I recently bought a new router which is supposed to be far better then my previous one I had, which was Netgear. I purchased the Linksys WRT160N Ultra RangePlus Wireless-N Broadband Router. Currently, dispite the modem and router box not going out or changing at all, my connection drops, and will throughtout the day at random times. Sometimes the connection on my laptop still says "local and internet" and sometimes it says "local only" either way I have between 3-5 bars. Dispite the distance between my laptop and the router I have always over the past 6 years have had good reliable connection, but this new router is giving me problems and im unsure why. Either way my internet never complelty goes out, but I lose connection from my laptop and/or PS3 or any other device trying to connection from it. Normally I must go downstairs and reboot both the router and modem to fix it. I restore it by unplugging the power on both, then letting the modem reboot fully, followed by the router in that order. Then everything is fine until the next unexpected wireless dropping. I just recently bought a brand new HP laptop, Pavilion dv7 running 64 bit Windows home premium. I hope iv given enough information to get a fix for this. Thanks.
