Default Wireless Problems.

Guys been having a weird issue lately. My Wireless works for a day and then keeps going on Limited or No Connectivity on both my desktop and Laptop (only 2 with wireless).

After a router reboot, it is back to normal, after a day or 2 it starts doing it again. I'm getting a little frustrated on this, a little help would be appreciated.

It is a D-Link DIR-625. Some settings if it helps..

802.11 Mode: Mixed 802.11n,g and b
Channdel Width: Auto 20/40Mhz
Trasmission Rate: Best (automatic)
Visibility: Visible

Security Mode: WPA-Personal

WPA Mode: Auto (WPA or WPA2)
Group Key Update Interval: 3600 secs

Once again the prob is the wireless will stop working, message will be Limited or No Connectivity.

Thanks

Check your adaptor on both computers, making sure that the setup to shut down the adaptor for Power Savings is not enabled.

Oh good catch, the laptop I'll check, but dekstop, win XP. never seen any option like that. I'll double check though.

But in general, even if try and connect manually after the error message I get no luck, I try repairing the connection, it just sticks on repairing the ip address and never passes that. When at that time I can use my wired connection. I got 4 computers, 3 desktops and 1 laptop, the 2 desktops in the basement are wired connections, no problems, the wireless ones on the first floor always give me problems, even though there is always a 3/5 signal strength on average at all time.

Thanks John.

you could also try changing your wireless settings perhaps the communication is getting confused. Also see if you can get a 3rd party firmware like tomato for the d-link. Perhaps dd-wrt ? i've been using a linksys wrt54g with tomato for a couple of months now without any hiccups and no reboots. Also if your using a mac filter try deleting the exclusion database and try readding. And finally try a hard reset on the router to see if that helps
