Question about Routers
My internet service cuts off every few minutes and then comes back. My wireless router displays a yellow WLAN light instead of green the Status light is also yellow and flashing. How can I determine if the problem is my D-Link router or if it is my internet service overall?
I had the same problem. I changed the channel on my router. It was apparently on the same frequency as my cordless phone. Has been working perfectly since then. Hope this helps...
