Default Please Help!!!!

My old Linksys wireless router went bad .... I bought another one and asked my computer guy to get it going for me .... it is working great expect for one thing .... Every 10 minutes, and I mean exactly 10 minutes I lose wireless availability ..... I click on the icon on the bottom of the desk top and a window pops up and asks me to connect ... I click connect and I have wireless again .... This happens, like I said, every 10 minutes exactly .... My computer guy is out of town because there was a death in his family and I do not know when he will back and this is driving me more goofy than I already am ... Can anyone help please???

My laptop is a Compaq presario 2100 with a built in wireless card ... Like I said it was working perfectly with the old router and it happens every 10 minutes with the new one ..... I think my guy did something to my laptop to time out but I can not find it ... is this possible??? Thanks Guys ....

hmm well i had sort of the same problem with my router.. the wireless connection kept flashing in and out on all my computers and i couldn't figure out why... what ended up being the problem was the built-in firewall in the router was set too high, so the wireless connection kept getting blocked by the firewall. i just changed the firewall settings and it worked fine. i don't know if you have a firewall built in in your router, but if you do, you might want to lower the firewall settings and see if that helps. thats all i can think of... i hope that helps
