Wireless Keeps Dropping

Message 1 of 2

All,  I have a Westell 327W modem for my DSL connection.  My wireless connection drops quite often.  I have reset the modem, "repaired" the connection, and turned the modem off/on, but all those remedies seem to last momentarily before I lose wireless capabilty.  Often, I cannot even repair the connection.  When the modem is hardwired into the laptop, there are no issues and internet access is flawless.  It's only the wireless that is a problem. Do I have a bad modem?  Any other possibilities?  TIA

Intereference can cause problems with Wireless Network Connections.


Try logging into the router and changing the wireless channel to 11.


You can also change to Wireless G Only, if all of your devices support it.
