    I use a wireless router and cable modem for my internet connection. I use a laptop and my brother uses a PS3. When we use them both at the same time (him playing online multiplayer and me just loading webpages) the internet will cut out for me and him and cut right back in. When its only one person using the internet it will never cut out. But when somebody ELSE starts doing the smallest things on the internet it will sometimes cut out and reconnect 20 seconds later. Very annoying.

    Connection Details:
    Router: Cisco Linksys E2500
    Cable Modem: Motorola Surfboard SB5120
    Network Speed: 20Mb down/4Mb Up
    ISP: Comcast

    My network speeds are enough to support well over 2 devices but these random disconnects every few minutes is a big pain for me. I've tried restarting my router and cable modem and using Ethernet connections don't work either. This could be a router/cable modem issue, but i don't know for sure. If help is there i am in definite need.

    Computer Specs:
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7
    Processor Count: 4
    RAM: 3947 Mb
    Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, 1845 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 593993 MB, Free - 31310 MB;
    Motherboard: Acer, JE70_HR
    Antivirus: avast! Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

    Also show for a good connection and for when it has "cut out" ...

    Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
    Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [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.
