Intermittent disconnect my wireless connection ?
Posted on 2006-07-18
I have a Linksys wireless router. What I have set into the router is
1) my pop3 account information
2) use MAC filtering (just enter the MAC addresses of my 2 notebooks)
3) Ask the router to start assigning IP address from 192.168.1.100
4) Limit the total wireless connections to 8
All other settings are using the shipped default.
Yet, when I connect to the internet via that Linksys wireless router, it show OK for around 20-30 min. but after that, the computer always shows reconnection and tell you the reception is excellent ... etc. This sometimes cause error in my MS outlook cause it retrieve email from the server at every 5 minutes and in case of disconnection. Error resulted. Besides, it cause the IE to take longer time to retrieve pages from the web and sometimes web page not found resulted due to connection broken. In most case, I just need to wait for a while, it will reconnect automatically. But in some worst cases, I need to reboot my PC. And to the most worst case, even rebooted, the notebook can not get the IP address from the router.
What is the problem with my Internet connection ?
Is this problem related to the router or it is a PC problem ?
Can anyone help ?
