Router Connection Drops Fast

My laptop was in the shop for a while, and when i got it back, the router connection would not reach as far as my laptop, a few rooms away. It works perfectly in the same room, but it decreases rapidly. I would like to know what is the matter with the router if it was working perfectly before and could reach to my room.

Ur 2 wire may be faulty... if it could reach ur room before then it shouldnt be the 2wire. if you have just had the laptop fixed personally i would take it back to them and advise them that thee laptop isnt picking up the signal strength is had before they repaired it, if something goes wrong and your amending it u may void all warranty on the laptop. when i have a low signal here i manually disconnect the internet through my settings and refresh it and normally it is fine after that. I am only suggesting though.

Netgear wn2000 states mover closer to router?


This message means your extender is too far away from your wireless router to make a good connection. Repeaters must be within a good signal range for the connection to work properly.

If you have a wifi enabled phone, tablet, or laptop, you can walk around your home and see where the signal reaches and how well. Repeaters should be placed where you still receive full or close to full signal.

Repeaters may have issues if the wireless router is on another floor, behind metal, or too far away.

Public wireless conection unable to connect


Hello It`s probably your wireless router that`s not working, or you could be too far away from the antenna.
Is the power supply working, for the router, are the cable set right, is the router on, are your internet connection working.

You can take the router, to a computer repair shop and let them test it.
The router must be connected like this:

But the wireless setup code for it, is different from one router to another.
If the wireless is working elsewhere, the pc is not the issue.

Good luck

I am running hughes net satelite internet on a hughes HN 9000 modem and trying to setup and configure my linksys E3000 wireless router for two hp laptops on direct ethernet connection to our desktop,...


Are you trying to connect the laptops via wireless? Is that where you are seeing 75 mbps? I am assuming you are, and 75 mbps is really not how fast your internet connection is. Rather, that is how fast you are transferring data from your laptop to the wireless router and back. Generally speaking, this should be a way faster connection than your internet is running at. Chances are your internet connection speed is 10 to 20 mbps, which is good and fast.

It is easy to get the two confused, but basically a wireless connection of 75 mbps is an uber fast connection to your wireless router, and only if your actual internet connection was faster than that 75 mbps would you see any slowness due to that.

Wireless N routers are capable of delivering up to 100 mbps connection speeds, but again that is only from your device to the router. The router then goes to your modem and out through the internet. Chances are that connection is not 100 mbps because of interference, which can be walls, other wireless devices, etc.

One way to test your actual internet connection speed is to go to www.speedtest.net and click on one of the links on the map. This will tell you how many mbps you get to the internet.

Two: (1) wireless connection drops often (2) no security is set


please call dlink tech support at 877-453-5465. just an advise on how to handle the call when you reach dlink tech support (agent); do not agree to call back after you troubleshoot with them (they'll be giving you a case id reference# and be advising you to check your pc or call "who" and call them back to continue the troubleshooting). insist to the agent that he need to resolve the problem asap (by the way, agents are not allowed to drop the call or they'll be dead-history!). and if the agent still insisted you to call back, ask for a "senior level technician" to finish the job (escalate the problem).
fyi: dlink tech support handling time to resolve a call is 15 to 18 minutes only. if you reach that 15-18 minutes (max) time the agent will think of a way for you to call back (advising you to check with your pc manufacturer, check with your ISP, call microsoft to update your software, etc... non-sense!) they need to do this in order to reach their handling time (agents need to reach 21 to 25 billable calls, and billable calls are "solution provided", "resolved", and "dropped call"). ---- believe me, i was one of them and repented.

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.

Netgear router AAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG


You did not mention if this is a wireless or wired connection. I will assume wireless for now. Since you are 4 feet away, you cant get any better reception than that.

When you go into the kitchen, you can have several things interfere with the radio signal. First is distance, how far away from the router are you? Second, what does the signal have to travel through to reach your laptop. What kind of walls, what is in those walls that can interfere with the signals. Do you have a lot of metal in your kitchen, that can act as a signal shield, preventing the signal from reaching your laptop. The high voltage wires in your kitchen walls can not be good for the signal.

What items in your kitchen can cause Electromagnetic interference (EMI). The motors in a refrigerator, or a blender will cause EMI.

Look at your laptop, it should tell you the signal strength. You will have to bring up the software that monitors your wireless connection. See how far you get from the router before to drops off.

If the router is not on the same level as your laptop, this will cause problems. Is your router in the basement or upstairs in a den or something like that?

Connection drops with netgear router


You router needs to be replaced,, When it gets loaded, it resets itself as it isnt capable of carrying the load.. if you look at your ip when this happens you would have realised if your ip changes.. You can try resetting the router first but if that fails you will need to replace the router..
