why do I keep losing my connection?

I have a linksys wireless router that is hooked up directly to the pc...I use it for my xbox in another room. Recently I have been losing my connection to the internet like every 10 minutes. I have to unplug and replug my router to get it back...then repeat.

Anyone know what's going on?

thanks!

A couple of suggestions would be to:

- Try changing the wireless channel that the router is using, preferably to 1, 6, or 11.

- Update the router's firmware. Perhaps the latest firmware addresses the connection problem you're experiencing.

The firmware upgrade seemed to help, thanks a lot!
