My computer is located about 15 feet from the router, yet I constantly loose my connection. We had a computer guy come in to check things out and he told us to return our Linksys router and get a US Robotics router. The problem continues and all the computer guy could say was to unplug the power cord of the router whenever the computer loses connection. This seems to work, except the computer attached via wireless connection disconnects about once every hour and it beomes a tedious task. Is there any simpler way to fix this problem?

normally that problem is asociated with a router being in one room and the pc/laptop in another, even though the pc says signal very good it can disconnect like that. if thats the case might be worth getting a extended ariel for your pc but if its in the same room I would assume that either the router or the NIC is faulty and losing connection. extention ariels are only about 10-20 so might be a worthy investment anyway.
