Hello, i have a belkin 802.11g wireless router, version F5D7230-4, Firmware Version 4.05.03 and NTL is my ISP (10 meg cable).

The problem i am having with the router, if it is the router, is the fact that if i leave downloads going over night such as some huge game patches, by the time i wake up in the morning i will found that i have completely been disconnected, the file wont of been completed and it will take some time to let me fully browse and use the internet again again (most of the time i have to reset it), i take it that this is something to do with the router turning itself 'idle' after a certain amount of time, if im correct here how may i go about changing this? thanks in advance

Edit: I have 128bit WEP security on if this is any help. Also, i do know how to access the router settings themselves, but within i dont seem to be able to find anything about the routers idling settings.

Hey, i have the same router. There is no Idle setting. The problem might be the WEP encryption. I had problems with that as well... the connection would just drop after a while. Try using WPA instead.
