I recently bought a D-Link 150 N DIR -600 router. I had a couple of mishaps in installing but eventually able to set it up eventually.

I connected one laptop ( windows xp) directly to the router (thru a wire or sumthin, its the blue cord thingy..) and connected the other wirelessly (windows vista). However, whenever I connect to either one, the internet connection on the one of the laptops eventually goes out.

Can you please help me on this? thanks.

crisGreene,

I would recommend doing a factory reset and reconfiguring the router to see if the problem persists. I would also look up the model of your wireless router to check for any latest firmware updates that are available . After trying these steps, if you continue to have problems, I would say it's definitely a hardware issue.
