Disconnecting from internet when others use the wifi

  1. Hello, I've had this problem for a good while and cant seem to find many answers. What happens is that I will be online and everything is fine untill my wife or daughter decide to get on to one of their devices that use the same wifi (ipad, ipod, phone) and everyone will get disconnected. After 2 or 3 minutes everyone will be able to connect again, for a few minutes at least, then we will get disconnected again. Rinse repeat.

    Our router is a Belkin wireless G-plus mimo, Model# f509230-4
    Modem is Westell model 6100, e90-610015-06
    My wireless router in the bedroom connected to the PC is a linksys wusb6300 (blinks orange light at the time of dissconnect)

    Any ideas on how we can stop constantly disconnecting each other would be greatly appreciated.

    Two suggestions:

    First, make sure you have the latest firmware for that router

    Second, after updating the firmware, access the router config and set the MTU to 1492.

    This will stop packet fragmentation and all devices will then be protected from a packet reassembly overflow condition, failing all existing connections.
