Question about Microsoft MN-700 Wireless Router
I'm running windows xp professional with a mn-700 router and I lose the signal occasionally. How can I fix this?
Hi ddmg46, thank you for using fixya.
here are some questions you may want to fill in so that we will be able to give specific answers:
1. is the wireless adapter in your computer built-in or you purchased and installed it separately.
2. are you using a wireless network utility (mostly used for installed adapters) or are you using the wireless zero config tool on XP ( this is usually the icon on the bottom left of your screen that looks like a computer with waves coming out.)
3. how far is the computer from the router? do you have wireless devices or other electronic devices in between?
generally, you may try to change the channel of your router wherein one of the 11 channels will be most compatible to how your network is setup. you may also try to apply wireless encryption in the network, assuring secure connection.
a common cause of intermittent wireless connection is another network that has the same name as that of your router (mostly happens on neighbors of the same brand) you may change your router's wireless network name or SSID to help resolve the issue.
Hope this helps, should you have other questions please do not hesitate to let us know.
