Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
Hi, I've been using the wireless router for about 2 years now without any problems. I normally use my laptop from my bedroom upstairs and the modem/router is in the study downstairs.
I never had a problem connecting to the internet from that distance but just yesterday, the router started acting up. My laptop detects the router occasionally but it will disappear from the network list suddenly. I tried using another laptop to connect from my bedroom but its still the same, so it cant be a problem with my laptop. When I tried connecting close to the wireless router (in the study), there wasnt a problem. That means there still is a wireless signal only not as far as it was before. I tried resetting the router several times but it's still the same.
Any ideas why it's happening? Can it still be saved or is it time for me to get a new router?
Have you tried switching channels in the router I have seen suggestions to use challen 1 or 11 instead of the often defaulted 6. You may have increased traffic from your neighbors and non-it devices like wireless phones.
