ive had this problem for a long time now, firstly i thought it was my laptop that was the problem, then i thought i might be too far from the router but now ive got a new pc in my room upstairs and im still having the same problems.
my router is connected to my pc downstairs and on that pc the internet is perfect, always connected and at full speed.
i had a laptop in my room and the internet used to keep on disconnecting for a few minutes and then connected and worked fine for a few minutes and disconnected a few minutes later. the actual connection was there (windows showed it was connected) but the internet suddenly used to go dead now and again. i read somewhere that there maybe compatibility issues with some laptops so i thought it was a laptop problem.
i then got a pc for my room, had a usb wireless dongle lying around and connected it upto my pc, connected to the wireless network and im still having the same problems, its been happening for well over a year now and ive tried to upgrade the firmware on the router (netgear DG834Gv3) about half a year ago and had the same problems so i dont think its that.
has anyone else had the same problems? the signal is good (3 or 4 bars out of 5) so i dont know what the problem is, it might be my router?
