I wasn't really even sure which forum to post this under. My laptop seems clean, I have a firewall (AVG, woot!) and use Superanti spyware weekly. I'm connected with a wireless Intel card to our home network 98% of the time.

So the problem= I will connect to the internet and ANYTIME I go to a page that requires multiple files to load (like a kodak photo album link) or if I visit someone's page that has music on it, I loose my connection during the data xfer. I have tried to update quicktime about 5 times in the last 4 days and loose my connection before the download completes. Even when sampling music on band websites, etc. without fail, my little "connected" icon in the lower right gets the red X and then my computer searches for the signal, finally a half a minute later it will reconnect. I haven't recently changed any settings or anything. This started a few months ago and I'm running out of ideas. My roommate is good with computers and he's tried about everything, even changing our wireless connection to unsecured to help, and it has not.

So can you?

Thanks!!!

Hi Lidflipt...

Are you using a download manager or some type of web accelerator?

I think the router may have a signal booster built into it, but that’s about it..
