I just moved and got set up with a new DSL modem/wireless router as I had to start a new account with my ISP. I am connecting wirelessly through my Dell Precision M70 laptop's internal network adapter. I am running XP Pro. Ever since I set up the internet at the new place, it has been cutting off completely at time intervals ranging from 2 minutes to 5 hours (I haven't yet had continuous internet connectivity for longer than 5 or 6 hours at a time that I know of). When the internet cuts off, I can re-connect instantly by doing the "Repair" option in Windows. Windows disables my network adapter, then enables it, then tries to connect to my wireless router, and then it says various things like "Clearing the DNS Cache" and "Registering your IP". It always successfully connects after this. I was looking around my router's page (192.168.0.1) and noticed that my computer had 382 open sessions, while the 3 other people I'm sharing the router with have very few open sessions (1 or 2). The page also said: "Session status: Session Usage High Recommended Action: Check LAN Devices for Viruses" Now, I'm pretty sure my laptop is free from any kind of malware. I regularly update and run AVG and Spybot. I have certainly had Trojans, etc. in the past, but I'm confident I have dealt with them. Anyone have any recommendations? I read somewhere that changing the channel of the wireless router can solve some people's problem with the internet cutting out periodically, but I'm not sure this will solve the problem with the high number of open sessions.
