A week ago, my connection went bad. Nothing had changed on my device side or router configuration. Using standard FIOS router with wireless WPA2. Couldn't consistantly browse the web or get a reliable connection, sometimes it would be ok, most of the time not. While investigating, I found that pinging a site would either time out or have very high times, in the thousands. I then pinged the router, 192.168.1.1 and saw the same results. Contacted FIOS, who had me hard reboot the router, so after reworking my wireless security settings; problem seemed to be ok, however moments after we hung up...it came back. When I plug on via ethernet, it works fine. I'm on a newer laptop with wireless 802.11 n; other 2 laptops and android/iphone are also usually connected. the other laptops are 802.11 g. Been reading and debugging for several days and just before giving up and calling FIOS again; I went through the router settings. Tried switching the 802.11 mode from compatibility to performance and after the change took, my laptop pings dropped to under 1 ms with no timeouts. This is great, however, I'd like to get my 802.11 g devices back online. Before I plug another router in and try using it as a connection point, I figured I'd post here and see if anyone else has experienced this issue, or if you think this could be a router hardware issue or something else in my network?
