a high bandwidth demand on pc2 causes the router to disconnect - I added a linksys (10 mbps) hub before pc2 which seems to have corrected the problem. What's up with that? Network is as follows: cable modem - router - 3 feet to PC1 - 20 feet to hub and PC2
Thanks for the reply but before connecting the hub I had tried different cables form the wall to PC with the same results so I don't think it is likely that there was a loose connection (at least not those connections). I just added the hub this morning so it's still possible that the situation may resurface. Do you think it may be possible that the addition of an active hub could have improved the quality of the connection?
