Default Network issue

I put a new wireless card inside my Mother's computer. I never had a problem with it, but she says that her wireless card resets while playing a small flash game.

I have a Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT. Never had a problem with my last card until recently.

I am running a slower speed on our DSL modem, because we can't get a higher speed. Being that we are too far from where the phone line connects. (768 Kbps downstream, 384 Kbps upstream)

Now, I have it set to WPA atm. I only put it to WPA because my PSP wouldn't connect to WPA2, but I don't use it online anymore. Would WPA2 be a stronger connection? Do i need to change anything else?

(I'm not sure where this would go, move it as you see fit)

Default Re: Network issue

When she says "Resets", what does she really mean?
does it lose connectivity? does it freeze up a bit then let her proceed?

Does she lose ALL connectivity? or just to the "game"?

just need to specify the "Reset".

No, it loses a connection with the router.

Her wireless connection goes dead, the lil wireless icon has a red "X" over it.

I did a test on wireless strength on my netbook, and i stayed within -50 to -62 dBl

I'll test that on her computer in a few. See what I get.

I'm running InSSider, btw.


edit: I got to a strong -35dBl.
