    Beacon? Do you mean range?

I cant find my beacon interval


Select Wireless under the Configuration tab, then select Advanced from the side menu the beacon setting should be the 3rd setting listed.


The default beacon setting should be good for any setup it might help to know why you want it changed.

I went to the actiontec router utility website. There is no item Beacon setting...


Hi,

To boost up the performance of the wireless connection try the following.

  • Open the setup page of the Router / Modem.
  • Click Wireless and under wireless click Advanced Wireless Settings.
  • In there, change the Beacon Interval to 50.
  • Change the Fragmentation Threshold to 2304.
  • And change the RTS Threshold to 2304.
  • Save the settings. Turn OFF the router. Turn it back ON after 20 seconds.
  • It'll work.

The Advanced Wireless Settings on a Linksys Dual-Band Wireless A+G Router allow you to customize different options and optimize your wireless network's performance. Linksys, however, does not recommend changing the advance wireless settings of the router. The current settings have been configured to optimize the router's wireless performance.
Accessing the Advanced Wireless Settings
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using Mac to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Wireless then click Advanced Wireless Settings.

4418-001.pngNOTE: If the screen on your router's web-based setup page looks different, click here.
Step 3:
The Advanced Wireless Settings window should appear. Here are some details:
4418-003.pngWireless-A Settings:
  • Authentication Type
    The default is set to Open System. For the Open System authentication, the sender and the recipient do not use a network key (wireless password) for authentication. For Shared Key authentication, the sender and recipient use a network key for authentication. If you want to use only a Shared Key authentication, select Shared Key.
  • Transmission Rate
    The default setting is Auto. The rate of data transmission should be set depending on the speed of your wireless network. You can select from a range of transmission speeds or keep the default setting, Auto. This will automatically prompt the router to use the fastest possible data rate and enable the Auto-Fallback feature. Auto-Fallback will negotiate the best possible connection speed between the router and a wireless client.
  • Transmission Power
    The greater the transmission power used, the larger the area a wireless network covers. To minimize the likelihood of eavesdropping by unauthorized wireless users, do not use more transmission power than necessary to cover the range needed by your wireless network. Try using the router at different levels of transmission power and determine how much power is needed to reach the wireless client, such as a PC or an access point that is farthest from the router. Then select the appropriate level, Full (Default), Half, Quarter, Eighth, or Min, from the drop-down menu. The default setting is Full (Default).
  • Frame Burst Mode
    Allows packet or information bursting which will increase overall network speed.
  • Beacon Interval
    This value indicates the frequency interval of the beacon. A beacon is a packet broadcast by the router to keep the network synchronized.
  • DTIM Interval
    This value indicates the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication Message (DTIM). A DTIM field is a countdown field informing PC's in the network of the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages. The default value is set to one.
  • Fragmentation Threshold
    This value indicates how much of the router's resources are devoted to recovering packet errors. The default value is 2347 and should remain as such unless you encounter inconsistent data flow. In the event you encounter inconsistent data, only minor modifications are recommended.
  • RTS Threshold
    This value should remain at its default settings of 2346. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications are recommended.
Wireless-G Settings:
  • Authentication Type
    The default is set to Open System. For Open System authentication, the sender and the recipient do not use a network key (wireless password) for authentication. For Shared Key authentication, the sender and recipient use a network key for authentication. If you want to use only a Shared Key authentication, select Shared Key.
  • Basic Rate
    The basic transfer rates should be set according to the speed of your wireless network and the value is set to Default. Depending on the wireless mode you have selected, a default set of supported data rates will be selected. The default setting will ensure maximum compatibility with all devices. You may also choose to enable all data rates by selecting All. For compatibility with products older than Wireless-B devices, select 1-2Mbps.
  • Transmission Rate
    The default setting is Auto. The rate of data transmission should be set depending on the speed of your wireless network. You can select from a range of transmission speeds or keep the default setting, Auto. This will automatically prompt the router to use the fastest possible data rate and enable the Auto-Fallback feature. Auto-Fallback will negotiate the best possible connection speed between the router and a wireless client.
  • Transmission Power
    The greater the transmission power used, the larger the area a wireless network covers. To minimize the likelihood of eavesdropping by unauthorized wireless users, do not use more transmission power than necessary to cover the range needed by your wireless network. Try using the router at different levels of transmission power and determine how much power is needed to reach the wireless client, such as a PC or an access point that is farthest from the router. Then select the appropriate level, Full (Default), Half, Quarter, Eighth, or Min, from the drop-down menu. The default setting is Full (Default).
  • CTS Protection
    The default value is set to Disabled. When set to Auto, a protection mechanism will ensure that your Wireless-B devices will connect to the Wireless-G Router when many Wireless-G devices are present. However, the efficiency of your Wireless-G devices may be decreased.
  • Frame Burst
    Allows packet or information bursting which will increase overall network speed.
  • Beacon Interval
    This value indicates the frequency interval of the beacon. A beacon is a packet broadcast by the router to keep the network synchronized.
  • DTIM Interval
    This value indicates the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication Message (DTIM). A DTIM field is a countdown field informing PC's in the network of the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages. The default value is set to one.
  • Fragmentation Threshold
    This value indicates how much of the router's resources are devoted to recovering packet errors. The default value is 2347 and should remain as such unless you encounter inconsistent data flow. In the event you encounter inconsistent data, only minor modifications are recommended.
  • RTS Threshold
    This value should remain at its default settings of 2346. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications are recommended.
NOTE: The features may vary depending on the version number of your wireless dual-band router.

hi ,
hey underwent the problem and i think there is no concern of the indicator lights they may be flashing or they may be solid as well . but the only thing that u should take care of is the powerlight it should not be blinking .
well if the wireless keeps on disconnecting at a regular period of time ....CHANGE THE BEACON LEVEL FROM 100 to 70(beacon means the signals propating time of the router )...
if it still doesn't work then u can surely call the customer care of ur routers company and they will provide u with the replacement of this router ....
