      Laptop Wifi Drop out

      My Toshiba laptop connects to the Sky wireless on strtup but disconnects after around 2 mins. I double click the the telly in the bottom corner and the dialog box pops up offering me my Sky wireless service and I have to click the connect button.

      This happens every 2 mins and makes the connection just about useless.

      Anyone advise what is wrong? Obviously the settings are right as it connects OK on startup!

      Thanks,
      steve

      If you have the original white Netgear router try disabling UPnP in the router user interface -- see help files on Sky CD or tutorials on the is site for how to address user interface via browser.
