Hey everyone. I've had this question for a while now but am just now to finding out the answer (this is my first post on the forum so I hope I'm in the right section:confused: ). Anyway, I've got cable Internet, the modem is kept downstairs as is the linksys router. I'm on a desktop computer and my two roommates are on laptops; we all use wireless methods to connect to the Internet from upstairs: I use a USB stick, one uses some "Airport" thing for his Mac and the other has an integrated wireless card for hers. Anyway, a lot of the times when my roommates either open or close their laptops, Internet is wiped out completely and it takes a good while to reset everything and get it all back up and running. I was wondering both WHY this happens and if there is any way to stop it from happening? I hope I'm not being too vague, and hopefully someone here knows what's up. It's a real pain in the ***!

Thanks a lot for any insight

Thats the same setup I had, a cable modem and even a Linksys router. I too was having a problem with losing my internet connection jsut dropping and having to reboot the router, I've now replaced the Linksys router with a D-Link router and no more issues. My router was simply broken.

Does everyone loose their internet connection? If so then you too may a new router.
