Hi, I'm using linsys WRT160NL router and it works fine with 2 laptops, but other 2 laptops have problems with disconnecting from network and them it says Limited access internet. It's happening very often and especialy when downloading.I updated firmware and tried different channels, didn't help. Network mode is Mixed, could this cause the problem? Could it be problem with internet provider? Any ideas how to fix it? Thanks PS: basic computer knowledge

"Network mode is Mixed, could this cause the problem?"

Ideally the setting should match as closely as possible the network adapters being used. If you have "g" and "n" adapters, a "g&n" setting would be preferable to "b,g&n" for example.

Are the Laptops that work reliably using a different protocol (802.11g or 802.11n) from the ones that have the problem?
