Question about Gateway Cable/DSL Router - 4Port [ Belkin F5D5231-4 ] (108807)
I've noticed on both machines on my network (wii & PC) that from time to time the signal just drops from the router for a period of a couple of seconds, then returns.
This never happens if I plug directly into the digital modem.
Its not really a problem for data transfer, but its really annoying when gaming as it usually drops me from the server..
Do you know what could be causing the problem?
I have heard of this problem before with these belkins,,, usually its like a SpikeDrop every like 5-10 minutes. Frigging kills any kinda gaming experience. Ok you need to update the firmware on that router and DUMB down the security settings and turn off that file share **** on the router too. If none of this helps just return it and buy a better router or a linksys.

Do you have DHCP enabled on your PC? Sounds like you are not getting the IP address.
