D-Link DIR-628 wireless connection flickering

I have a D-Link DIR-628, with 2 computers(wired) and 2 laptops (wireless). on the wireless connections, it will randomly flicker, and it will come up and immediately reconnect.When it gets reconnected, any video i was watching will not load past the point from where it dropped off. The wired connections don't seem to have this problem.

You are getting some kind of elecrical/wireless interference. This is difficult to trace. Have you noticed any electrical interference on the TV screen when the wireless connections drops off?
It could be as simple as someone using an arc welder in your area.
Or a neighbour heating up something in their microwave oven (this oven can be faulty and is leaking microwave energy).
If you can identify the source of interference then you may find a solution.
There are a few things you can try.
Get a surge protection power board and connect your computer equipment and wireless router to this power board.
You can configure the wireless router to a different channel, one that is not used by your neighbours so that the wireless signal won't interfer with each other.
Have a look at the signal strength to your computer, if it is weak then move the router away from walls and/or raise the router to a higher location to improve the signal strength.
I hope this info helps you fix your problems.

I have a D-link model DIR-628 and I want to use it for direct my wireless printer, the printer setup ask me for the WAP passphrase to end configuration but I don"t have it. How can I get it?


The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the wireless printer, or laptops or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the wireless printer, laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.
