    I've been running my laptop connected to a belkin wireless router.No pc
    involved just a direct wireless connection to laptop.
    The last week or so i have been losing my connection every couple of
    minutes.I checked all the cable connections were solid etc, but i was still
    losing the connection.
    Today i reset the router to factory settings and reset the security to
    WPAA/WPA2 adding a passphrase. The internet connection was still going off
    every couple of minutes.
    I then decided to disable security to see if that made a difference and it
    has.
    I no longer lose the connection and i am getting full download speeds.When i
    enable security i lose the connection again.any idea why this is happening ?

    does your laptop support wpa2? maybe you want to turn off some
    security features on the belkin perhaps mac address spoofing. how
    close is the ap tot he laptop? any microwaves/hot water cylinders and
    such in the way that could be interfering?
