Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Thanks for your help with my router problems. I see now that the times the network stopped responding, there was a high volume of traffic (xbox live game session, bittorrent running on my computer).
However, when these network connection occur, my computer begins to run so slow that I have to turn the power off and on to restart the machine. Do you have any clue as to why this happens? I thought it may have been a software or hardware incompatibility, so I reformatted and reinstalled all of my devices. All of this to no avail; any thoughts?
Thanks again for your help with my previous problem.
If you truly have a router, and are not sharing your internet connection through your PC, then this problem can be with the router itself. It can very well be that the router cannot handle that kind of load. Unfortunately, reformatting your PC was an unnecessary step. At this point in time, I would suggest investing in a higher-end router, perhaps one that is rated with MIMO (multiple-in, multiple-out) technology. This will be beneficial to you when using xbox live and your PC at the same time. Also, I would suggest not running bittorrent while on xbox live, this requires a lot of network traffic, and not having a fast enough internet connection or good enough router, can cause issues. Another option, is to reconfigure your bittorrent client not to use so much of your bandwith, run a google search on bittorrent setup guides (or optimization guides).
Hopefully, all this info helps.
