Brought a 'Belkin Wireless G+ MIMO Router' so my mum and dad could get wireless on the laptop, all works well apart from video buffering and downloading files. they begin, but suddenly end and never resume. i have also got my pc wired to this router and it has exactly the same problem. i cant find any firmware updates and i never had this problem on an wired Belkin which i was using before this one. any help GREATLY appreciated

Did you do the time honoured routine of powering down everything , the modem , router and PC , for at least 20 minutes . This allows the modem to " forget " it's association ( via MAC address ) with whatever it was attached to before . Power up the modem , leave it to settle with no lights flashing , then connect the router and power up , again leave it to settle , finally the PC , let it completely finish booting , access the set up pages and re-do the wireless security , try accessing again and see if it works better that before .
