Question about Linksys WRT300N Wireless Router
Sometimes it works up to 5 hours straight, sometimes it disconencts after 10 minutes. even putting my laptop right beside the router does not help. after every disconnect it fails to reconnect also
Ok for starters this wireless technology is still in it's early stages and is being tested while wireless G is still in play. Most of the time if you continue to get kicked off or get no connection at all, this is due to firewall settings. When a device connects to a router of any kind it must send and recieve a signal. Unless you have a static address on your laptop. (an IP address you placed into your wireless adapter setting) Your IP address sometimes changes, it does this when you turn off your computer, log off, etc. Sometimes when reconnecting to your wireless network the IP address changes because it is a dynamic address. A static address never changes. I have found that with some wireless technology devices if a firewall is setup with windows XP the IP address changes thereby not allowing the device to reconnect to the network or be recognized based on the IP change. I have found this alot with wireless printers, external Network storage devices, etc. Sometimes when you take down the firewall your computer will reconnect to the network. Or just go back to the basics: Right click onto the wireless icon at the bottom right near the clock. You should have an option asking you to repair, this helps most of the time.
Most common problems with having be disconnected from your network is when you have a laptop and you use it outside of home on or in another location. Any more questions I have tons of answers. I can also walk you through a network setup!
