We recently upgraded our iphones. Since then we are having truoble with our internet connection randomly disconnecting some of the devices being used.


If the WIFI security encryption for the WIFI password isn't in what's called "WPA2-ONLY", sometimes there will be random disconnects. By default, I think the encryption is "WPA+WPA2 mix mode" which can be the source of disconnects.

You will find this in your router's settings which you can access by navigating to what's called the default gateway IP in any web browser. Commonly, it is 192.168.0.1, but can be 192.168.1.1, or even 192.168.2.1. It will ask you for a username and password if you've done it correctly. It might say on the router what the username and password is, or you can find the default login credentials online for all common routers.

Login, then find some kind of "security" tab, maybe under wireless, or WLAN, or something like that. It will give you an encryption option for the wireless network and password, and choose the WPA2-ONLY option. Save or apply the settings, and your router will reset and hopefully you won't have any more disconnect issues.

Wifi problems v3-771


Inside most laptops, there is a WiFi Antenna. I once also had an issue with my laptop allowing me access, and then flicking off again. So every time I tried to use a program called "Steam" I would be disconnected from the servers. Inside the laptop, there is a wire that is attached to the WiFi receiver, that gets plugged into your laptops motherboard, If it is loose, just disconnect it completely, then plug it back in. If the antenna is warm, or hot. That means it is burnt out, and will continue not to work unless it is properly cooled. You CANNOT cool a WiFi antenna, so it is best to either search the web, and buy a new WiFi antenna that is the same model and brand as the one in your laptop, or just buy a LAN/Ethernet cable and play like that.
*NOTE - When you first buy a Ethernet cable, the laptop WiFi antenna must be removed, otherwise the laptop will switch between the two, and will make you periodically loose internet connection. Also, the computer will still (not as much) continue to disconnect, and reconnect for a while. Roughly 8-10 days, and then everything should smooth-en out. Here is a link to an image of a WiFi antenna for laptop:

Or, yours may look something like this:

Hopefully this helps you!

Hey I have a Acer iconia tab a500 and got an update to 3.2 but now I'm having wi fi issues its always disconnecting randomly and slow to buffer videos


If you are having frequent disconnects then you may wish to try a few changes. Change the broadcast channel for your wifi. Change the type of security if you are using WPA, try WEP. Are you using Microsoft's wireless configuration or Acer's wireless software.

HP Pavilion dv9700 laptop, Wireless stops working at random.


HP's normally use the Atheros wifi card which recently has had many problems such as what you describe here. Try a different wifi card to see if this solves the problem. If you don't have a wifi card take it to a local repair shop to see if they have one they can try for you.
