ive just had a new replacement lap top which has vista on.but now its stays connected for about 10mins then loses it for a couple of mins and the internet world sign starts flashing orange and then it connects again. its doing my head in and my sons as hes got an xbox and plays on live but its impossible as it keeps disconnecting and re-connecting. any help would be great

Try connecting it using a cable connection for a start.

what the router to the laptop or xbox?

  rawprawn 17:20 09 May 2008

The router to the computer. Sorry I know nothing about Xbox, but I assume it gets it's sgnal from the router.

yeah it all works fine with the cable as without the cable, its just that it disconnects and i have to reboot.

Is there a reset button at the back? if so use it andstart again. If that doesn't work I don't think I can help further. Maybe someone with more knowledge of routers can help.

yes ive done that loads of times, thanks for your help.

also ive noticed now that on my familys accounts they have more trouble than me, sometimes they cant connect at all but i can.

need some help big time.

Has it been ok for 3 years? That seems to be when you previously posted.
