    Hey Everyone, I have an iMac wirelessly linked to a Belkin Wireless hub and whenever time machine starts backing up (even small amounts) the wireless signal drops before having to be reconnected.

    This is the log I got from the Widgit and the only thing of note is in the last few lines saying error:

    The iMac worked fine before and I used to have this problem wiht my macbook pro when it was linked to the BT home hub but switching to the Belkin router seemed to fix this.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    after a bit more research it appears it is doing it under any network load. I just tried to copy my music folder (20GB) to the shared music on my NAS and the network dropped pretty much instantly and yet if I bring my macbook por in to the same room it only gets about 25% signal (as opposed to about 40%) of the imac and it will copy the same music folder to the NAS no problem. Why is the network kicking my imac off:(

    right, ive fixed the problem by doing a complete reset of my router but im not sure what feature was causing the issue.

    My guess is it's either the QoS profile or the static IP possibly affecting it. Ill let you know if I find anything out!
