There's just a floor (like, the floor, not a level) between the router and this computer. Full signal strength.

I'd like to try another wireless adapter. If I change that out and still getting the issue it has to be the computer.

It seems to be some extensions inparticular. Like I can't stream or download .mov to save my life. Wont even begin to download. While .wmv seem to stream fine, and small .wmas, can be downloaded. I also can't download Apple's iTunes/QuickTime installer off the site. Again, wont even begin to download.

Doubt there's any link, but I find it rather odd. >:C

Have either of you attempted to connect your computers via ethernet cable to your router, to see if the desync still occurs? When downloading, does the disconnect only occur while downloading large files? If so, what's the size of these files?

In the meantime, you should both download a download manager; I personally use Internet Download Manager (IDM), which will allow you to resume your downloads when it is disconnected.

Could you please both check your Event Logs for any (new?) errors, or any relevant errors, and post them.

There seems to be no drops with the other computer connected to the router via ethernet. Also no issues downloading the aforementioned things like the iTunes installer. It works perfectly on that end.

Torrents have an auto-resume feature with disconnects, but the problem is the Internet connection doesn't resume until you Repair the connection (or at least disable/enable the adapter), so it's useless.

I wouldn't know what in the event log would be relevant, and I don't want to spam the whole list. Perhaps just anything referencing Tcpip/Server?

Also, if the wi-fi connection itself is dropping, it's doing it so quickly I can't tell. Never seems to actually lose signal. Will just stop loading pages during certian things. Persistent connections seem to piss it off.

Please list anything in regards to: TCP/IP, DHCP, DCOM, IP*, or anything that refers to your network adaptor.

Sorry if that's unclear, by the way. Just pasting the log seemed like a worse idea.
