  1. More of a Mystery, than a problem. But I keep getting temporarily disconnected(3 min) every time I turn on my AC(window unit)

    What the hells going on. Loose connection perhaps?

    HI,

    From the internet. Along with a little pop-up window telling me so. It takes about 3 min before im able to re-connect.

    big engines put out a lot of RF.

    Is your wireless router/AP plugged into the same circuit as your A/C? Its possible when the A/C kicks on it draws too much power, dropping the router below what it needs, like when the lights dim just for an instant after you turn something on with a high current draw. I would think the AC to DC conversion that happens before the router gets its power would be able to compensate for that but maybe not.
