Ideacentre A530 Wireless signal drops frequently

Q: Ideacentre A530 Wireless signal drops frequently

I have an A530 that I recently updated to windows 10 from 8.1. At first it was working fine but then it started to lose wifi signal frequently. Every time i reboot, it works for a few mins but then loses signal again. I ended up connecting the computer with an ethernet cable and downloaded the latest realtek ethernet lan driver (vers. 10.001.0505.2015)but i'm still having the same issues. I didn't see any current driver updates that would effect the WiFi but i gave this driver update a shot anyway. I know the router is ok because other devices i have on the network do not have any issues. Any help would be appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre A530 running Windows 10. A few days ago windows installed an update and I had also clicked on something that popped up about updating Lenovo Drivers since then, my CD/DVD drive does not show up under My Computer, Device Manager or in the Bios. I can open the door and can hear it spinning if I put a CD or CD-ROM in. I've been through the online solutions such as deleting lower and upper filters in the registry key, adding a new DWORD registry entry, etc. I spent a day on chat with Microsoft support and had three techs access my computer to try things, including all the things I had already tried. They say that I need to get the CD/DVD driver from Lenovo, but I don't see one when I look up driver downloads for my machine. I also tried using windows built in Hardware troubleshooter. It says that it found a problems and needs to restart to fix them. One of the issues that it says it is fixing is "System Interface Foundation Device is not working properly." After the restart it finds the same issue and again says it needs to restart to fix it. I've been through this seemingly endless loop many times. I ran Lenovo System update. I also opened Lenovo Companion to do a hardware scan, but it says "Please install or update the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full funtionality of Companion, then restart the app after installation." and give me a button to click to install. If I do that it takes me online to download SystemInterfaceFounda... Read more

I have 2 Dell laptops at home connected to wireless router. One laptop has NO problems whatsoever with wireless connections. The other--Dell Latitude e4300--drops the wireless signal way too many times. I have to repair the connection--sometimes that helps, other times it doesn't, sometimes I have to reboot but still may not get the connection.

Some supplemental information--Several months ago, I changed internet service from Dish Network/Wild Blue to Frontier which bundled Internet, Phone, and TV services together. With Dish, I had a Linksys router. Now I have the router that Frontier came and installed. Ever since, this Dell laptop drops wireless constantly. My other laptop has no problems. I also take this laptop to work and use it wirelessly with NO problems. I've taken it on trips and used wireless with NO problems.

Can anyone help?

A:Frequently drops of wireless connection and no internet acces

Read other 6 answers


I am trying to track down a problem I am having with one laptop. Other wireless devices on the network are not showing the same problem. Connecting to the router by ethernet resolves the problem.

Over a 120 second period, the wireless connection drops and reconnects several times. Each time it drops it almost immediately picks up and re-connects. The "down time" is usually between 5 and 20 seconds.

I have updated the driver for the wireless card (it was out of date) but this did not resolve.

Reading posts here - I see you typically need to see a WiFi inspector screen shot - which I have attached. You can see a couple of "drops" on the graph.

Not sure what to do next. Your help is very much appreciated.

Hello, I don't know where to begin. When I log on and my start programs run, I receive a couple different messages about something not being in the library. I would check right now before writing this, but I'm afraid my wireless connection would take too long to fix again. I've been having problems for the past week. Very irritating. Lots of time spent trying to unfold this disaster.1) I do have a hijack this log if someone would look at it. 2) Maybe two or three months ago, I updated Internet Explorer7 to IE8 and now it doesn't work at all. I'm stuck, forced to use Mozilla. 3) The wireless router IS in my house and it IS encrypted. YES, I DO have the password key... 4) For the past couple weeks, if I am in a program like MOBSTERS by MYSPACE my computer will freeze. It happens every time, SHORTLY after going into the MISSIONS tab. I have to do a hard restart or it'll stay frozen for the entire day.5) On my wireless connection... IF/When I click "repair".... It will work for maybe 15-30 seconds MAYBE!! and then it will restart my computer. 6) I can't afford to pay for help, but I do have a few rare coins I would happily exchange for some help here.

hi guys,

i noticed that sometimes wifi signal on my home wireless drops to 4/5 and happens often that it doesn't show back 5/5 even if i move the PC and is only 20 cms from the router (just as now).. if i just disconnect and reconnect after a few seconds it will show 5/5 or if i restart the computer as well.

when i check the wireless stations available, mine shows 5/5 though and connected...so what's the deal?

Hi Gabrio,

Is your Wi-Fi adapter's driver up to date? Might want to see if there's a most recent driver.

Also, please download, install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector from your computer. Double click the Xirrus Icon on your Desktop, Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached the file here.

I have a home network set up currently running a custom built desktop with RangeMax wireless-N usb adapter and a fairly new Acer Aspire 5517 laptop with built in Broadcom 802.11g wireless adapter. Both are in same room about 20 feet from router. Desktop stays connected without any issues. Laptop goes through periods when it keeps dropping wireless signal. Both machines are running Win 7. Acer hasn't been a whole lot of help on this issue they made a few suggestions which seemed to help temorarily but problem has returned with a vengance, So I turn to my friends here at techspot. I have tried updating and rolling back drivers on laptop, switched id channels in speedstream router, rebooted router. I shouldn't have to keep doing this. What else should I be looking at? Like I said wireless desktop in same room has no problems. I need to test this machine somewhere else to see if its my router but I haven't yet.


A:Acer laptop drops wireless signal

I have had the same problem with a Acer Aspire 5920g, we narrowed it down to being a incompatible router. How long exactly can you stay connected for? Does it drop off after 5 minutes and then do you have to reconnect it or it will eventually reconnect itself?
The 5920g we had i personally believe went wrong because of the wireless n capable adapter it had which when we bought it was one of the first out!
One thing that i would recommend to try though, if you have (or can get hold of) a usb network adapter see if you have the same problem connecting your laptop through that. Then we may be able to narrow down if its hardware or software.

I saw a similar post that expired, so am creating a new post.

I have had an HP 6197CA for 6 months. This week it started dropping the wireless network, or connecting randomly at 1mbps when all other laptops, Blackberries, AppleTVs, etc. are getting about 20mbps when tested.

Specs: Windows 7 64 bit
Processor: Intel i7-2360QM 2.0 Ghz with Turbo boost technology

Wireless: Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n. Bluetooth wireless networking with WiDi

When I plug right into my router I'm getting 20 mbps.

I've tried a number of channels and changed the router to 20MHz. Any suggestions?

I am having an odd problem on one of my new laptops. I have a new gateway tablet laptop and am using wireless networking in my home, a linksys wrt54g, the wireless router is pretty close to me and I always show full signal. However, my speed has been dropping from 54Mbps to 24, and sometimes lower, even though I am at full signal.

This does not occur on my other gateway laptop.

If I repair the connection it reconnects me at 54Mbps every time.

Anyone have any troubleshooting tips?

Hello everyone, this problem has got to the point to where I am not sure what to do next. I am a pc technician for a living so I never usually have problems I cannot fix on my own,

I have a Dell Studio 1745 Laptop and its only a few years old, I recently upgraded my router to be wireless a year or so ago and have had a few d/c issues here and there but mostly has not been a problem.

Recently I have had tons of d/c issues while playing warcraft or browsing the internet in general, anything really.
So I made the mistake of recently updating my WNR1000V3 router's firmware from my laptop's wireless connection. After I did this I saw all sorts of warnings (none built into the firmware itself, sigh) that this was a big no no.

Since then my d/c issues have been horrible but what it does now is my connection will be completely normal then all of a sudden my wireless access point will switch to 'No Internet Access' and it will drop my internet.

The only way I can get it back is to go into the other room and reset the router by either unplugging it, or pressing the reset button on the back, once it reboots and everything, my laptop sees the connection again, and it has Internet Access fine.
Soo I went and made the problem much worse, the lame part of the situation is before I had this firmware issue I was getting this problem anyways.

I decided if I could flash a older version of firmware to the router using my desktop that is wired to the router I could th... Read more

My dad recently started having wireless internet trouble with his Dell Inspiron I6400. He will be connected to the wireless internet in our home and the computer will drop the wireless signal automatically. This happens approx every 2 minutes, but it will not do it on consecutive days or even weeks. This all started about 1.5 months ago, I have checked if his computer did updates around that time, thinking it is a glitch with a windows update, and there were none done during that time. The integrated wireless card is a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. And we get our internet through Hughes Satellite which is routed through their modem and then plugged into our wireless router, which is a Linksys WRT54G. The wireless signal is controlled on the computer by the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility, which I do not like, but when I uninstalled or disabled it, the wireless on the computer stopped working all together. I have changed the channels on the router, thinking it may be an interference issue, but that did no good. Also there are 3 other laptops in the house that use this same wireless signal, and this one is the only one that has problems with it.

If anybody has any suggestions or ideas to what it may be, please respond. I am an IT major, so please don't hold back on IT jargon.

I am having a frustrating time with my network. I work for an animall hospital and we have a wired/wireless network with 9 computers (mixed vista ultimate and xp pro with server 2003 sp2 on the server). I am using a Linksys WRT320n router.

My main problem is with my 2 wireless computers, a desktop with a US Robotics 802.11g turbo and one of my laptops, a Dell Inspiron 6400. They are no more then 30 feet from the router and always have a strong signal but will drop their connection and have to be logged of and logged back on. It is very frustrating because there is no rhyme or reason for it. Sometimes it will stay connected all day without dropping and other days it will drop 6-8 times.

I am not sure if this is related or not, but there are several wireless networks that can be seen by these computers including a Comcast WIFI and an Optonline WIFI.

Also, the network will slow down every so often (wired as well as wireless) and I am no sure what the is about. Our applications that we run are not very intence (no graphics or large packets being sent.) Some one said they thought there might be a some sort of a Windows Sharing App. running on the server that was bogging it down but I am not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I've seen this around a lot nowadays, many people are having the same problem as me..

I keep dropping internet connection. Sometimes I have to reset my modem and sometimes internet stops for a few seconds and comes back on, almost slows down. I've called comcast earlier today but as always, they never fix the problems. The operator reset the router from there and it looked like things changed but I still drop connection

Anyways here are specs of my modem:
Software Version: SB5120-
Hardware Version: 1
MIB Version: II
GUI Version: 1.0
VxWorks Version: 5.4

my signal at the momment:
Frequency 609000000 Hz
Signal to Noise Ratio 37 dB
Network Access Control Object ON
Power Level 10 dBmV (was 13 before comcast reset my router, moves from 9-10)

Channel ID 2
Frequency 36500000 Hz
Ranging Service ID 228
Symbol Rate 5.120 Msym/s
Power Level 54 dBmV (moves from 43-54)

My logs are a bit different now, I think because comcast did something from their place something changed but connection still drops(but havnt gotten a 3-critical notice since then)

A:Internet drops way too frequently!!

Read other 11 answers

I've had this problem for the last 3-4 months or so, I'm running Windows XP with a LInksys WRT-54G router. Whenever I am downloading a file, there is like an 80% chance my internet connection will drop within 10 minutes. The only way I can avoid this is downloading a file that takes less than 10 minutes to download, or occasionally I'll get lucky and it won't disconnect. Sometimes I won't even be downloading anything, just streaming a youtube video or something and then it mystery drops - very frustrating. The only resolution I can use is to reboot and then the internet is back up.

I spoke with my internet company about it, and they had said my internet connection hadn't dropped in 6 days according to them, so it was probably something on my end. I tried unplugging the router and then downloading some large files to see if the connection would drop. Sure enough it did.

So I'm pretty sure the router isn't the problem, the cable company (according to their employee) is not responsible either so any ideas what could be happening?

A:Internet frequently drops

Well, the first thing I'd try is a different computer downloading straight from the modem. If it still drops, it's the modem, interior wiring, or the ISP.

You need to narrow this down and make sure it's not your computer before beating on the ISP some more.
Let's run a test from your computer.
Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.

Randomly my internet will lose connection, saying "the default gateway is not available." It tells me to check the physical connection which isn't the problem, because I've checked it multiple times and found it to be fine. I can reconnect to the internet if I disable the network adapter and reenable it. Additionally, if I run the Windows troubleshooter, that will fix it as well.

In the meantime the wifi  connection is still working and strong (5 bars).I've tried all methods to solve this issue, dns  flush, dos, ip  address, driver update... I even connect my laptop to a usb wireless dongle to figure out if it is a hardware issue, but same result. I tried to connect to another wifi network but also the problem remains. Strangely when I connect my computer to my phone internet data via wifi it works perfectly.My phone, iPad are connected to my home's wifi  without any problem.Any idea? Many thanks in advance for your help.

A:Internet connection drops frequently

I'd recommend checking the channel setting and wifi encryption on the router, try setting the channel to a static channel (6 and 11 are normally safe bets) and ensure that the key encryption is set to WPA2-PSK, not auto or both WPA and WPA2, if you are unsure how to adjust these settings then contact your ISP

This problem is frustrating me a lot now. After upgrading to WIndows 10, I have noticed that my Wi-Fi connection frequently drops without any pattern whatsover. It just drops randomly and re-connects after 2-3 minutes. If I attempt to connect to the network in that period of 2-3 minutes, it will sometimes connect, and sometimes fail. I have 2 other laptops (1 of which has Windows 10) and they don't experience this problem.

I have searched online and tried tons of things. Nothing has fixed the problem so far! Below are all the things I tried. Please help if you have any suggestions or if there are known issues with Windows 10.

1. Updated the driver software
2. Uninstalled the driver and re-installed it
3. Unchecked the setting of 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' in Power Management of the wireless network adapter.
4. Uninstalled anti-virus to eliminate anti-virus as the issue.
5. Disabled 'Wifi Sense' options of 'Connect to suggested hotspots' & 'Connect to networks shared by my contacts'.

I am clueless as to what the issue is. Please help!

It is now hard wired from an antenna on the roof, down into the D Link router, and then the router is plugged into the switch. Everyone can access the internet fine, and the speeds are as advertised. That is until there is too much traffic, then we get line after line of "Dropped packet from xx.xx.xx.xx to xx.xx.xx.xx (IP protocol 6) as unable to create new session". It'll also say (IP protocol 17) instead of 6. Originally the Internet provider tech support decided it is because we needed a public IP address, so we tried that. Problem is still there. It mainly happens on sites with lots of ads, or when I have a few tabs open that are loading at the same time.

Any direction would be much appreciated!

Hi, I'm having this problem with my windows 7 OS Lenovo Ideapad Y450 laptop.
when i try to connect to the internet at home, it connects and before i could go into the internet browser, it drops again. this continues to happen for many times until i couldnt do anything with it.
what's the irony is that i have other laptops (vista OS) at home running with no problems , and when i am in school, my Lenovo laptop connects perfectly. no signs of dropping of connection at all.

A:Windows 7 connection drops frequently for no reason

get this free program called inSSIDer and run it on the laptop. Walk around your place and see where the drop it starts and ends. Then you need to buy a Repeater and place that in the dead drop zone. The repeater is 100% wireless no need for hard-wire cable from the router to it.

In the meantime make sure your router is reset and also have the latest firmware for it.

I am running Win 8.0 with the StartIsBack overlay and a wireless Motorola SBG6580 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway. I am 12 feet from the gateway and usually have 4 bars in signal strength but as I use the internet I drop to 3 bars and my web pages don't update. Within 1 minute after that I get No Internet Access on my wireless. I disconnect and reconnect and everything is good again for about 3 to 5 minutes then it happens again. If I reboot the gateway all seems good for a longer time. My wife runs Win 7.0 and does not have any problems. I am running a secure WEP wireless. My next door neighbor has an unsecured Motorola SB6800 gateway that I can connect to and am not dropped ever. If I connect an Ethernet cable to the gateway it works great. I am betting this must be a config problem in my laptop (Dell inspiron X14) - anybody have any solution to this?

A:Win 8 /Motorola gateway drops internet access frequently

The SB6580 is notorious for wifi drops. You are better off getting a SB6141, a wired router like the TP-Link TL-R600VPN, and an Access Point. I use the Engenius ECB-350 with no issues.

When your provider loads their firmware on the SB6580. There is something in there that causes wifi to become very poor in stability.

HI all, I had bought Lenovo Yoga 3 tablet (2 GB RAM) 16 GB 8 inch) in Dec-2016 in Bangalore INDIA. Model Number:  LENOVO YT3-850M. Andriod Marshmellow - 6.0.1 There is a problem with WIFI. It keeps dropping regularly even though tablet is within a feet distance from the WIFI router.In the WIFI menu the router name comes but if i select nothing happens and you can see that the tablet is not connected to any WIFI. The only way to temporarly solve the issue is to restart the tablet but that too lasts maybe 1 hr before the WIFI connection goes away. I saw in another thread of this community where it was suggested to do factory reset. I have done that too but the issue still exists. I have another PC and 2 mobiles which connects to the same router. So there is no problem with the router  Any suggestions how to fix?  Thanks.

Hi, as stated in the title I'm having awful trouble maintaining a stable internet connection.

It freezes regularly, the windows network diagnostic (which only runs when *not* frozen, otherwise just sits on a looping progress bar when network issue occurs) says "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings".

I switched from Chrome to Firefox, thinking that might be the problem but the issue persists. I don't believe I'm doing anything particularly network-intensive so I'm at a loss. I don't *think* it's the router as other wireless devices work fine.

I'm connected through LAN via tplink homeplugs to an EE Brightbox 2 router, using a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller, if any of that helps.

I'd read that it may be something to do with router MTU settings or automatically assigning a DNS to the PC, but I'm unsure how to change these settings. I'll paste any relevant settings if anyone can advise me what commands to run! *Edit* Also running AVG antivirus 2015, which I understand can cause problems.

Have been actively using Wireless G WTR54G router with multiple laptops working just fine. a few days ago, I started losing signal frequently and many times could not get back on. Problem affected all computers. If I connect via hardwire everything works fine. I even went out and bought a newer WRT54GS and am having the same problem. I have not made any changes in the house(ie new phone or microwave). Any suggestions welcome!

A:Losing Router Signal frequently

Read other 7 answers


We bought two new computers at the same time from a local Microcenter. Both are the Dell XPS 8700. One has more memory, space, etc. Both computers have Windows 7. They are side-by-side at the same desk with a shared monitor, mouse, and keyboard.

We've only had them a few months, but right from the start, the beefier computer has had problems with the wireless signal.

They both use the same network. We have a router and a booster.

When I look at the Wireless Network Connection Status for Computer A (the one with the lesser memory), it always shows a speed of 150 mbps. Always.

But Computer B sometimes shows 11.0, 35.0, 108.0, or 150. Sometimes it shows 11 when I first boot it up, then it eventually gets up higher. Sometimes it starts at 150 and then goes to 35 as time goes on. Usually when I reboot, it will go back to 150, but not always.

These computers obviously have different programs loaded.

I know zero about wireless connections. But I don't want to troubleshoot the router itself because Computer A is working fine. It must be something with the setup or what is running on Computer B?

Does this problem indicate that I have some kind of virus chewing up my bandwidth on Computer B? I've tried to be careful about what I installed, but...

I'll also add that we're using different anti virus programs. Computer A has AVG. Computer B has Avast. Both are the free versions.

Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Susie... Read more

A:SIgnal Speed Drops Way Down

I assume that you are talking about the nominal connection speed and not any actual measured performance. Is this correct?

Just from your description I'd guess that one possibility is that the problematic PC does not have the correct driver installed. If the PCs have the same wireless adapter compare/contrast the driver for each.

Another guess is that something is partially or intermittently blocking or interfering with the signal to the problematic PC; for example, maybe the other PC is in the path between router (or "booster") and the problem antenna.

I have Comcast cable with a MOTOROLA SB6120 SURFBOARD DOCSIS 3.0 router & modem in 1. I have tried every thing the Motorola suggested. Changing the channel on the modem, my SNR & downsignal numbers are in line with what they told me it should be. I think it's the modem itself, b/c I checked my connection it's goods. I had Comcast come out on 2 different occasions and both time the signal was good. I am starting to think this modem is a piece of *&^% and go with a different company if I do not get an answer soon.

hello everyone

I am running vista home premium 32 bit using a laptop with a wireless router. Every night between 7.15pm and 7.45pm
my broadband signal drops out, and sometimes once in the daytime. It only drops out for 5 minutes and then reconnects.
Can anyone explain why this happens and is their a cure.

regards calmat

A:broadband signal drops out

Hi Calmat,
Welcome to the forum.
I would first check what security you have regarding your broadband connection.
If weak security it can be tapped into, and for obvious reasons we don't want that to happen.

Also on the rise lately is persons using your broadband width to run theirs, so they can surf the net.

The details should be on your computer along with your providers information.

If you are unsure contact your provider and indicate your problem.

Hope this may help.

I'm sure other members will give advice to you.

If unsure get back to us anytime.

Hi, I have a problem with my Dlink 1310 Wireless Router. For a while now it has been happening but it has finally gotten to the point where I am tired of it happening.

Few things I have noticed or have done.

1) Watched modem when this happens and never shows sign of droppage in internet
2) Updated Firmware for router, and while it helped increase data transfer rates, the problem still persists
3) Usually when this happens I will click the network icon on my laptop/desktop and will see that my router has disappeared from the list of available networks entirely, then returns a few moments later.
4) Distance to router does not affect frequency of this problem

Any ideas what is going on?

How long has this been going on? What wifi card do you have in your computer? Have you updated the wifi card drivers? Do you have more than one computer in your house, and if you do, is it wireless, and if it is, does it also have this problem?

I have a newly purchased TP-LINK TL-WN951N wirelass pci adapter with bad packet loss and the peculiar problem of having near full signal untill i connect to the router, after which it quickly drops to one bar. A ping -t durin connection shows that immediately after connection the ping is reasonable and reliable, but after a few second, when the signal drops the ping suddenly starts timing out every 5 packets or so. I have installed the latest drivers from the website and no improvement. Other people using laptops in the same room have perfect signal and my usb wifi cards work fine untill they overheat. Note that the wifi card also has an antenna installed which is placed on top of my monitor. Any help would be much apreciated

On Topic: All i can suggest is if you have another computer try it in that or if you have another PCI slot try it in their if nothing changes i would suggest you get a replacement.

I have a netgear router that we got free with sky a year or so ago
about 2-3 weeks ago i moved the router upstairs using a phone line extension, and I had no problems at all for the first week or so
this week whenever i download anything my signal drops from 5 bars to 2, but its fine all the rest of the time, and its driving me mad because it takes ages to dowload anything and ages to load webpages, my download speed was about 2000KB/s but when it drops it drops to about 200/300 KB/s, and if im trying to load a webpage at the same time it can drop to below 100
Its happens the same for me whether my laptop is the only device connected, or if my brothers computer and mums laptop is connected aswel, their usage seems to have no effect.
iv tried turning router on and off again.

I dont know what more info u would need, all i know is that the netgear is a year or 2 old, our internet is through sky, and my laptop is of the hp presario v6000 range

oh n im not very tech savvy, so you may have to be obvious i explanations otherwise ill be asking alot more questions about what u mean

thankyou very much for any help/idea

I had a Netgear WPN824v3 router that worked great until it started dropping it's signal from time to time. I mean you'l be online wireless then all of the sudden nothing. Computer doesn't even see the router. Hardwire items are fine, it's only the wifi. Started just once in a while then increased in frequency. Simply powering down the router seems to reset it fine. Not hard just a pain to do seemingly all the time. I figured that it was going bad so I bought a new router. I like this one so I got another Netgear WPN824. This was about a year ago and did seem to "fix" the problem. Until......recently the new one is doing the exact same thing. What are the chances that I got another bad router. I guess it could happen but how likely is it, not very I'm thinking. I did get a good year out of each router, so I suppose it could just be the "life span" of this model. But I have seen routers run strong for several years so I'm not thinking this is likely either. Not sure which way to look. If it is that this model has a short life, so be it. I just won't get this model again. Simple enough right. But it just seems strange that two have the exact same issue, at about the same life span time. Could it be that I have something setup incorrectly in the router setting that cause overload of circuits??????? If any one has had this issue with this model router, I would appreciate any input.

Go to hardware, find your networkcard rightclick, properties, and go to energy tab, set "can save power" option off.
