Hi Guys, 

So I purchased a 2.4ghz AV sender yesterday for our bedroom, our plan being to turn off our wireless router while using it if we needed to. When we first set up everything was working fine with no issues. Today my laptop starts disconnecting from the router and every time it happens I have to get up and pull the power plug and put it back in. I'm not watching TV so I decided to pull the power from the AV Senders and just use my internet. However the issue keeps occurring, so I'm wondering if it would be related to this at all, or just rather coincidental timing.  

Router is a Belkin F5D-7234 and we are on Telstra Cable. 

Any help would be really appreciated!

you may have made a neighbours wifi change channel by using the video sender.

imo return it and buy a 5.8ghz one.

Or even better, see if you can find one of those old UHF ones - they were great. You didnt need a special reciever for them other than rabbit ears and could send to multiple tvs just by tuning them into a normal channel.
