    strange problem: watching videos causes wifi box(AP) reboot


    I have a laptop Dell latitude E4310
    my system is fedora 16, I'm using firefox
    If I watch videos online, like youtube
    after tens of seconds or several minutes, the wifi box(AP) will automatically reboot, causing network outage.

    the wifi box is SFR neufbox, I'm in france.

    if I use other laptops, smartphones, ipad to watch youtube videos,
    it is of no problem and the wifi box works fine.

    what is wrong with this?
    any potential reasons?
    thanks

    If you are using the Neufbox dongle on your Dell Latitude, that may be the problem. Try borrowing one from someone else and see if that stops the Neufbox from rebooting.

    The Neufbox dongle is a USB device that plugs into your computer and connects your computer wirelessly to the Neufbox.
