Question about Linksys WRT300N Wireless Router

1 Answer

Connection to linksys wrt300-n router drops frequently from wirelessly connected laptops - even when sitting in the same room mere feet away from the router. I've set it up to use MAC filtering and AES encryption. Prior to two or three weeks ago (before I went on vaction) it worked fine, now is causing issues. Updated the firmware to 1.03.6 with no improvement. Ping -t 192.168.1.1 results are: Request timed out.

Loosing internet connection every 15 minutes


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.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router
