I use Optimum online as my SPI.The computer I use with the Optimum connection feeds into a Netgear router that feeds several other computers on a wireless network.
I'm having trouble, especially with my daughters Mac.The Optimum connection continually fails and I need to reboot the modeum and the router to get everyones computers running online again.
Does someone know what I can do to solve this problem?

Well, I'd start with my usual round of router and wireless fixes.


Some things you can try here, listed in the order you should try them.

  1. For wireless connections, remove all the stored wireless profiles and search for networks. You'll have to enter the encryption key again, which is sometimes the issue for connection problems.
  2. For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
  3. For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
  4. Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.
  5. Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
  6. Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.
