Sorry to ask for help on a first post, but I hope someone may have an idea which could fix my problem.
We have a cable modem and I have recently set up a Linksys WRT54G broadband router which connects directly to my desktop and wirelessly to old laptop via a Linksys network card I purchased at the same time. All that works fine.
However even more recently I have had a new laptop from the Acer Aspire 9500 series delivered, this has an in built wireless card. However I am having serious problems with the connection dropping every 5 to 50 minutes. Which is obviously unacceptable for gaming or pokering for example and just generally annoying anyway.
I presume this means I have some problem with my laptop settings, but unfortunately I havent got the know how about what I should be altering. I wondered if it was a security thing, as I have just made it a secure network, but I'm getting no such problems on my other laptop.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
