Wireless network adapter keeps disconnecting from router upstairs

USB adapter is new, router upstairs is old, sometimes I have a connection downstairs, but most of the time I have to use the installation CD to get it working again.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I think it would have worked, except that it seems the adapter's problem is a conflict with my new HP printer. So I can't have them both on/working at the same time. I'm doing a workaround for the time being.

Hi
Adaptor has nothing to do with signal strength.
Its the router .
Steps
1. Start -> Run -> CMD -> Ipconfig
( You"ll see default gateway which will be something like ex : 192.168.2.1 )
It is router specific
2. Type that default gateway (only the numbers )
in your brouser tab or run .
3. This will open up your router setup page
4. On the left hand side under wireless you"ll see channell and ssid . Change channell to 11 or 6 click save and then reconnect to your network on the wireless computer.
5. Also i would advice you to update the firmware on the router as it has become old so there may be some discrepency.
6. Dont keep any wireless devices near the router as it will interfere with the wireless signals .
This will certainly help
And let me know if the problem is solved .

Are you sure the problem is between your USB adapter and your router? I've had similar issues with my connection but the problem was with the router itself. I've downloaded a new version of the router firmware and everything has been fine since the upgrade.

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

Do i have to have a linksys router to be able to use usb adapter?


No you do not, but you do need some form of a wireless router to make that Internet connection wireless. Depending on which modem you have that connects to the Internet, you might already have a wireless router.

This sounds like it is probably the networking cables as your PC is directly connected so shouldnt have problems with net access. Get new cables as a first step :0)

My usb adapter (2wire 802.11g usb wireless adpter) is having problems.


you cant change the wep key on the upstairs pc unless you change it on the 2wire 1st. the pc wep key has to match whatever the 2wire has it set to. go to the 2wire router settings throught the downstairs pc that is working to be able to see what the wep key is set to, then when you get the key or set a new one enter that key into the upstairs pc.
