Hi all,

Is there any way I can tell if my Linksys router or my Sony XP laptop is at fault?

I have a desktop and router upstairs and a laptop downstairs.  The laptop loses it's connection frequently and I have to reboot or reset the modem and router upstairs.  The desktop remains connected, but it's wired into the router.

I would appreciate any advise.

A bit late...

Without a range extender (AKA: repeater), my wife wouldn't be able to logon anywhere but the office(home). However, with the repeaters, she can even get on while outside in the yard.

Search term; '802.1 1 repeater/extender'.

Advise; The wider you expand your coverage, the more likely someone can breach your LAN. You should be sure to maintain your router's security settings/rules.

Problem solved.

The router transmits on the same frequency (2.4 GHz) as my portable phone.  The connection was lost when I was chatting on the phone while sitting in front of the laptop computer.
