I have two desktops connected via a wireless LinkSys router. They were running fine for about 6 weeks, but for the past 2 weeks both computers are experiencing the same problem. Both computers have XP, and the router is connected to DSL.
I can surf using IE for about 1-3 minutes. After this time, I can not open any more pages. I either have to click on the LinkSys icon and repair the connection (to get another 1-3 minutes) or wait around clicking refresh until the new page is displayed. The odd part is, I can play poker or talk on AIM even while IE isn't responding, as long as the poker table or AIM was connected before the problem started. If I try to switch tables during the problem it won't let me.
So the connection between the two computers never falters, and the DSL never cuts out (or the poker/AIM would stop also). I'm thinking that there is a problem with the routers settings, but I don't know anything about routers. What do you guys think?
