      Random Disconnects

      They're getting more frequent and increasingly annoying. I can be playing Xbox online and then I get disconnected. It's easy solved by turning the router off and on then reconnecting, but it's inconvenient to say the least

      I've been made aware that there's a common bug with UPnP and you should disable it, but I can't find it in the router settings???

      I've changed my connection from WPA to WEP because the router couldnt connect wirelessly otherwise, but this shouldn't cause problems?

      I'll post any stats you ask for

      Cheers

      There is no problem with UPnP. That only applied to version 1 routers and was fixed by a firmware update.

      Are you loosing connection to the exchange or is it the wireless that is failing?

      Post your stats from the normal position and from the test socket.
