    The reason for the drops is the low signal strength I would guess.

    Refreshing the IP addresses on the main computer that has the router / modem connected seemed to fix the problem... but if i knew what this was actually doing and if there was a permanent fix for the problem, that'd be better.

    haha, i wish i could say the problem is solved.. I'm just not certain that the issue is solely due to poor signal

    My approach is to solve one problem at a time. Since the weak signal is an obvious issue, I would solve that first, then if there's still an issue, maybe it'll be easier to track down. Having an obvious potential issue that isn't being addressed makes it hard to know if all the other stuff is just spinning our wheels.
