      Internet Not Working Properly Wirelessly

      Bought A new Linksis WAG160n last week as I wanted a faster speed for streaming but found out after I purchased it that it wont work on sky. I have been doing some research and have networked the two together.

      This is my setup:-

      Sky router for the net with is plugged into phone soocket,
      Linksys plugged in sky router with yellow network cable into network socket 1 on both routers.

      I have disabled DHCP on the linksys and changed the gateway to 192.168.0.10 as my sky 1 being 192.168.0.1.

      Anything ie laptop and xbox 360 work fine because I use them wired to the linksys but my pc upstaires which is wireless isn't.

      It connects to the linksys fine and I can use the internet for maybe 2 minutes ish and then it drops the internet.

      Is there something I haven't done on the linksys router or do I have a setting wrong on my pc?

      Thanks In Advance

      Phil

      that's cause you should disable DHCP on the Sky router after assigning the Linksys a static IP and leave the DHCP on in the Linksys...
