Default Wireless connection constantly disconnecting (N600 Dual Band)...

I have a N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter for my home pc and it was working fine up until just recently.

Now it disconnects to my hub every 5 minutes or so, also the indicator light flashes yellow repeatedly.

The only thing I've changed in my network settings at all was bridging my wireless connections along with my LAN connections (under "Network and Sharing Center" for vista). Unbridging them and rebooting my pc did not fix the problem either, so I assume it has nothing to do with that.

And theres nothing wrong with my HUB. The indicator lights on it all say internet connection is fine. I can only assume its the Wireless Adapter?

Help?

ICS- internet connection sharing with your wired network adapter and wireless can cause one to have internet connection and one don't.

Unbridged and deleted the shared connection. Connection still dropping every 5 minutes or so.

Tried system restoring my PC about 2 weeks back, didn't help.

Is this common among N600 wireless adapters? Any suggestion on replacing this with something more reliable? Also whats the best wireless adapter out in the market currently?

Thanks so much!

Depending in wireless router you are using.

Adapter itself is not an issue.

Done some tests with my Ipod touch, and the adapter on my PC. Tried playing the same videos at the same time via youtube.

Ipod was flawless, never dropped connection once and watched videos d/c free. PC with adapter on the other hand, was very skeptical and didn't last a minute before it cut off again.

Is my router really the problem here?

Please help! I don't want to go out and buy another wireless product only to have it defect on me later on.
