Router's wireless signals cuts out entirely

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I come to you for help.

I've bought as many as 4 routers in the last 12 months. The router's signal cuts out entirely and does not come back. This is easily solved by unplugging and replugging the router (usually waiting no more than 1-2 seconds). I have to do this daily at different times (I see no pattern)

I am somewhat experienced in wireless networking (though not an expert by any means).
  • I have my wireless set to WPA2 with AES encryption.
  • I have tried WPA and WPA2-TKIP. I have tried different IP addresses for the router (192.168.2.1 for example).
  • I've tried updating the firmware to the latest version for my wireless network card.
  • I've also tried for the router.
  • I've tried four different routers with default firmware and with DD-WRT.
  • I've tried N, B/G, G/N and Mixed signals
  • The SNR is decent (I can take a SS once I get home)
  • I've tried all sorts of channels, but especially 1,6,11. Sometimes it holds up for 2 days instead of just 1 but eventually cuts out.
  • The only thing that I think is on the 2.4 ghz channel that I know of that I own/can control is our home phones.

I am tempted to RMA the routers. I'm not sure if they're just shoddy design or what but I'm finding this ridiculous. I've spent between $25 and $125 and they all have this issue.

Any ideas/tips/suggestions/advice/anything? I'm very frustrated.

(PS: I told my wife that our next place is wired or I don't move. No more wireless BS)

I read it when I was first having problems

Some devices that interfere with the 2.4 GHz spectrum:
- Bluetooth
- Microwaves not on
- Cordless Phones yup
- Other access points only 2-3
- Baby Monitors
- Electric Motors
- Some Florescent Lights
The rest is no.
