My belkin g wireless router keeps disconnecting every minute when i start using my laptop internet?
The router is connected to a Desktop PC through ethernet as well as receiving internet from a Virgin media cable modem. The desktop pc(win xp) internet works fine but the moment I start browsing from my laptop, it disconnects. (I own 2 laptops and the problem is the same with both). One thing i noticed is that it does not disconnect when I use my iphone 3gs to browse through wifi. I really need some help in solving this problem. Thanks in advance.
