Hi All

I'm having major probs with my net..

Just three days ago, all of a sudden, my net drops off every 20secs like clockwork, only affecting the wireless.

I bought a new router yesterday to see if that would help, but it hasn't. At the moment, my router is connected to the modem, and my computer upstairs is running through the wireless connection from the router (not the modem) - though it makes no difference the problem happens with either.

My router is a NetGear N600 Wireless Dual Band... and my modem is a NetGear Rangemax wireless

My computer is running Windows 7 and has a Realtek RTL8191SU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter

(im connecting to my network via the 2.4ghz... not the 5ghz)

I've tried doing the whole, ipconfig/ release, etc but that hasn't helped.

I've tried using the router on different channels, 3, auto, 13, 14, 11, etc - not helping

I thought it might be the cordless phones in the house, but i switched them all off and removed the batteries and it still happens

I'm completely at a loss! :(

My Wireless computers ipconfig is:

Both badger-PC and NEWPC070207 are connected to the NetGear N600?

After "my net drops off every 20secs like clockwork, only affecting the wireless" what do you do to reconnect? And, by "drops off" do you mean that you lose the IP configuration?

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.

When you did that test did you also unplug the base station(s)?

Try with no encryption. If that helps try with WPA-PSK.

How about answering my post # 3 questions?

You tried the applicable possible fixes in the link VictoriaiiCe gave?
