About 2 days ago my wifi signal kept crapping out. the router is about 20-25 feet away from my computer, but it has not been moved, nor has the computer.
I can pin googles ip, I can ping my modem, I can even ping the router, but the second I open firefox and type in the router IP it doesn't connect. It doesn't connect to anything. The wifi signal is excellent (though that comes and goes) and the router works because a wired computer works fine (tis how I'm posting this). I can't understand why it would crap out randomly and be irreversible.
The IP address has been switched back and forth from Static to Dynamic, the router has been reverted back to the factory settings. The Wi-Fi link on the computer has been part of a network bridge and not... nothing seems to work, and nothing seems to explain why I can ping an ip, but not access it via a web browser.
any help is appreciated.
I came across the same trouble after several hours power out of the router (has to move DL-524 from room shelf to closet). In my case it lost WiFi security configuration (was no encryption and must be WPA/PSK). I set WPA back, 64-byte PSK key was not corrupted, and Dl begun to run smoothly again. After that I got an experiment and powered off Dl for a night, WiFi security settings was lost again. My be it's a feature of the device, may be I'm (we are) not so lucky :). Try to check "Wireless setup" - hope it'll be helpfull...

You should test the connection with another phone, tablet or wireless computer, to exclude the router. If the other device also suffers from the connection, you know it must be the router. Only when you 100% certain (Don't make assumptions, always test) it is not the router, you could start with the phone, like to reset it or setup the complete connection again.
B.t.w. when your phone does connect to another router and works fine, agin that would be prove your router needs all the attention.
On my Iconia when I see this show up it will be from a low power or a poor wii connection. Basically the signal strength is too low which means the speed drops to the point where everything is timing out before it gets loaded.
There are a couple o causes to check . One is too far from the wifi router.the farther away the lower the signal the slower it goes. You have objects blocking the signal such as steel reinforced safety windows or steel mesh in walls. These can block the signal. I have one are where I'm all of 10 feet away and it will barely connect. I have to move about three feet to the side and get ull strength and speed. The orientation of your tablet can effect i you can use a marginal signal or not. Try aiming the edge with the volume buttons towards the wifi. The antenna is oriented in a way that this will slightly improve the signal. The other thing is that your tablet can be fine but your wii router is having problems with its wifi sections. Certain brands will show more errors and then difficulties in connections in as little as a year old (on some about half that). The Iconia has a rather good wifi ability so I wouldn't blame its hardware but would look at the location orientation etc as I have mentioned.
Few basics need to be taken care of. Electronic devices like fax machines, printers, halogen lamps, speakers or anything which runs on electricity needs to be atleast 2 feet away from your router. Make sure that there is a distance of 2 feet or more between your modem and your router.
Move the router away from the computer, like on the top shelf of the desk, and away from any cordless phones and other devices.
Try moving the antenna as well, choose a diffrent channel like 11 instead of default 6.
It sounds like you are getting some stron RF interference from one of the devices near the router.
I hope this helps resolve your issue.
