Not sure what specifics you need to help with my problems, but I will list everything I could think would be related at the end. For a very long time now, whenever the computer that is wired to the router is in use (read actively using the internet), it's like the wireless signal immediately stops. Almost like the router will only allow either or to function, and not both simultaneously. Now, I could expect this if the wired connection is doing something bandwidth intensive, but it even occurs with simple tasks like loading a webpage and facebook games are being played. Also, the wired connection NEVER suffers. It is only the wireless connection that slows/stops altogether. I have tried a multitude of solutions and this is kind of my last resort for some assistance. Gathered from the other messages I have seen on here, some info that may assist:
-Distance from router to adapter is approx 35 feet horizontally and 10-15 feet vertically. Only very thin walls and zero metals between the two.
-SSID was changed along with a WPA2? key for a pass-phrase.
-Tested various channels and separated myself from other channels being used in the vicinity.
-All firmware is up to date
-Read about power saving functions on the AE1000, tried some fixes from those articles that didn't pan out
ISP - Comcast (they have offered zero solutions)
Router - Linksys WRT110
Network Adapter - Linksys AE1000
OS - Win 7 on both
I will give you the world if this is something easily fixed. If you need anything else from me, I will provide whatever is needed! Thanks all!
