Since i got a laptop, i have needed to split the internet connection in our house, so got a Netgear DG834G Wireless router. Set it up OK, and have internet access on both computers in the house now.
The problem is that the router keeps dropping its connection to the internet. The laptop is still (wirelessly) connected to the router, but no internet. It's not a problem with the wireless because the desktop computer in our house is wired to the router and when the router drops its connection there is no internet on the desktop either.
The only way i can regain internet connectivity is to unplug the router and start again. This is incredibly aggravating, as it sometimes happens every 5 or 10 minutes, sometimes even more frequently. Is there some setting or another i can change on either computers or the router (or both) in order to get the router's internet connection stable?
PS: Im not an expert at networking, so please take me through any solutions step by step. Thanks in advance.
