Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Connect the router to a UPS to prevent temporary loss of power issues. Any electronics store will carry a UPS that won't cost you a lot.

Xomputer will inexplicably lose the signal. A few


I think the problem must be with the router. When it drops the connection, you can see other networks but not yours.
that means at that time the wireless signal on your router must not be broadcasted.
WRT160N router has issues with the firmware. Youcan try to upgrade the firmware of the router.
firmware is the software of the router.
Once you upgrade the software, unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. wait for a moment and now observe the connection.

Linksys WRT54G2 V1signal drops out once every 24 hrs


Download a free tool called Netstumbler (Netstumbler.com) and perform a wireless sniff for surrounding access points possibly generating a stronger signal and knocking yours out. If you find one any that have an SNR that is close or stronger (closer to 0) than yours then change your access point to a channel that is different from them but limit your choices to 1, 6 or 11.

Another possbility is a 2.4Ghz cordless phone killing your signal.
