wireless router issue

dell home computer

del laptop

lynksys wireless router and wireless card

xoftspy and norton 2005

sbc dsl

when i instal it works fine for a day or so and then just quits and i have to re-install and sometimes reset the router. it loses connection to both computers and anything linked to the laptop can not be accessed..

i can re-connect to the main computer but only if i uninstall the router and go back to square 1

i was told firewalls might be causing this.. anyone else had this problem

How old is the router. Some firmware versions on the Linksys are prone to problems. My last Linksys had the same problems and I constantly had to power reset and sometimes when it would lockup it would lose all configuration. You can check for updated firmware at www.linksysinfo.org. If it is the WRK54G there isn't many firmware options and this is a very well known problem. Have one setting in the closet that does the same thing so upgraded to a WRT54GS with no more problems.

When it loses the connection, can you wire directly to the router?

I'd also run the standard spyware/adware/viral checks......

My heavenly Father was enjoying me while I was yet in the process of maturing, not sighing in disgust and waiting impatiently until I grew up. He loved and longed for me; He felt proud and was excited over me while I was falling short."

it's the sbc, mine used to do the same thing, I just uninstalled the software for it, and it's been working fine since.

You need to upgrade the firmware for the router. Earlier Linksys Firmwares (even if you bought a new router it could be loaded with an older version) are notorius for causing this exact problem

i agree with that, and running spy/ad/virus. AND... firmware of the router.

2007 GMC Sierra RCSB - It breathes better now and looks better than stock.
2008 Honda 700XX - Doesn't need any mods.
