Lose router signal everytime i restart my laptop

I have a brand new HP laptop that picks up every wireless signal around me except the one from my own router. As soon as I go to the wired pc, log into the router and configure the security settings without changing anything and the router reboots, the laptop picks up the signal and automatically connects. It just wont pick up the signal upon restarting until I reboot the router again. The router is a brand new D-link. This is driving me crazy! Please help...

This seems to be an issue with the router itself. As the laptop is able to connect to other networks easily, the trouble seems to be with the router.

Try updating the firmware on the router. Also, change the wireless channel on the router and check if that helps. If the issue persists then I believe you will have to get the router replaced.

LENOVO G780 WiFi problems


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls, mirrors, fish tanks and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

I would guess that all the other wireless routers are broadcasting using the G wireless standard 802.11g and your router is only broadcasting using the newer N 802.11n standard. Your laptop only supports B/G. Check your settings on your router and either change it to G or dual G/N mode so your older laptop can find the network

D Link Wireless N router keeps having to be re-set


I've seen this on a router that was broadcasting very little signal. (in my case the next day it died. When the laptop is running move away from your router and try to determine where it loses signal strength. A router is good from the factory for about 200 feet with no obstructions. In most homes I give them 30 to 40 feet. Be aware that windows and glass doors nowdays use a metal mylar film between the glass to reduce infrared rays. If you lose the signal very soon then I'd say the router is dying.

Good Luck

It's a common problem because the signal can get bounced off surfaces and not get to your notebook directly. The reason why you can get neighbours is because most phone sockets are near a window, hence the router is picked up quite easily by your Acer laptop as it has a Signal Up built into the antenna in your screen and because the signal is only going throgh mainly glass and air it tends to pick up more connections than some other laptops. it also makes a big difference if your router has more than one antenna and a long range capability in the settings.
