    Hi. I am having frequent disconnects from my Belkin G plus MIMO router. they occur at random times, sometimes more frequent then others. When plugged directly in, there are no problems, however when plugged into the router or wirelessly connected, disconnects range from every few seconds to every 5-8 minutes. There seems to be no pattern to disconnects. Our previous routers, a D-link and a linksys also had the same problems. I have tested this with multiple computers, a Gateway, a Sony, a Dell, and an Alienware, all with similar results.

    Have you thoroughly investigated the possibility of wireless interference? Used NetStumbler or something similar as a tool?

    Do you live close enough to another living unit that there may be a 2.4Ghz cordless phone that you don't know about?
