    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!

    I'm only really here at night.

    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.......
