Router Disconnects

  stuh90 00:57 30 Jan 2008

Hey guys

I just purchased a new Modem-Router, a ZyXEL Prestige 660HW-t1 v2, to be precise.

Well, I eventually configured everything and found that my PC was able to connect to the internet, along with my laptop, which was able to connect through wireless.

However, I keep becoming randomly disconnected every 2 hours on average, but my router still acts as if it's still connected, and so does my pc, except web pages, ventrilo, MSN, games, nothing web based will load.

I have to Restart my router every time, and it effects both my laptop and my Pc, and it does effect my pc even when my laptop is not turned on or connected to the internet.

I am wondering if theres any solution to my problem? I've been trying for a few months to get both my PC & my laptop connected, buying wrong routers, faulty routers, you name it, nothing seems to be going right.

Please help me?
