Wireless Network Dropping Out- NetGear WPN824 V.2 & Atheros AR5006EXS Wireless Network Adapter

Hi There,

Having some frustrating issues with my wireless network at home. Utilising a combination of a NetGear WPN824 V.2 router and an Atheros AR5006EXS Wireless Network Adapter. Every few minutes the network drops out despite the fact there is adequate signal strength and the computer indicates a connection to the network!

I have tried installing a new driver for the adaptor and have been researching ways of resolving the problem other than buying a new router or returning my pc to have the adaptor replaced.

Is it possible to fix this problem by changing the channel, wireless selection mode, buffers, scan valid interval, etc... Any suggestions guys?

Fergus,

Steps to troubleshoot are as follows.

1. check the physical connections. Go to a broadband testing site to see if you are connecting correctly b/c i am assuming you are wanting to connect to the internet. if not see next step. A common problem with internet connections is the timeout setttings on netgear you should set it to 0 for indefinite.

2. if your problem is related to just the connection between your pc and your router then you should just plug a lan cable in first to see if you can connect to the router without dropouts. This will help you to determine if the problem is with the router.

3. If it is the router then you need to double check your router configurations. Common problems are firewall rules, port forwarding settings etc etc.

4. if it is not the router then double check that the pc and the network card is working properly. If it is then make sure the the wireless adapter support the protocl eg. wep, wpa, wpatsk etc..make sure they are the same and that you should be setting the network key.

5. one final check is you need to turn off some of the rangemax functionality on the router b/c your wireless adaptor probably doesnt support it. try unsecure connections for a while to see if it works then start adding functionality to determine which one is the culprit.

I hope this help.

Netgear wireless router: WNA3400 Netgear wireless USB adapter: WNA1100 Can get it to connect at 150 mbs but after a few minutes it always goes back to 65 mbs. Thanks.


It seems that your network is getting wireless interference and that is the reason why the adapter is dropping the connection to a lower speed. Please go ahead and change the wireless channel on the wireless router to resolve the issue.

Please revert for any further clarification.

I've installed the NETGEAR WN111v2 - It says that it have connected to the internet. but i yet no internet is found.


Open your run option on the start menu, type in msconfig, run it. go to the startup tab. uncheck the box next to Netgear WN111v2 Smart Wizard.

Next go to the start menu, My Computer. Double click Local Disk (C:), double click Program Files, double click Atheros, double click ACU (atheros client utility). Select Options from the main menu bar. Select "Select Client Software". Choose Windows. Hit OK. Close atheros and you should be in business.
