For some reason, my wife’s computer keeps disconnecting from the wireless ethernet connection. And I mean constantly-- every 10-15 minutes. When it’s connected, speeds seem good and signal quality is “excellent”, but these constant disconnects are driving her nuts.
Here’s the config:
D-Link 614+ wireless router/access point
D-Link 520 PCI wireless card
Latest drivers and firmware on everything as of 3 weeks ago. Everything is slow vanilla 802.11b, no bleeding edge 802.11g or 802.11a crap.
She is exactly one room over from the 614+ router/ap, so there’s a grand total of one wall between them-- maybe 15 feet?
There isn’t any pattern to the disconnecting that I can tell-- no microwaves, cordless phone usage, etc. It’s frequent, but not regular.
The odd thing is that the downstairs access point (D-link 900-AP+) for the Tivo stays connected to the very same access point without any problems at all. I just checked the logs on its HTTP interface and yep, it’s been connected for a week plus!
Any ideas? I’m relatively new to the wireless stuff, but this perplexes me.
