Usually not.

In reply to: firmware update

Since the firmware is out of date then it's not up to the forum sticky yet. But keep trying.

If I knew the exact make+model+VERSION and the file (link please) I might be able to comment but I won't given only this so far.

There is also an issue of disconnects when P2P software is used. Be sure you are not chasing that issue.

i changed the security to from wpa/wpa 2 to wep

maybe it wasnt supported, if this still messes up then its the router

Make, model, firmware version of the router.

And if P2P is used.
