Why does my wireless network connection keep losing speed till it totally drops ?
Posted on 2009-12-21
When I connect my windows xp laptop to my linksys router, it sometimes connects at 54mbps as it should, but then the internet connection will get dropped and it will connect back at a random speed, down to 2mbps. It will be 24, 18, etc, and will take a while to reconnect. Other laptops on the network never have any issues, always stay connected without issue, and at the full 54mbps speed. The router is couple months old, and OS is a couple month old installation as well. No problems with viruses or spyware, I checked.
I reinstalled the wireless driver, but that did not solve the problem. The firmware on the router is original and untouched, no 3rd party stuff.
