Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Toshiba Satellite running windows vista home basic, and about ever 20-30 mins my internet connection will drop for no apparent reason. A few seconds later it will come back, but this is very annoying when trying to download something. My wireless router is a linksys wrt54 g, any help would be appreciated.
Are you on the wireless internet or on the internet through a cat5 cable? If on through the wireless I think its a wouter issue. try upgrading the firmware of your router first. If that doesn't work try using a different router. Also try upgrading your drivers on your computer for however you are connecting to the internet. Either your network card or your wireless card via device manager.One of those solutions should solve the problem.

Testimonial: "Thanks! After upgrading the firmware, and the drivers on my laptop I have been good for awhile. Hopefully it will continue to work, thanks again!"
My linksys did the same thing..
seting the Security Mode to [WPA2 personal] in the routers admin page fixed it for me..
You have to log into the router useing the routers ip,, but you have to hook a computer to the router with cable,, cant use wireless to do this.
If you need help seting the Security Mode, hit me back after you get a pc or laptop hooked to the router useing a cable..
