Wireless Network Problem !
Posted on 2009-07-16
I been using a U S Robotics Max G Wireless Modem Router for a couple of years and it has performed perfectly without a problem. However, a few weeks ago the ADSL performance started to drop and then the device would not connect at all.
I therefore bought a new Belkin F5D8631-4 and ADSL was restored immediately but the wireless performance was patchy with some devices struggling to connect and speed very slow. Nothing, like the previous rock solid performance of the U S Robotics Max G.
I then bought a Netgear DG834GT (I had read that it was a very stable "bomb proof" device) and again, ADSL performance was good and the wireless performance was definitely better than the Belkin. However, after just 24 hours of use the Netgear wireless performance has a problem as well. We have a laptop that connects wirelessly to the Netgear for ADSL access. This will work perfectly for several hours but then suddenly the wireless connection with the Netgear DG834GT will be lost with the message "Acquiring Network Address". Rebooting the DG834GT restores wireless access to the laptop immediately.
Can anyone please advise what the problem is ?
The devices on the Network (but not all connected at once) are as follows :
Windows PC (connected via LAN cable)
Windows laptop (intermittent disconnections)
iPhone (rock wireless solid connection, never fails)
Logitech Duet Music Server
Any helpful advice would be much appreciated.
