I have a Belkin G Wireless Router, purchased a few months ago.
The network disconnects very often when performing large downloads, or when doing many Internet related tasks, or just randomly. In-fact, what one user is doing usually ends up disconnecting every other user from the network. However, the desktop computer, which is where the router is connected to, functions perfectly normal despite this happening.
I have the channel currently set to 6 right now. Belkin originally told me that it's the wireless channel that causes this when it is set to auto, but now is no longer the case. I'm constantly reconnecting m. I have checked my firmware, and it seems up to date, so that cannot be an issue.
So, I ask, how is this problem caused, and what methods can I use to determine the culprit? I have wireless phones in the house, yes, but with other wireless networks that I have connected to before throughout the apartment, this has not happened. I am definitely sure it has to be an issue with my configuration or with the router itself.
I am using Ubuntu Linux right now. I have another laptop that operates on Vista, and like every wireless user, experiences the same issues.
