    Hey all, posted in wrong forum so here i go again lol ...

    I am currently connected via ADSL for my internet and my modem is connected to a Linksys Wireless N Router.

    However I constantly lose signal and my connection speed stops to a crawl when my brother is d/l or streaming online with his computer.

    Would switching to perhaps a new router (Time Capsule perhaps?) and switching to Cable make any significant difference? Thanks!

    Switching to cable would speed things up, since they are generally way faster than ADSL.....but check w/ the cable company first to see what speed(s) they offer & how much they want for it.....

    You've already got a "N" speed router, they're as fast as they get.......
