    I have been having constant problems with my network at home for the longest time and I want to finally set things up correctly. I am constantly having to reset my router so all the computers connected to the router can access the Internet. Here is my setup.

    My router is in another room and my computer is hooked up via a hard line. My dad uses a laptop and often must connect to a VPN for his work, and sometimes he needs to access the router wirelessly. My mom also has a laptop that often has trouble locating the network and staying connected. Sometimes I will be on the Internet and everything will be fine, but then my dad will go on his laptop and suddenly I will get disconnected. This is constantly frustrating and I know it's possible to have a working network. Currently my network isn't even password protected because when I tried to set it up long ago I could never set it up correctly. I just want everything to work and the network to function properly. In addition, I also have a PlayStation 3 that is connected via ethernet cable, and I have a laptop that I would like to sometimes connect via ethernet cable and sometimes connect wirelessly.

    Can someone please assist me in setting up this network properly or at least point me in the right direction? Thanks, I appreciate it.

    By the way, I have a Linksys router.
