    I have a belkin wireless router/modem running our home network. We connect using 3 android devices, a wii and wireless printer with no problems. However, when connecting using either a windows 7 or windows XP laptop the internet connection is lost after a couple of minutes.

    I can't work out the cause of the problem but resetting the router gives a couple of minutes of browsing before it goes again. I have tried using static IP addresses for the laptops but this hasn't helped, furthermore I have tried a winsch reset.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as my wife has an assignment due in soon and needs to do some research online.

    try changing channels in the router and remove all you can that could be causing interference or the router as far away as possible from interference

    Does that problem happen only when connecting a laptop by ethernet? Or only by wireless? Or both ways?

    For one of the laptops please post for a connection and for when it has been lost ...

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and show ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:


    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
