    Hi all,
    I am new here and dont know a lot about computers. I have a laptop with an aolynk router and a 3com wireless system. I have no pc just 2 laptops hooked up to my internet.
    The internet works fine but disconnects every now and then. There is no pattern i can see (ie.every hour or every 10 mins etc) it justs disconnects but saying limited or no connectivity.If I click repair it doesnt work i have to disconnect both the router and the wireless modems to get it back on.
    Can someone offer me any advice please.

    Not big on wireless, had nothing but problems with it in our house as well. Go wired if at all possible.

    Try changing channels first, you may have wireless interference. If that doesn't do it, upgrade the router to the latest firmware, and do a factory reset and reconfiguration.

    To do a factory reset, most routers require the reset to be held for 10 seconds or more with power on.
