Strange wireless issue

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
PLEASE see post #11 now

I am not exactly sure why my Cisco Linksys E1000 (with the latest firmware) is dropping my wireless signal every few hours. My sig rig can connect fine to the ethernet on the back of the router, but the issue is that the wireless signal itself is either working 100% fine or not working at all.

I have reset it by unplugging it, and rebooted from 192.168.1.1 yada yada.

Anyway, I am not sure why my signal seems to drop out wirelessly even though my ethernet connected desktop is going along just fine. Occasionally when the desktop computer goes to sleep the router's signal will kick back on, but this theory doesn't make any sense since in device manager I have unchecked all the power saving/waking options.

I really don't get what is going on here and might just be getting a new router if I can't solve it.

Thanks for the help to come!

Look at section five. There are also links to free tools there for you to use.

no luck with that kind of troubleshooting, I think it is the router itself. Something must be wrong with it in terms of hardware. I just don't get why the desktop which is plugged into it directly never has an issue, but none of the laptops can connect. I can see my network on the laptop, but when it goes to connect nothing happens. I have to constantly unplug the router and plug it back in. Then the signal drops out completely after a few hours.

Check the router for firmware updates. You never know.

Is it overheating? Where is it located?

I updated the firmware today. It is behind my monitor, speakers and near my computer and landline. I honestly don't get why I can see the router on my laptop but it won't connect to it because it has no internet signal yet maintains a full broadcast signal. Weird stuff imo.

i'm not about to disable the feature that I like most about my router. Whole reason I got it was to upgrade from b/g....

I really am at my wits end here, I have a feeling there is a short in the wireless part of the router. When I unplug and then plug it back in, the lights flicker intermittently and the router does not start up. I have to unplug from the outlet, then plug it back in...then unplug the AC cable on the back, and plug it back in to get it to power on. That is why I think there is a short.

If I can't get a good answer by tomorrow, I am buying either THIS:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833320062 or THIS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=N750%20DB

or whatever someone says is AWESOME

How about something like this. I have the 3500L and has been running solid with dd-wrt for months now without any dropped or no connections problems.
