N1 Belkin to HP notebook - connection speed drops to 24mbps

I have a HP Pavilion notebook, which always worked fine with our previous wireless router. When that broke we bought a Belkin N1.
My boyfriend's HP laptop works fine, perfect internet connectivity, then we linked up my laptop, the network is set up etc, however the connection speed keeps dropping from 54 to 24 (or less) mbps every minute or so. (which is very frustrating, so slow to load anything.)

The problem fixes itself, as soon as I take my laptop further away from the router, sitting outside works great, only in the living room, which is next to the office with the router, it doesn't work. It's almost like the routers signal is "too strong" and interferes with itself.

Can anyone suggest a solution? any help would be appreciated.

It might be because of other electronic devices that works nearby in similar frequency...devices lik microwave oven, inverters, modems provided by the ISP which comes along with a battery backup, especially RCA modem which doesnt allows other wireless devices to work nearby it... try to relocate the router to a well ventilated area, and make sure you have kept the router atleast 5 feet away from other electronic devices...it could help....

Streaming online Video on Wireless connection take a lot of Bandwidth and if the Wireless settings on the router are not proper then the connection dropping issue is tend to happen, check if you have the latest firmware on the Router or not and also try to download some large file, not movies and then check the connection speed, if its near to your satisfaction then we have to check the ping request to the youtube.com for the average lag and packet lost in the communication.

My Belkin n1 router disconnects from telstra every 2 hours - exac


This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to www.belkin.com and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).

Downloads locks up - Belkin N1 Wireless Router


I had the same problem. My Belkin N1 Router was constantly dropping the WiFi connection (every few minutes). I tried several solutions I found on different forums:
Change the channel selection from Auto to a specific channel -- I tried all 13 channels, but no improvement.

Update the firmware to the latest (Beta) version -- still no improvement.

Finally I enabled "Protected Mode" and the connection seems fine now. Hope this helps, and good luck!
