I've experienced some wireless network problems forever--the phone, random router shutdown, etc. Fine, I can deal with that, it only happened max once a week or if I brought the 2.4GHz phone too close. However, lately, I've experienced very frequent--several times per day--disconnects. However, my wireless signal still shows Excellent strength, 54.0Mbps. So this leads me to believe it's Mr. Modem's fault this time. All computers on the network lose connection. A powercycle (with it off for atleast a few minutes, no less) seems to fix the problem. But this is extremely annoying.
I went over to Broadbandreports.com I ran the Tweak Test, hoping maybe a setting was out of whack. It told me to use that DrTCP thing, and I followed the instructions in the FAQ. I set up the RWIN and MTU like it said. I ran the tweak test again, and now i'm getting packet loss and a 2+ second stall.
So I looked around here and saw it was suggested to use a WinsockXPfix as a possible fix to connection problems(i figured mine was considered connection problems). This didn't help. This disconnect happens after using Azureus (which I could understand perhaps overload with connections, i have max connections set to 100 and per torrent set to 60), BUT it also happens after regular browsing, which doesn't make sense to me, and even over night if I leave things on not (so no user network activity). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
