Satellite internet router problem.

by forextrader / September 28, 2010 5:52 AM PDT

I have WildBlue satellite internet service. My connection keeps dropping. The satellite signal comes into the WildBlue supplied modem then into my Linksys BEFSR41 router. My adapter is a Realtek RTL8168B/8111B.

I updated the driver on the Realtek adapter but I am unable to access the Linksys router. I have Windows Vista, found the Realtek adapter but not the Linksys router. I would like to update the firmware on the router. I would hate to replace the router when a firmware update on my old router might do the trick. Any suggestions?
