Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Avoid factors that cause interfrence on the wireless connection.

If you are facing wireless interference on the wireless connection and have already tried resetting and changing wireless channel on the routers and the issue still persists then please check the factors that could cause wireless interference.

The factors you need to check:

1) Make sure that the router is sitting on a wooden desk. If it is sitting on any metallic surface or on top of your Monitor or CPU, please remove it and then keep it on a wooden or glass surface.

2) Some modems may create interference with the router. So it is always advice able that you place your router at least 3 feet away from the modem.

3) Since Your router is having internal antennas, the transmission capability of your router can be increased if your router is mounted vertically rather than keeping it horizontally.

4) Similarly, Make sure that the wireless adapter in your wireless computer is positioned in such a way that it can receive wireless signals generated from the router without any disturbances. If your wireless adapter is hiding inside any enclosed surface you can position it properly.

5) Similarly if you have a cordless phone operating at 2.4 Ghz, It will definitely interfere with the wireless signals generated from the router. Make sure that you keep your cordless phone away from the router or other wireless devices or you can even switch off the phone for sometime for testing purpose.

6) Also try disabling the personal firewalls in your computer like Mcafee, Norton Internet security, Spy ware, Zone alarm etc.

Hope this information allows you to resolve the issue.

It appears that your Wii console's Internet connection may be affected by wireless interference. Try the following:

Change your wireless router's channel to 1 or 11
Changing the wireless channel on your router may help. Most wireless routers have a channel range of 1 through 11. The best channels to try are usually 1 and 11, as they do not overlap with other channels. Typically, the channel settings for your router will be found in the router's main "Wireless" tab.

Where is your wireless router located?
Move your router away from walls and off the floor and try to place it in a central location in your home. Also, keep it away from metal objects such as metal filing cabinets which can cause interference.

Look for other devices
Noise from cordless devices (cordless phones), or wireless electronics (wireless keyboards, headphones, cell phones), especially those using the 2.4GHz frequency, can interfere with your wireless signal. Also, older microwave models can cause wireless interference. Avoid electronics that use the 2.4GHz frequency, instead look for devices that use the 5.8GHz or 900MHz frequencies.

WEP / WPA Troubleshooting

If you've tried the above steps to reduce interference and you're still experiencing problems, it's possible that the wireless security pass code for your home network may have been changed or is entered incorrectly on the Wii console.

My WRT300N seems to have trouble with wireless connections lately. The wireless indicator is a green light, blinking a bit from time to time. Most of the time the router just won't be detected, however sometimes it's there after performing a reset. I can access the router admin panel and I've already updated the firmware to the latest version.


I suppose you have not suppressed SSID broadcast? Sometimes, interference from neighbouring wireless devices such as Coreless Phone, unshielded powerful speakers etc., may cause interference. Try to keep any other wireless or magnetic device at least 5 - 6 feet away from router.

In the router admin panel, check if you have an option to change the WiFi Channel. usually channel 6 is quite crowded ... try some other channel and see if it is stable. If your router has "Auto" Channel option enabled, please change it to "Fixed" and try.

I upgraded my Linksys WRV54G firmware from 2.39.2 to 2.39.2e and completely lost internet connectivity


hi there,
have you tried to reset your wireless router so that the default settings are being used, then try reconfiguring it again for your Internet connection.. then try to connect wireless again ... sounds like your router may have lost its settings which happens for some firmware upgrades.....

Wireless Interferences
Neighboring wireless networks or any appliance that operates on the same frequency as your wireless device (e.g. 2.4 GHz) may cause interference and therefore may affect your wireless connection and signal.
Common sources of interference are:
  • Neighboring wireless networks
  • Microwave ovens
  • 2.4 GHz cordless telephones
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Wireless baby monitors
To solve the problem, change the channel and SSID on your Access Point. Preferred channels to use are 1, 6 and 11 since they’re considered non-overlapping channels.

Router loses connection to Internet


Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
  1. Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
  2. You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .
  3. On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
  4. The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
  5. Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
CauseYou are not able to connect wirelessly mainly due to environmental interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router. SummaryWireless signals are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is the reason wireless connections can drop. This article explains how to overcome frequent wireless disconnections by changing the channel number (frequency) on the Belkin router.
