Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)
My Belkin N1 wireless router has developed this habit of dropping it's wireless signal.
I recently moved my computer from one room, back to another and after plugging my Router back in, as the instructions asked, I noticed that night, the signal from the Router kept dropping for no reason. (The light on the front of the unit, also turns off -- go figure. : P )
My net connection is fine during each episode, and the Router isn't losing power. Every time I press the Reset button at the back of the wireless unit, my Wireless signal stays for a bit then it drops out again. It will continue doing this until it just decides to stop.
I called Belkin and the guy who 'helped' me, spoke so fast, I wasn't able to catch the 'update' I needed to download and seemed intent on kicking me off the line ASAP.
I took a punt and downloaded one of the updates for my router. Why they had more than one, is beyond me but anyway.
I tried to implement it through the software but it didn't recognise it and I couldn't use it.
Then I checked if my router even needed and update and the Belkin website said there were no new updates for my unit. So. I don't know who to believe at the moment.
Any ideas on why my router is dropping it's signal?
Thanks for your time,

Hi , you need more support, and I need for information:
1 - I need your topology, like the model all router, pcs and notebooks wireless, because this is important for my solved.
2 - The channel is frequency your wireless, it is many frequency and you can set up the best frequency when other channel is weak. This is a parameters for configuration in your router. Do you have the manual this router ? If yes, look this configuration router default, normally the default is not the best choose, but do you need know show this parameters in your router. check correct model router and write for me.
3 - Other part important this questions is the wireless interfaces in hers notebooks and pc. Both interfaces need same frequency 802.11n, if not same so they are 802.11g and throughput this are small.Or your interface same 802.11n forget this question.
I try help you solved this problem.

You can try configure only 802.11 n. Change wep or wpa, test again.
This issue no solved, turn off your wireless router, and search other signal around your room with his pc´s or notebooks wireless. If you see many networks wireless, check the channel less network and put your router this channel.
Test again and see solved this issue.
