Hello,
I have had a recurring problem in my home network which is when one particular laptop is running, it seems to cause my wireless network to crash for all other devices intermittently. This has continued even as i have upgraded my router from a linksys to an asus rt-n56u. It is an acer laptop that causes the problem. This only occurs when the acer is on. All devices connected to my wan will lose internet, including ipad, iphone, imac, and desktop pc. This, as i said happens intermittently, but often enough to be a real annoyance. The loss of connectivity usually corrects itself after five or so minutes. Any ideas on what could be causing this or what actions i could take would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Have you tried going into the router settings and assigning the Acer a ip address? Maybe it is a conflict.
