i seem to be having issues with my wireless router lately. the issue seem to be that on any computer i have that uses wi-fi it is able to see my router but is not able to connect to it and the only way to solve it is to reset the router. i have tried changing the channel on the wireless on my router multiple times but still have this issue. all i can think of is that one of the computers i have that was wired was just changed over to use wi-fi. if anyone has any suggestions i would appreciate them. my info is below.
my router is a Belkin F5D7230
i have a PC and a PS3 wired to the router and i have 2 laptops, one desktop PC, and a nintendo Wii connecting to it wireless
i am thinking now it just might be down to finding the right channel i just switched the channel yesterday and now it will just lose the wifi once a day now but the router is like 3 years old. i had this problem before but by fining the right channel that time i was never had to reset the router at all. but now it started again and the only change i made is having another computer use wifi. i do not have the router setup
also i am not using mac filtering, mixed mode enabled, and using WPA/WPA2 encryption.
i hope i have made everything a little more clear.
thanks for the info. i think i am just going to get a new router now anyway. i keep switching channels but keep losing connection with wifi no matter what channel i am on and the router is in a basement so and i am not seeing any other wireless networks with a computer down there. the router is 3 years old anyway so i think its going bad
unfortunately not possible. they have my main DSL connection in the basement and already using a long phone cable from the jack to the router. i'm stuck. oh well i went 2 and a half years with no resets hopefully it will be that way again someday
