hi everyone, i have a puzzling problem that i or my friend can seem to figure out. every 6 or 8 hours, i lose connection to the internet but only most of the time, just the internet. i operate and control the computer in question using VNC. i can remain connected through VNC but we lose the internet, yahoo and msn connection. the router was set on channel 11 and the pci card was set at 6 so we made them both 6 and all security settings are in tact. can someone explain or suggest why we are losing connection periodically like this? it almost acts like it is timing out. the only way to reconnect to the internet is to restart the computer. thank you for any help.
just to update, i installed the drivers last and so far it's still connected and reading the internet. it's usually in the afternoon that the internet connection drops so we will see. i'll send another update and/or close this post early this evening. thanks for your help everyone.
