Default Desktop manager & linksys wireless router

Please Login to Remove!

When I install the bb desktop manager on my home PC, i lose wireless internet connection to my linksys wireless router after a day or so. When i uninstall the desktop manager, my wireless internet connection works. Anyone else experience this problem?

I've never seen the Desktop Manager have any affect on a wireless router.

Never heard of such a thing either. With my background in networking and computers, the ONLY thing I can think of as even a possibility is if you have Bluetooth on the home computer, have Bluetooth enabled on DM, and the antennas are close enough that the signals are interfering with each other. A long shot, but the only possibility I can even think of.
