New router need some help.

Hey guys I need some help. I just got a new linksys wireless n router model wrt160n and it wont hold the connection on my computer . The signal keeps going in and out but my ps3 picks it up with no problems and stays connected. Can anyone tell me how to make my computer pick it up and keep it?

Those are horrible routers. The problem you're experiencing is very common.

Unless, of course, the PC is just out of range.

The PC is a little ways away but it doesnt seem that far away and well then what is a good router so I can return this one?

You could use this firmware to super charge the hell out of the router; I used it on my parents D-Link. The wireless router sits on the bottom floor of a two floor house and reaches other side of their neighbor hood. Just be careful not to brick it.

Of course if you feel less than adventurous just go buy a D-Link or...or get a pair of home plugs and then you could basically put the wireless router in any part of the house that pleases you.
