1. if you haven't done it yet go to the manufacturers site and see if there is a firmware update. 2. here is a set of instructions to follow for all wireless routers. 1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox) 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly. 8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router 9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room. Some ISP have bandwidth caps . if you have exceeded this you may not have connectivity. Check with you ISP ( Internet Service Provided).
Most wireless routers transmit over the 2.4GHz frequency, which is the same as many cordless phones. If you can, move the router or the phone so that they are far away from each other. Otherwise, the easiest thing to do is buy a cordless phone that operates on another frequency. (Most phones display their frequency on their packaging.)
1. if this is wireless connection then you will have to possibly move the router at least 10 to 20 feet away from any other wireless device or television, cell phone,cordless phone or TV antenna or digital TV box. Also florescent light will affect the signal from a wireless connection.
Make sure the latest wireless card driver is installed in the computer.
Locate the wireless router higher and away from walls. Locate the wireless router away from cordless phones and microwave ovens these can cause interference.
You could be getting interference from other wireless access points or wireless routers in your area. Check the wireless broadcast channels in your area, and select one that is unused or one that has the weakest signal strength.
Hi, you should try changing your wireless channel in the router setup. 1) log into your router. 2) go to the wireless setup page. 3) change the 'Wireless Channel' from auto to 1-11. 4) re-boot your router and re-connect to it. 5) use your cordless phone and see if the connection drops out. 6) repeat steps until you have a stable channel
Since this problem happens with all devices -- and they are probably located in various places -- that rules out either the devices or physical problems (like long distances between the device and the router or thick walls). You're probably right that it is a problem on the router end of the connection.
You should definitely try replacing the router before changing the internet connection, but before you do that, you should try to see if your outages correspond to the use of either a cordless phone or microwave oven -- both of those emit radio waves on a frequency close to wireless routers. Next time you lose a connection, see if anyone's on the phone.
If that's your problem, then changing your router (or your internet service provider) won't fix it. You can switch from a 2.4 Ghz cordless phone to a 5.8 Ghz model to avoid interference. Or switch back to ethernet cables.
Your issue, of course, may be elsewhere, but I have known a number of folks whose intermittent connection problems were due to cordless phones.
