Disconnecting Pc

I have 3 Laptops and 2 xboxs in my house, 2 laptops have windows 7 and 1 has vista.

Mine and my brothers laptops are fine, but my dads laptop seems to always disconnect the whole house from the internet, sometimes it happens every min, sometimes every hour but its only his laptop that does this.

Whats wrong with it and how do i fix it

Re: Disconnecting Pc

you can try downloading inssider2 (istumbler if MAC) and then run it. This will show the broadcasting networks round about you and their channels including your own. If you then enter your router and change your wireless channel to a free or less congested channel.

 

also try changing from default b/g/n to just b/g unless all devices are 'N' rated.

 

are network/wireless drivers up to date?

A better laptop doesn't automatically mean a better wireless adapter!
