Hello. I just got a Linksys router with 4-port switch. I have 2 computers hooked up to it. When ever i run a program such as kazaa, kazaa will connect to the internet for about 10 sec then my whole internet goes out. How do i fix this?

I'd start by resetting the router back to factory defaults and starting again with the configuration. Also, check for any firmware updates for the router.

FWIW, I had a D-Link DI-614+ that refused to work, I finally took it back and got a replacement, I'm typing through it now. :D It was simply defective, and I was just spinning my wheels...

Frequently, the most obvious solution is also the correct one. :D
