    I have a Belkin 54g router. It uses both Ethernet and wireless connections. Whenever a wireless device uses a lot of bandwidth (e.g. downloading from the Internet, downloading from the LAN, uploading data) all wireless devices loose LAN and Internet access. Is there any way to resolve this?

    Do you mean the other wireless devices can't get a turn "talking" or do they actually lose the connection to the router?

    In the former case I don't know what you can do unless the router has the QoS feature. In the later case that seems rather extreme. Try upgrading the router to the latest firmware; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

    They don't loose connection to the router, but they can't access anything via LAN or Internet.
