Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)

1 Answer

Wireless keeps dropping constantly

We use this router to connect our apartment. The wireless internet constantly drops (we don't have one wired) - about once an hour or so. When doing something heavy like streaming a video, it will drop every few minutes.

We just had Comcast come to replace our modem since it died and there were no other issues w/ the connection so we assume it has to be with the router. Any help would be great!

Analogue video senders used to send audio and video to other TVs in the home. 3. Microwave ovens emit interference in the 2.4GHz band. 4. Wireless speakers and console controllers can cause interference with the wireless router. 5. Bluetooth devices, newer Bluetooth devices can jump to different frequencies if there is a connection problem. 6. Power cables located near the wireless router can cause dropouts and speed reduction. 7. Fish tanks will cause massive Wi-Fi shadow on the other side of the tank from the wireless router. 8. Depending upon the location of large mirrors will reflect wireless signal away your computer. 9.

My connection keeps dropping even on my wired pc


Try this:

1) See if you internet service provider modem is working properly by cable-wiring one device for a day to it, it it's ok then...

2) Replace the router, Linksys's are renown for overheating and that will cause it to crash and re-boot, dropping internet and all attached devices. If you don't want to replace it try removing your wireless security that uses more device CPU, it might be more stable after that.

Hi,

we need to first figure out whether it the modem or the router which is dropping the connection.

Please connect one of your computer directly to the modem, by pass the router and access the internet. If the connection drops then its the modem which is dropping the connection and you need to contact your isp to check it.

If the internet works fine directly with the modem then its your router which is dropping the connection. To fix the router we can upgrade it firmware.

To upgrade the firmware please visit the link below;

Note; If you are not comfortable upgrade the firmware then don’t do it. If not done properly then it can damage your router.

After 30 min connected to the internet I am dropped from the internet. It says I am still connected to the Linksys router. It sems that It is timing out. What to do? Do I need to download new firmware?


Check the "keep alive" settings in your router, there is usually a choice between having it constantly "pinging" to keep the connection open, or letting it disconnect when it has been idle for awhile. Make sure it is set to "keep alive". The wording may be different but it will be something along these lines. Go in your browser to the wireless router's configuration page (i.e. http://192.168.1.1 ). Depending on what brand router you have this ip address will vary, consult your documentation for which number is used.

Internet connection keeps dropping


That may sound like a "roaming tendency" issue, with your laptop wireless card or settings, and/or general radio interference. try checking and tweaking the advanced settings of your wireless card, and maybe check for outside interference between your computer and router. Many cards have roam settings that dictate how often they roam between APs. I too live in an apartment complex, where other neighbors have their own WiFi router and there can be interference, and "intrusion issues" :? if your equipment is not properly set and secured.

Dropping Connection


This link indicates there may be an issue with hiding the SSID in the wireless router. A security item employed by some users. IF this is the case consider broadcasting the SSID and employing WEP or WPA encryption in the wireless configuration for both the router and the adapter cards to secure the wireless connections..

Internet connection keeps dropping


Two possible reasons

If you have hidden your network name (SSID) in the wireless configuration in the router and use WEP or WPA security there may be a bug that can result in extended disconnect periods. Recommended solution unhide the SSID and keep the WEP or WPA security.

Second there are numerous wireless devices in use. Keep your wireless phone base station away from your wireless router. Try changing the channel your router's radio uses to transmit -- Channels 1, 6 and 11 are preferred. Try one you are not using, if that does not work try the other. (If you can see the surrounding channels in you connection wizard you may want to start with one no one else is using)
