    Alright, for last year or so our wireless internet has been having problems. Why I didnt post on this forum before, I have no idea. Anyway, the problem is the wireless seems to cut out sometimes. Its doesnt happen to the ethernet cords coming straight from the router though. The problem goes away when we restart our router. We have tried replacing the router with a good one and replacing the modem but it hasnt helped. Does anybody know what the problem is?

    What does 'wireless seems to cut out" mean? The network can no longer be detected? All connected devices disconnect, but can still detect the network? Etc.?

    The network can be detected but cant be connected too it. Sometimes the devices that are connected stay connected but others that try to connect, cant.

    If you have a Windows computer please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector when the problem occurs.

    Do you have any other 2.4 GHz devices--cordless phone, baby monitor, etc.? Or something like a microwave close to the router?

    There is nothing except a computer near the router. I will post a screenshot when the problem next occurs.
