I've had my router connected to the computer downstairs for about 2 years, it came with a USB adapter for wireless upstairs.
It all worked fine until the adapter fell off my desk and snapped.
So i purchased a new one, installed whatever it said everything was fine.
Then it started to drop the connection usually between 5-20 minute intervals. I think i've had go 2 hours without it dropping the connection.
In my router settings, i've tried altering the MAC adress to fit the one on my usb adapter but that will not allow me to access the internet at all.
Where as if i have it set as the MAC adress on my old adapter, the net works fine but it keeps dropping the connection..
It's a pain when watching videos on the internet because it usually drops when watching the videos.
I read that because there isn't activity going through the wireless it resets or something like that.
Any help would be appreciated, as it's starting to get annoying.
I will try my best to provide any information i can to help.
