Ive tryed so many routers and everyone ive used drops connection and got no's wot else. WHY IS THIS DAMN IT? Im currently using the Linksys wag54g and had no end of problems with it. Ive just installed that new firmware the beta 1 and looks better. 1 thing ive also noticed is that these routers get very hot after a little while of being activly used, SO ive shuved a big old fan on top of my router and so far it hasent dropped connection. I do get IE come up and say cannot display page but my download programs still download STRANGE. Ill post later with the results of this fan jobie to see if that is the problem. Just 1 thing off subject does anyone no why i have to keep typing the 'http://' instead of just www. when i type an address on my laptop otherwise is comes up error cannot open webpage or something. thanx.
