Connection drops frequently.

Hey guys and gals,

I am having issues with my internet connection. For some unknown reason, my connection will drop frequently. I am using a Linksys WRT54G router. Connected to it are 3 desktops (via cables), a Xbox 360 (wireless), a laptop (wireless), and a PS3 (wireless). I have been noticing that it seems to drop the most when I am on my Xbox 360 trying to play games online. When I first sign in to Xbox Live after turning on my Xbox, it will usually drop me right away and I have to sign back in. I've been playing Call of Duty Black Ops and I have been noticing that when I try to join a game, it will join but then kick me out because a loss of connection. I can then re-join the game and it usually won't have any problems. My brother claims similar problems with his games on his desktop. I have tried restarting both the router and modem but I am still having the same issues.

I don't know what other information you need so I can answer any other question you may have. Thanks in advance for all of the help.

If you are experiencing the issue on multiple devices, I would suspect it's a problem with the router or your modem. Can you try a direct connection to the modem and see if you still experience the issues? Have you looked into a firmware update for your Linksys?

I had this problem about a year ago with my old D-Link where it would randomly dump my connection for no reason. After wasting about 3 hours trying to diagnose and repair the problem, I ended up buying a new router which fixed the problem.
