View Full Version : WIFI Router issues
02-04-2008, 10:13 PM
I have a Pre-N router (Belkin) which is up to date in its firmware and I am running it WPA secured. However, I keep getting knocked off my own network by some unknown factor. There is another secure network which seems to come up every time we get kicked, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how if I am sitting 5 feet from my router how they could bump me off. Part of me wonders if its just an issue with Pre-N routers...as my father owns the same model and has similar issues with the signal, but I am not sure. All I know is that this is bull sheit...I bought this router when Pre-N was the top and it was not cheap..so to feel like my old G router does a better job is kind of annoying.

It's a basic one... but there's always the changing the channel option. Change it to 2 or 7 or 11 or something far away from whatever it is now.
Maybe the other network has the same brand router... and the SSID's and channels are the same, but encryption different? Hence the bounce? Guesses, but could be. Could try going with a different SSID, too if it's still at the default.

Scan the area to see what other WAPs are running & what channels they're using, and pick a new, unused channel (if one is available). If there are no unused channels, pick the same channel as the weakest signal you're getting.
Also try running it with encryption turned off & see if that makes a difference.
