A couple of additional things:
If the cordless phone is the 2.8ghz range they can majorly interfere with each other.

Sometimes wireless security cameras are also in this range and they can interfere with each other.

Also do a wireless network search and see if there are signals from other access points in the area. Changing to a different channel (1-11) on the router can help sometimes no matter where the interference is coming from and sometimes have to go to a different system like a 5.8ghz phone.

This could be due to many factors. A few to look at is:

Move the router closer to the PC

Update the drivers on the PC, making sure the wireless network card is not using windows drivers alone (re-installing the drivers from the CD or website will fix this.)

If the wirless network on the PC is a USB pen type, then change it to a different port. Or, it may need USB 2. If your PC does not have this, you can purchase a USB 2 PCI card from ebay for under £10.

Try unplugging any DECT (digital cordless) phones in the house, as they may be interfering.

Try adjusting te antenna's, make sure that there are no obstacles, that are blocking the signal.
Also make sure that other devices are not interfering with your routers signal.

Keep losing the signal. appears that the power


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I can not make fixed number of users that's into my network while i am using two switch are connected to this router plz help.thanks for your caring


If you are using NAT then have the router only assign a limited number of IP addresses. If you are not using NAT then doing so can help to limit the number of users. keep in mind though that the router is slower than the PC when refreshing IP connections. So if a PC loses it's connection you may not be able to log back in for several minutes to several hours.
