      odd network behavior with Sky(Sagem) router and Airport Extremes/Express

      Hi,

      I'm having a problem with our current network config for Sky BB. Unfortunately our house doesn't house wifi connections very well due to crazy walls! Anyway:

      The Setup: Sagem plugged into the wall, ethernet to first Airport Extreme, wifi to Airport Express, wifi to second Airport Extreme then Macbook Pro/iMac connect via wifi.

      The Problem: internet appears to work fine except after a certain amount of download (iTunes, Usenet, http(s)), the network appears to just stop dead suddenly and then will not return any WAN connections for a few minutes - very annoying. The amount I get between each dropout varies massively. iTunes sometimes struggles to download 300MB. Usenet is usually a bit better and maybe 500MB-1GB. It does however, seem to be when the speed is pushed to the limit that the Airports can handle with the current setup (about 1.4megabits).

      Because we have iPhones we need the Airports set to n with b/g compatibility for now.

      Any advice would be great and I can give more information if it will help.

      Thanks,
      Scott
