homer983 Posted May 20, 2011 Report Share Posted May 20, 2011 About three days ago I updated my wifi router firmware to make the most of my 30Mb/s plan. Then, the day after, or may two days later, I try downloading a file on Utorrent and it's the fastest download speeds i've had which are 1.1Mb/s and a 40 minute ETA on a 1.89gb file. I usually only get around 150kbps-500kbps before the upgrade. Anyway, after about five minutes, it stopped and I get the little X on the bottom right hand side of my screen to signify a loss in connection. When this happens, i can still see the signal from the router and I can usually reconnect once or twice before i am unable to see any signal at all, at which point I restart. I remember this happening to me at least twice before. Usually deleting the program completely and updating to the latest version works but this time i am still getting disconnected.I have since been able to download three other files totaling 2.5gb without problems (last night), then another 3 gigs (this afternoon)of files where the connection would disconnect and reconnect on it's own. The 1.89gb file which i mentioned earlier has also successfully been downloaded without any problems earlier this evening which took around an hour at 600Kbps. But just now, I have started to download more files and I keep getting disconnected. Sometimes it will reconnect on it's own, sometimes I have to reconnect using windows diagnostics which is not always successful.Additional details: my two other laptops are connected to the same router and have no problems whatsoever.I also have trouble accessing my router from this pc since the initial trouble started Usually when wifi disconnects the network is still visible. Sometimes it cannot be found and requires a restartI have tried running the program without any downloads and the network is not affected.asus wl530g router. linksys wireless g pci adapter on a dell running vista home edition.Sorry for the long ass post.
