a cd for the router, think that might do it? oops...dont see why that would make a difference if it still recognizes the belking and can *mostly* connect to internet

Try connecting to the primary router with your notebook. We don't know yet where the problem is and the way to find it is to change one thing at a time and check if the problem persists.

All we know now is that the wireless connection is not a root of the problem (but the router might be).

Er... How come? You should be able to just plug a network cable into it.

if you take your computer, stick it into this Ducati Laptop bag for one hour, it will come out faster and classier than ever before.

careful though, cause it will then need LOTS of maintance.

I dunno, always needed to install that driver though with all our puters, either by finding just the driver online, or using the 2wire disc which gives you all the sbcyahoo crap you dont want/need

Otherwise, it works now running through the 2wire. Do you think it'd be the disc that came with the belkin that would cause this? I didnt think you need to install drivers if the computer recognizes the router.

...how long will it take you to need the valves to be checked/adjusted??

Typically you don't need ANY drivers for any router. They just do it to simplify setup and push software on your PC...

Well, looks like the problem is at the Belkin router. It persisted when you connected to it with a cable, and it is very unlikely that it is the problem with any sort of "drivers".

What to do next... Try touching it - how hot it is? Quite often such problems are caused when routers overheat. And it fits since it happens when you download large files - this is when routers have to do a lot of work. If it is considerably warm, try turning it off, cooling it for a while and see if it works longer before download fails.

Well, if you are out of warranty, you can open the cover (should be a few screws) and see if it helps. Sometimes such problem can be fixed by drilling holes in the cover. Alternatively, carefully put a metal bowl of water with ice on it... Just for the test purposes and be sure not to spill water over it.

BTW, quite forgot: if you're going to try the bowl of ice water, make sure it does not obstruct ventilation holes if there are any. It would be fairly useless.
