Re: My laptop and the router won't stay connected.

This is common with many manf. of routers. I have had the same issue. Are you running WEP? If so that's probably the culprit. For some reason, IEEE allowed more than one hash routine to get out there in the field, so sometimes if you have varying brands end-to-end, they can generate the hash-to-value a slight bit differently. So either a)Disable WEP b)Get netgear PCMCIA on laptop c)Move closer or change string in your WEP key to ONLY include 0-9 a-z d)Get a repeater. (Either netgear or brand of laptop WLAN NIC) Hope this helps. (I ended up disabling WEP as MAC filter and SSID turned off are sufficient enough for home use security.)

Try changing the channel that the wireless on the router is broadcast on... if you can see other wireless networks in your area, try changing yours to at least 5 channels different (ie, if you can see a wireless network on channel 1, change yours to 6). Overlapping wireless channels can stop good connections.

Router rebooting?

Try the following...
  1. Is your Power adaptor is loosely connected to the power socket?
  2. Check is the power adaptor produces more heat?
  3. Try to connect the device to the UPS if not..
If these are not the issue then there is possiblity of device failure.

Linksys keeps disconnecting

Have you tried different ports on the router? If so have you tried other computers hard wired in? Hard wire in one of your laptops for awhile and see if they lose connection as well. If so then the problem is the router, but if they can stay connected then I would try either updating your network card drivers or getting a new network card perhaps. Let me know if that helps any.
