We see that a lot when...
One of the clients is using TORRENT software or the security is WEP or less.
Hope this helps you sort it out.
I checked my router page... I am the only one on the router and I am not running torrents. I do have wep security but if nobody in on my network that shouldn't be an issue
It's a repeating issue.
You can search the Cnet Networking forum for the repeat advice to move to WPA2 if possible.
Checking the router page is not reliable. I demo'd that just last month to a skeptic. They didn't know I was on their network.
The only other advice is to call ATT for a new modem and hope they do that and test the line. But you do have something you can do first.
And about torrents. Hamachi counts too.
I just changed over to WPA and WPA2 (the dual mode)
The list on the router is base on the MAC address.
And since I can change mine to be that address then the owner never knows. It creates no end of trouble for them.
Changing to WPA/WPA2 ends that nonsense and worth a try.
-> One last thing. Be sure the modem/router is no buried. Be sure it's upright and cool.
I mean "not buried."
Ouch. New keyboard.
I meant "based on the MAC address."
Seems good for now
I haven't had it disconnecting every 2-4 minutes lately so we will see. I hope that ends everything.
I'd like to hear wood or plastic. Metal interferes with RF things.
WEP's security is so lax that many wish it was no longer offered. Be sure not to make other changes for now and see how it plays out.
If it was not that it would be the floor which isn't much better. But I live out in the country with only 3 houses within my signal range so security was obviously not a big concern for me. I didn't think wep would cause any problems until now.
Although changing to wpa slowed down the amount of times, it does seem to still disconnect
OK, last things.
NO 2.4GHz cordless phones or other 2.4GHz devices allowed! I've found wireless cameras at the frequency and issues with that.
If there is no house within 2000 feet try no security for a test run. If it fails it's time to call in for a line test and then swap the modem.
Im having the same prob. My'n is cutting off, the red light blinks.
It takes 2 days to download a 8gb file and i hae a 3gig service.
The AT&T people say its a in home wire prob. but i know it's not.
The AT&T speed test says im geting a 5.67 mbps or so down load speed, but every other site says 3.65 or so. Ive ran them one after 1 min appart.
AT&T is just a rip off.
Good luck to themthat uses AT&T
So you've done all the above?
No reason to repeat all that?
First issue -you have to determine if its a hardware...
1. Why is my 2wire Modem Constantly reconnecting.....
2. i am having the same problem....
I was having the same problem
Under your wireless settings in home network change only to one wireless mode either b or g and not both. I know how frustrated you must feel as I was having the same problem. ATT was never able to solve my problem they kept sending out techs and more techs over to my house to no avail. Hope this helps.
