2wire dropping xp pc

I am using a 2wire router and embarq dsl modem. The xp pc keeps dropping the link I have tried both wired and wireless on it. Works ok for short time then loses connection. I have another linux pc and it stays connected even while the windows pc has lost the connection. Any ideas where to look?
Thanks

    By losing the connection what exactly is happening? How do you know when the connection is lost? Does the same thing happen with a direct connection to the modem (bypassing the router)?

I am wondering if it is a heat solution or problem with the modem/router. I have had to replace several of these combo units in people's homes as they seem to fail without warning and then go crazy (constantly rebooting itself, etc). Not sure since the user did not say, but the 2wire units from SBC/AT&T/Embarq that I have encountered are basically modems with the router and wifi built-in, thus making it difficult to check the modem by bypassing the router

Step 1try to connect your computer directly to the modem and check if you will also experience problem
Step 2: Shutdown the computer.

Step 4: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 5: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear
stable.
Step 6: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 7: Power on the computer on and configure router settings if neede

if this still didnot work, maybe you need to upgrade the firmware of your router

    also, make sure that the ip address of your modem and router are different to avoid IP conflict

I had ATT DSL w/ a linksys wireless router. I was


So, both computers are on the lan segment of 2wire? How many lan ports on 2 wire? Can you do ipconfig from the command line on both computers to see what the addresses are? In most cases, the first 3 octets xxx.yyy.zzz.### should be the same. If not, then 2wire is configured for vlan and the computers are actually on different lan segments & cannot communicate with each other.
Another thing you can do to troubleshoot is to ping each other's address.
You have to first establish there is communication between the 2 systems before troubleshooting further. Otherwise, you could be wasting a lot of time.

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet


So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

Recently had a Belkin Wireless system install at home that keeps dropping the line in my room so want to use ASDL cable to connect to my computer what is the best modem card to get to do this


Your ISP should provide you with an external modem that would be connected to your phone line, then you would connect the modem to one of the wired connections on the back of the router, or directly to the back of your computer.

However, if you insist on an internal modem, I would suggest either a U.S. Robotics or Encore brand.
