Default Why does my internet go out when using my laptops?!?

can anybody help me adress this problem.im thinking my router is not good but it was like 129 bucks.my PC cable internet connection works fine.i have it hooked up to my netgear wpn824 router along with my xbox360.both the pc and 360 work fine.

my problem is that when i use either laptop wirelessly of course to my home network i ALWAYS lose my connection.(im getting "Excellent" connectivity by the way)usually im good for like 20 min 30 min and then boom its out and i have to unplug my router and wait for it to boot up again.ive noticed it only goes out when viewing high traffic sites like MYSPACE for example

my laptop does this and my sisters all the way upstairs have these same problems.so i know its not the comps fault.whats up with my router.the thing cost 129 bucks and as soon at the laptops run into a little traffic the router just drops off.i don't even use my brand new laptop anymore cuz of this!


anyway my cable modem speed it great

my router is supposed to be really good (netgear wpn824)

my two laptops are good, 1 of them brand new

my PC and 360 stay online and work fine at all times

ive tested my connection with the 360 troubleshooting after the laptop lost connection and the 360s passed the tests until it got to "DAT" connection or something like that

thanks

Jesse

what happens if you connect the laptops wired? do they stay online or do they still god own after 20 min 30 min?
