Can someone help? Router Problems...
Posted 06 November 2009 - 08:27 PM
I put the install disc in both my computer as well as my parents' and everything seemed to go fine. Downloaded the 'Network Magic' program and everything. But ever since we got it, the internet connection on my computer seems to be REALLY crappy. I can't stay connected for more than 10 minutes at a time before Network Magic pops up and says I'm disconnected from the network. My parents don't have any problems near as often as I do. I'll be surprised if I can get this posted on my first try.
I've asked a friend of mine who is going to school for networking about it, but he was baffled. My Xbox Live works perfectly except for the occasional network errors that happen only on Halo 3. Wii online seems to work fine too.
Does anyone have any ideas? It's driving me nuts.

Sounds like the signal strength of your laptop is shit. What is windows reporting your signal strength to be? Also, what sort of security are you using (again, I'm assuming network magic did most of the configuration but at the very least told you what it was doing.)

Daphatty: No, actually, Network Magic didn't tell me anything it was doing. I pretty much stared at a progress bar while it did all the work.
I've checked the site for newer firmware, but it seems my router already has the latest.
