Wireless Network Disconnecting

Wireless N Linksys
Router = WRT160Nv1 lastest driver/firmware
Adapters = 4 x WMP300N Broadcom chip with lastest drivers
Network settings : Static IP 192.168.1.101-2-3-4 router at 192.168.1.1
Distance : router is in the corner, and all 4 computers are within 30 feets, no walls, open office. DIsplays only EXCELLENT Signal in the status window of all 4 connections.

Problem : Wireless network disconnecting often ( about 10 times a day) on both nearest and farest PC, middle distance PC's disconnecting only 1-2 times a day.

Tries : Changing PCI slot (did not change anything), test Antenna places (did not change anything, still excellent signal with conenction lost), follow ups Linksys support about MTU and other router settings (did not change anything, or getting a poorest network), reinstall wireless cards without linksys sofware (only driver inf, but probleme stands still).

This equipement cost me more than 600$ (and about 20h of job since) please give me some tips to make it workable !!!

Great thx to any help !

    I tried Static IP to improve the connection time between router and cards, it helps a bit, but still disconnect.



    Jo_chinmay : You think about voltage trouble ? My router's adapter is the one that came with the box, supposed to be accurate ? Maybe I don't understand your post very well, sry... could you explain more please ? I think its Router troubles 'cause all my adapters disconnects, not as often but still have same problem on all my 4 PCs.



    Thankx a lot guys

I have a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter and a Cisco/Linksys WRT54GS Router. The signal is extremely poor even though the router is only 10 feet away. It does not appear to be an interference issue.


Hi,
You can update the Linksys Firmware to a newer version if is available, please check the Linksys support site
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54GS
Another chance is to change the Wireless Channel maybe 11, to avoid any intereference with wireless phones.

Encryptiing


Is your router from linksys also? How many wireless computers do you have? Note that if you encrypt your router, you need to make sure that each wireless computer gets the exact encryption keys you will use on the router. Usually the linksys router page can be accessed via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is "admin". Go to Wireless >> Wireless Security. Select WEP-128 key. Enter in a passphrase and hit generate. Copy key #1 on a piece of paper (make sure it's 26 characters) and click apply. Next, go to each wireless computer and use encryption key#1 when you connect to the linksys router.

Linksys Wireless-N pci adapter model wmp300n


If it says local or unidentified network that means you are just connected to the router on the network but not through the internet. Try to go to manage wireless network, remover your network there and add it again, connect to your own network and make sure to type the correct network key., then check again. You can also try connecting to other wireless network to further isolate the problem.
