    My girlfriend and I have a Belkin wireless router connected to our comcast modem. Im wired to the router, she has a Dell Inspiron E1705. Her internet will randomly drop (No loss of wireless connection, just the internet its self.) This is driving both of us insane. Any Ideas??:confused:

    Well, what makes you think there is no loss of the wireless connection?

    Some things you can try here.

    1. Change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
    2. Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
    3. Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

    Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

    Thanks, I changed my channel. Have yet to really test it yet, I will test it tonight. As far as updating the firmware.. Everytime I try to update it I get an Error. Unable to continue because of too much traffic. I have nothing plugged into the router except me when im trying to do the update.. So I dunno what kind of "Traffic" I could be causing.

    I think my best resolution would be to throw Belkin out the window. :D
