Hello,

i am using a linksys wireless g- broadband router model no. WRT54G2 V1. My problem is the internet connection of both the computer hardwired to the router (has windows vista) and the laptop using the wireless connection (with windows xp) only work for a few minutes. After a while, both get disconnected. I will then restart my laptop, internet will work for a few minutes again, and the cycle goes on and on. I already had this problem before but I solved it (I think) when I deleted the malwares using the malwarebytes’ anti- malware. But I cant do that anymore because when I used that program again, it takes me 6 hours to do a quick scan and I cant wait any longer so I just stopped scanning. I downloaded spybot search & destroy and scanned it and deleted the infected files already. But the internet connection still fails me. What should I do ? help!Here’s the IP Configuration of my internet.

Did you try connecting directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router issue or an ISP issue? What is the exact make/model of the modem?

my modem is ZyXEL p-600 series. when hardwired to the router, the laptop works okay for a longer period. but after maybe 45 minutes, it gets disconnected too. when using wireless connection, it loses connection in 5 minutes.

i dont know if im correct, but in my observation, i lose internet connection while using wireless internet connection when i try to message a person through the yahoo messenger or when i try to call someone using the same program.

These are the results of the pings when the internet is no longer working but the wireless connection icon says that the connection is excellent

You appear to have serious like quality issues. If this is with a wired connection, I'd be talking to the ISP!
