Hi, I have a PC connected to bt broadband via bt's router, this is no problems and always runs smoothly, but I use my laptop which is connected to the router via a belkin network usb connecter, I have terrible trouble staying connected with my laptop, it cuts off the internet sometimes every two mins. other times it will stay connected for a couple f hours before disconnecting, it is off a lot more than on?? e.g. it has cut off 3 times just whilst I am typing this message??I dont have this problem with the man PC so I assume that the Belkin connector is playing up or do you think it's BT's fault.I run the PC on windows vista and the laptop on xp home....Thanks

Are both computers connected to the router at the same time whilst they are both switched on or have I misunderstood? Which model router is it?

Yes both macines are turned on, the PC is on all the time, the router is the latest one from BT...
