Lose "part" of th econnection

Ever since I installed my Linksys Wireless G Broadband Router (2.4 ghz), I've had a problem with it seemingly being the SOLE connection. Whenver I try to view more than one page on the internet, when I click on a movie/tv show and it changes scenes, the internet gateway in the tower seems to disappear, and the only connection I have then is the LAN or High Speed connection. Problem is, the internet runs very slowly then, and internet movies or video content are impossible to view. 90% of the time, I can unplug the wireless G, wait ten seconds, re-plug it, and both internet connections appear. MOST of the time. Sometimes I have to turn off the computer and wait for at least 10 minutes to get both connections to come back on. I did the "run cmd" to see if the numbers were correct, and they are. Should I simply trash this broadband router and get a new one?

Lost Install Disk

You don't need the install disk to use the router. If you plug in the router and press the reset button on the back of the router, the you should be able to connect to the network using only the windows wireless program.
