Hi. I have a wireless B router(I dont use the wirelessness) Whenever I hook it up to my other computer or ps2 online it never works. Like it will work for a few then start disconnecting(like on aim and other stuff like that) Then eventually it will disconnect all together. What should I do? If its the router what new router do you suggest.

if things keep disconnecting etc, then it sounds like a network bandwidth problem. I would have thought that most new routers can manage this easily - like allocating a certain amount to each computer connected to the internet/network via it.

You dont necessarily have to get a new router, just find the problem - the computer or device which is taking up too much bandwidth.

Is it a Linksys wireless B router or a wireless router + 4 port switch? If so, then it may be a problem with the router not being properly configured.

Ughhhhh. We've had to replace our Linksy twice in less than a year. They built some of the crappiest routers. I cant say whats good, but I can say that Linksy is crap.

As I say, some people just have bad experiences with certain makes of stuff etc, some are extremley unlucky if it happens again but most of teh time you wont get any problems:p

I have to say I haven't had good experiences with linksys. I had a WRT54g thatworked for about 8 months. Main complaint though is the lack of quality in the actual casing. I realize it only needs so much but when you pick up a linksys product (physically), it just doesn't have the weight that I would expect, kinda like the difference between toy handcuffs and real handcuffs. They feel like toys. Could I get some metal in a product. . .please. :D
