  1. Hi, I have been loosing internet connection every 1,2, or 3 hrs. while playing WOW
    It kicks me off and i can log right back into game with no problem for an hour or 2, And it does it again. I have reset the router and DSL modem several times but does not work. Heres my setup...
    I have 2 computers playing WOW at same time. One Hard wired with win XP. One Wireless with Vista. Both computers have a static IP (no auto assigned) Linksys WRT150N Wireless Router. Have opened ports for WOW forwarded to both ip's. Have only 2 ip's setup on router. Have max # of users set to 2. IP range is 192.168.1.136 to 192.168.1.137.

    Before i had obtain auotmatically on bot comps and no ports forwarded and got kicked all the time.
    Setup ip's on both comps and Forwarded ports to WOW and worked for 2 months or longer. Now having same problem again. Help me Please!!!

    DSL modem could be the problem or the router?
    Do this:

    connect the DSL modem directly to the PC and see if you get the same problem?
    If you don't then you know it's not the DSL modem and it's the router causing the problem.

    Have you update the firmware in the router by chance?
