Hi everyone I am new to this site, sorry if this question has been asked and answered already. Here is my problem... I have a Dynex N wireless router and a comcast cable modem, my desktop pc connects to the internet just fine with good speed, but my laptop downstairs is having problems. I purchased a Belkin N usb adaptor and it picks up the signal with good speed, I am able to surf the net and use xbox 360 live fairly well. Teh problem is that the signal just quits at time and I cant seem to get it back unless I keep restarting the computer and unplugging the modem and router, sometimes this works but it takes a LONG time. Usually I can see the network that I use but it wont connect to it, I hit the connect button and then the network dissapears. I dont know what to do. Is the problem with my router or usb adaptor or other? Any help is appreciated thak you.

Re: Wireless signal keeps dropping/dissapearing
Check my tip Using Router and Wlan adapter from different brand (Dynex + Belkin) is sometime calling for trouble: you must configure both to be sure to be on same standard (or change Both). I'm using Netgear + Belkin and tune is not easy On router config check radio power, reduce the used standard (B/G A/N) to the only one used by Belkin adapter (N). Be sure you removed Windows zero wireless configuration (= use windows to manage my connection= OFF) edit your belking wireless networking utility to automatic reconnect:
try downgrading to G standard from router side Check your network connection plugging your laptop to router via lan cable.and check network params (DHCP DNS etc.). Then check wlan connection near router, if you experience wlan drops only when far from router, find any possible interferences source (Microwave, cordless, remote) remove it or be ware you cannot have wlan when your wave is working.

LOSING WIRELESS CONNECTION Make sure the latestwireless card driver is installed in the computer.Locate the wireless routerhigher and away from concrete and brick walls, foil-insulated walls. Locate the wireless routeraway from cordless phones and microwave ovens these can cause interference.You could be gettinginterference from other wireless access points or wireless routers in yourarea. Check the wireless broadcast channels in your area, and select one thatis unused or one that has the weakest signal strength.
This is a massive and expensive network, which appears to require a full signal and configuration audit. It's quite possible that many of your problems are stemming from the APs you have already deployed being situated in suboptimal and conflicting locations, which is an issue with three-dimensional wireless networks.
I really don't see your problems being debugged by anyone short of an experienced on-site wireless network technician. I'm saying this as a person who tuns a one-man company serving two rural communities with wireless internet service.
hi invictus.. have some idea on it... when your "logging in" in yahoo messenger pls try to click first the "forgot password" which is located at the buttom of the messenger.. then the internet browser will pop up and it will ask your email ad... and authomatically your account will open but it has a new email that gives your password... thank you very much....
Site Survey is meaningful only in bridge mode, not access point mode. Assuming you are operating this unit in bridge mode, it could be possible that no signal is being detected because there are no access points nearby for it to detect. If you know that there are, in fact, working access points in the vicinity, then my first suspicion is that you have a faulty unit.
Try moving the access point to another spot in the house.
Also you should try changing the channel that you are on and see if that helps.
Try the below order again even if you tried it once.
Update your OS first, if not already done. Search for a firmware update
for your specific brand and model of wireless router. And see if your
computer's wireless equipment might have a firmware update available.
Sometimes these will address and fix similar problems. (Tip: Never
update router firmware over a wireless connection.) I don't know what
you're using for network security, but if applicable, try changing the
router's wireless frequency/channel to something other than default.
Experiment a bit. See if distance from router to computer has any
impact on a dropped connection. Move the router itself to a different
location in the house, if possible. Wireless connections seem to be
prone to dropping their signal. I don't know if this is any better with
the newer routers coming to market in the near future.
Please post any further comments and keep me updated and I will try to figure this out if the above doesn't work
Opening your browser. Looking in your manual there is an instruction telling you how to connect directly with your modem. Type that address in, enter the user name and password it tells you. Then look through several of the option tabs it will display. There will be one that controls the "transmit power" level. Once you find it, change it to 100% if it something less than that.
That should fix your problem.
Trednets are know to do this if you have another wireless component close or next to the device. Do you have any 2.4ghz phones? Cell phones? Other wireless devices? If you have not tried yet, Try switching the channel on the access point.
If its not a channel issue, try getting new firmware and test the signal strenth with a wireless sniffer such as Net Stumbler
