While some loss is expected. You can change channels. 1-6-11 are the best for cutting signal loss because they do not overlap.. 2.4GHz device in operation, like a cordless phone or microwave oven can cause signal loss. Metal in walls, electrical devices and wires can also cause loss.

How many devices are connected to the wireless? Are you moving about when you lose the signal? Is the wireless Secured? If you have other computers/laptops connected do they lose signal? Many thing will cause loss of a signal, much like a cell phone.

Lose nettalk connection from router after on phone for twenty minutes


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Loses connection w. remote computer I have a laptop one room away. The laptop accesses the internet and printers from this location. Most of the time it works. However, it will suddently lose the conection...


Check if this router is stronng enough interms of it signals. Check on the laptop the signal strength of the conenction.

If the signal strength is poor you can either move closer to the wireless router or vice versa or can get an access poitn to boost the signal.

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks

Netgear software, picks up wireless network then loses connection moments later


Netgear generally functions well. You may simply need to adjust the location of the router. Check the signal strength when you do have a signal. You may be losing a signal intermittently because the signal is weak. If your signal is "good" or better and the signal is lost without apparent reason, there could be a malfunction with the router itself. Check the router when the signal is lost and ensure the power light is on and the connection light is on.

If your signal is weak and you lose it intermittently, adjust the location of the router

If your signal is strong and you lose it intermittently, you may be experiencing a connection problem at the source or the power may be cutting out at the modem. The more likely answer is the source signal interruption. It is rare for a power supply to go bad in those.

Check the source connection INTO the router.

You can also reset the router. You'll want to unplug everything. Unplug the power supply from the wall AND from the modem and leave it unplugged for at least 2 minutes. There may also be a very small recessed reset button (the kind that you need to use the end of a paperclip to press). Press and hold that for 10-30 seconds to reset while it's still plugged in.

When you plug everything back in, plug the power in first (to the wall and modem), then connect the source cable. Wait until you have a signal confirmation light, then try to connect with your computer.

Last but not least, the connection problem could be with your computer. Try pluging directly into the source if possible and see how that works. Then try just moving close to the wireless modem and see how the signal strength is and if you lose the signal the same way. If there is a switch on your computer to turn on the wireless feature, make sure it's all the way on. Sometimes these are kind of stuck between 'on' and 'off' and that can cause problems.

I hope one of these suggestions helps you!

Losing connection from the router


You may have an IP address conflict with another machine. why don't you just plug the router into the computer to see if that solves your problem first. If it doesn't. you should contact your internet carrier. You can also try this: turn everything off, and unplug EVERYTHING for a few minutes. Plug the AC adapters back into the devices FIRST, then into the wall. this will often drain power and solve IP issues.

Edimax IEEE 802.11g 54Mbps won't stay connected to the internet.


your firewall may be attempting to keep out an intruder and inadvertently killing your connection to aid in the process, if you're using a shared Wireless Access Point or WAP there may be a conflict which is causing the problem whenever someone else logs onto the wireless access point. is this an access point that is close to you (in the same room or building) or is it an access point that you share with a group of people that is coming in from outside your immediate area? because if it is either the second scenario it may be weak signal strength in which case you'll be able to tell simply by getting closer to the access point and see if you lose your signal, if you don't lose your signal after getting closer to the access point you'll know it's the signal strength and you may need to get a stronger wireless card or see about extending the range on the one you have.

let me know

Getting better signal quality on wireless network?


Under the tab 'wireless' find the strint that says 'Channels', and change to another one (anyone) and then give it a day to see if you lose connection, if you do, go back and change it again. Try downloading the latest drivers and software. The WRT55AG and WRT54AG are known to drop signals. These routers are like cell phones, you have to find a good spot for them.
