      Netgear DG834GT - keeps disconnecting.

      My router,
      a netgear DG834GT, which was free with my SKY broadband, connects when you turn my laptop or my computer on, and then after abour 3 or 4 minutes it will disconnect.
      Which I have to go into the wireless connections utility and manually re-connect it.
      Which then it will disconnect again, and so on and so forth.

      Any suggestions?
      Thanks.
      Ryan.

      ^^^ Try a different wireless channel for starters. It could be interference from a neighbour's router. Otherwise, try experimenting with the position of the router - higher is better I believe.

      Also, addresss the router's user interface (instructions in tutorials on this site or in the help files on the Sky CD) and turn off UPnP.

      It's in the 2nd bedroom upstairs, ontop of the computer desk.
      So, it can't get much higher.
      Thanks anyway.

      I turned off uPnP and it's still happening.
      Thanks.
