im connected through a router... whenever i leave my comp for awhile, it d/c on its own... however at times when i leave it on throughout the nite, nothing happens... on both occasions, i have diablo 2 running in the background...

another problem is whenever im playing game, i keep getting the lag... i was told its due to wireless connection... im a room apart from the main server... and i was told that wireless connection tends to lag whenever im playing game... however, it is possible to configure it... but i've no idea wad should i do... any help there?

thx in advance =)

I suggest trying to connect to the router with an ethernet cable and check to see if you still get disconnected. If you don't then we have narrowed it down to a wireless problem. If you still do then we need to test out other areas.

hmm, wad do u mean by ethernet cable? connecting through the modem? the modem is in another room so its pretty impossible... and from wad i can undestand, my bro, whos using that computer, never has any problem with auto d/c... so its definately the wireless router's problem...

recently i tried it out, but has yet to confirm... heres wad i noticed... if the connection signal is very good, i cant surf the net at times... have to keep refreshing and hopefully it loads... however if the signal is excellent, i have yet to experience any problem with that.. and right now, after 2 tries of excellent signal, theres no d/c wadsoever...

i suppose excellent signal is the key here... however, not everytime i can get that signal.. any advice and having excellent signals everytime i log on?

thx

I really don't know how to receive excellent signals everytime. Wireless communication can be interrupted by a number of things, such as microwaves, tv's, radio's, phones, or the neighbor's wireless setup. What I meant by using an ethernet cable is to take your pc to the other room where the wireless router is located and connect directly into it with a cable instead of connecting to it through the airwaves. If you still get disconnected then it's not a wireless problem.

Well it may just be the wireless adapter in your pc. Maybe try swapping with another one if you have another one.

Like I said before, I'm not sure if there is a way to guarantee an excellent signal all the time. There are many factors that can interfere with a wireless network. Maybe someone else knows some sort of trick to getting excellent signal strentgh. The only way I can guarantee you "excellent" signal is to use a cable instead of airwaves ;) Or move closer to the router.
