Exclamation Linksys WRT120N Intermittent Wireless
Hello,
I have a Linksys Wireless-N Home Router, WRT120N to be exact, and I have been having problems with my wireless. My wifi losses internet connection intermittently. This does not happen when I am connected directly to the router with a Ethernet cable. I have redone all the settings many times(like 6) and Im still having the same problem.
I really dont want to have to buy a new router, so please help me. Thanks.

This loss of internet access happens on multiple computers simultaneously? Do they maintain communication with the router?

Yes it happens on multiple computers. And yes they maintain communication with the router.

That's indeed strange. All I can suggest is to make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset to factory defaults and reconfigure.

It seems to be fine whenever I reset it to the factory settings. But when I try to add security to my wireless thats when it get buggy. Any idea why that is?
P.S. I need to have security on my wireless so other people in my neighborhood dont steal my internet.

For two different Windows computers where you normally use them ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

It seems to be okay now but I'll go ahead and post a screenshot just in case there is still a problem.

Those other two networks are on the same channel, but the signals are so weak they can't be causing interference.

Keep the Xirrus tool installed and grab a screen shot when/if things get troublesome again.
