Wireless router dropping connection

Our internet was running perfectly with a perfect signal 5/5 bars.. and it suddenly went down to 2/5 bars out of no where & the internet was dropping ALOT!.. we didnt move anything or something like that nothing changed..

this is what i have done so far..
1. i bought a new wireless router.. didnt work
2. i bought a more powerful router with extra range.. didnt work
3. i got new cords to hook everything up... didnt work
4. i reset everything.. didnt work
5. i got rid of the cordless phones.. didnt work
6. called linksys .. and went through setting configurations.. didnt work


We have a motorolla cable modem.. its not the modem i called and said it was working perfectly and i dirrectly connected the computer to the modem and the internet did not drop.

Our wireless router is a linksys wrt160N

*note: we have digital phone from teleblend.. so the hook up goes cable modem.. digital phone... wireless router.. its all set up correct

Can anyone help me =/ ?

  1. Have you tried setting the router to a different wireless channel? 1 or 11
  2. yes...
  3. This same thing happened to me today for no reason. I have the same router. It has worked fine for 2 years and all of a sudden I have to be right next to it for it to work. Very strange. Did you ever figure this out?

    What GigaHertz range do you use? 2.4GHZ Blends in with cellphones-microwaves-CB Radios. 3.0GHZ or 5 GHZ shouldn't have any problems. Maybe the Government Like Enemy of The State or Deus EX are on to you :o
