Hi guys, I have been constantly irritated by my D-Link DI-524 router that was bought some time ago. The problem is that it consistently gives an inconsitent wireless signal to ALL 3 laptops in my home. 2 of them are running on Vista and one on XP and all of them constantly lose internet connection due to the lack of signal.
My home isn't very big and the laptops are all within 10 metres of the router. I did a -t ping to the router from all 3 laptops and all 3 gave me the similar results, which can be seen from the image attached. There is constant spiking of the reply time and even a request timed out once in a while. The signal strength displayed on the windows wireless connection manager is also consistently low.
I've contacted D-Link and even downloaded their latest firmware but all my efforts seem to be in vain. I was wondering if any of you have any idea on how to solve this problem because I game online regularlly and the spikes will cause me to lag or even get disconnected.
I was also considering upgrading to a D-Link gaming router if this problem persists. Do you guys think it's a better idea or should I just go for another brand?
Thanks for the help in advance. P.S. please be a little forgiving for this is my virgin question. =P
