Wireless signals dropping
Posted on 2009-02-12
I have 2 clients who live next door to each other. Both have cable from Cablevision for internet access. Both have brand new Linksys wireless routers. Both have kids upstairs with wireless cards in their PCs accessing the Linksys. Both are experiencing the same problem with internet connectivity being dropped frequently. The PCs that are in the parents office and have the cable modem and wireless router connected to them have no problems. In both houses, the kids' PCs are about 25-40 feet from the base computer.
Can anyone suggest a reason why this might be happening? Do the new Linksys Wireless routers have a problem? Could there be a radio or communications tower in the area that is causing interference?
Finally, how do I get around this problem without hard wiring the house?
thanks in advance.
