"It sounds like your router is misbehaving when GoToMyPC is active. This is likely just something screwy with the router firmware, when it detects a certain type of packet incoming it's going haywire and disabling the wireless network.

You can try upgrading the firmware on it -- make sure you get the right version for your device; they list different files for v8.0, v8.1, and v8.2.

If that doesn't fix the problem, you can

try a third-party firmware (DD-WRT, OpenWRT, Tomato) if your device is supported.
try a different router (different model linksys, even a different version WRT54G, may not have the same problem)."

Yes, I also think that GoToMyPC may be affecting. I use pc file transfer. I have several computers set up with this program and it works good. I don't have problems with this remote application tool, ever.
