I am on a wireless router, and for some reason every 2 hours and 38 minutes it resets (I get kicked offline). Even when I was on just a regular router it did it. Why? And how can I stop this from happening? I use Windows XP and I have a D-Link Router and wireless card.

Do all the machines get disconnected? Are you being disconnected from local networking, or just the Internet?

I am not sure about the other comps, and it is just the internet

Are you the only machine using the wireless router? If not, the "other" machines I was talking about would be the other users.

You have to access the router configuration. Most of them have a web interface you can access by typing it's eternet address into your web browser. There should be a DHCP screen there.

The DHCP lease length shouldn't affect a properly functioning workstation. For testing, I've set the lease time on my network to 1/2 hour, the shortest length possible with my router, there was no noticable difference. Since a properly operating DHCP client should request a lease renewal automatically when 1/2 the lease time is up, it's hard to imagine the DHCP lease doing this...

WHat sort of broadband connection do you have? If it is DSL, is it running PPPoE?
