    i loose wireless from time to time. I don't broadcast my SID and I use wep. I keep the router in G mode and I connect 2 laptops to it wirelessly. The wired connection never screws up and i use the same laptops on other wireless networks and they work fine. So i have narrowed it down to the wireless connection between the router and the laptops. I run bittorrent (with one open port) and i feel like somtimes that might overload the router. But, the connection drop happens randomly, whether or not I'm running bittorent at the time. I have updated to firmare 4.20 recently, and it was ok for about a week (only dropped connection once, and i ran bittorrent the whole time). Now it's dropping often again. I am completely out of ideas. I baught the linksys because i wasn't happy with my netgear (it would loose connection to the modem, but never the wireless connection to the laptop). Thanx.

    p.s. I tried searching, couldn't find anything useful.
