For 2 weeks i have been tinkering with my network because it is so very unstable, i am using a Linksys Bef11s4 ? wireless router in the main room of my house which is WIRED to my mom's Pc and Xbox360, (Those are stable connections) now upstairs i have a USB D-LINK dwl-g120 wireless pluggin (rectangle unit with a rectangle antenna) which i get 4/5 to 5/5 bars of signal strength. and good speed, anyways at random times which could be every 10 mins or every hour it will just have a connection "fart" where it will drop for a second and reconnect, now i play online games where this is my worst nightmare to drop randomly at any time. so this is what i have done. BTW - I run Windows XP with SP2 on each PC I have changed the redial timer, i have downloaded the hotfix patch for SP2 (did nothing) have played with the windows zero config. HAVE power cycled many times. etc. Downloaded/installed driver updates Upgraded the firmware. played with many settings <incert here = P > I know this isnt my ISP because its just affecting my upstairs PC and nothing else, i remember using wireless a few years ago and it ran great and now getting back into it just recently when i moved my PC upstairs its been a nightmare to do anything other than surf the net. Ps - Sorry for gram. and spelling.
