Re: [Wireless] dropped connections on Linksys BEFW11S4 router
The FIX is make sure ALL your Media players on ALL your computers have Multi-cast and UDP turned off:
Windows Media Player
Most people may NOT even know what application launches for what audio/video format, and it can be DIFFERENT for all computers on your network, so, make sure ALL the computers on your network have these DISABLED and you will have a very very ROCK-SOLID router.
The problem is that pages like Yahoo for example, when they see broadband speed, they try and get FANCY and do video and audio from time-to-time, it is when these pages make attempts to do this and the settings are NOT correct for your media players on your network using this router try and PLAY the video/audio that the router locks up.
Hope this helps, by the way go to the latest firmware as well if you can, there is no reason to be SPOOKED to a earlier version, this FIX will solve the FREEZES for SURE!
