Loss of WIFI Connection Constantly

Message 1 of 3

I have DSL and uses Westell VersaLink 327W Gateway. I lose wifi connection very often and have to reset every single day. I have been a Verizon costumer for over ten years and is never late on my bills. What is the problem? What is causing this? Anyone?

Have you tried changing the channel that your wireless network is broadcasting on?

Have you tried changing from WEP security to WPA2?

Have to tried relocating any devices that might be providing interference out from between your PC and router?

When you lose wifi connection, are you still able to see the SSID of your network, or does it disappear entirely?

Unfortunately the 2.4 Ghz band where 802.11b/g operates has a number of permitted uses, and as long as the purpose is not to deliberately interfere with other uses, these other uses are all permitted. There are a wide range of devices involved from alarm systems to cordless phones to bar code scanners. The effect of the other users of the 2.4Ghz band is to reduce the signal to noise level for your application, often to the point where the your application become unreliable or unusable. While it is possible that changing the channel you are using will help, don't be suspired if it doesn't. The choice of encryption has no bearing on the problem. Also relocating your wireless access point closer to the computer that uses the wireless signal  may help.

 

You might check to see just how many other wireless networks your computer can see. The more you can see, the worse the interference problem is going to be.

 

If changing the channel doesn't get you to where you need to be, and your wireless device supports 802.11n you might want to consider simply buying a dual band 802.11n wireless access point (they aren't very expensive), disabling the wireless on your 327W and connecting your new wireless access point to one of the ports on the modem/router. The details of how to do so are covered in many other threads. 802.11N can operate in the 5Ghz band, where there are generally fewer users, and more 'real estate', so the chances of serious interference are substantially reduced.

 

Good luck
