    Hey again everyone, I'm back with a new problem!

    I setup my router (still never got filesharing to work, DSL share worked fine though), Last night I was downstairs sitting on my laptop.. when bam, the wireless drops. I figured I'd leave it, go to bed and try today - It's still not working.

    I have gone through my settings, made sure they are all the same as they were before. No change.

    It's not so much the fact that I can't get my DSL - it's that when I right click my wireless box on my toolbar, "View Wireless Connections in Range".. it's just not there.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    I will be e-mailing Linksys with my problems, but a solution (however temporary) would be great. Cheers.

    Sitting on it... of course, you've have broken it ! :grin:

    Seriously, did you try to change the channel ?
    Once, I lost the signal during 2 days without any reason !?
    I tried all the channels and now I use channel 10 which is much more powerful than the other ones...

    Thanks, I'll try that now - will keep you posted.

    Edit: Nothing - tried all 13 channels and there is no difference. For informatons sake- I've been using channel 11. I don't have security enabled (It's only a housing estate, if people leech I just login to the router and boot 'em off =D

    I'm debating wether to just buy a new router, as I'm getting more and more annoyed by the minute.

    Take care of temperature because the wireless components are very sensitive.
    On mine, I've been obliged to add a fan !

    Alright I added my house fan and pointed it at it - it's been running on it for 3 hours, the router is completely cool and the wireless is still dropped. I've changed the aerial position - still nothing. Looking on the front of the router, the lights that are on are as follows:

    Power, Ethernet 1 (My "mother comp" is on that'n), WLAN (I'm guessing that's the wireless then? :p), DSL, Internet.

    I'm guessing all that is in perfect order.

    Any other suggestions?
