      internet light goes out

      Hello everyone.
      I have sky broadband max and belkin wireless adapter and can connect to the internet as long as i reboot the router first. Once connected i can access the internet fine for about 15 to 20 minutes then the internet light will go out on the router and then my pc tells me that i am now offline. My wireless connection is still showing connected with excellent signal strength.
      I am not very technical so please could anybody shed any light on this problem in beginner terms. I am slowly losing patience and sky's helpdesk is useless. Thanks.

      The test socket is behind the master socket and is revealed when you remove the front cover of the master.
      Try this utility to get your stats as your dropouts could be caused by your noise margin falling below the threshold at which the router will disconnect.
