What happens when you are at 20 feet line of sight to the router?
Remember you told nothing about distance or the rather famous "my router is in the basement."
Hello C|net, do I have a doosie for you folks! I am currently experiencing Wi-Fi Woes. The problem I'm having is that the internet connection drops out on the WiFi, at first when streaming now whenever you even try to load a webpage. However, this only happens on the three laptop's in the house. The smart phones and the Xbox one have no issues! I noticed it when streaming, you'd load a minute, then bam you get buffering. After 15 seconds or so, it either says server not found or it just resets your stream! Now for clarification, only the internet leaves, you stay connected to the router's signal the whole time. Hardwire the laptops and it works like a charm, take it to another houses WiFi, no problems. Contacted my isp, they said router, bought a new router (D-Link Dil-859) still having the issue! Bypass the router straight to modem, no issues. Here's what I have tried thus far.
1. Updated firmware on router
2. Changed the channels from 1-11
3.changed it to 802.1 n band only
4.changed bandwidth to 20MHz
5. Assigned 220.127.116.11 as primary DNS and 18.104.22.168 as secondary dns
6. Cried in fetal position for a solid half hour
7. Checked priority queues (D-Links qOs system)
8. Contacted D-Link support and redid all those things.
So now I'm in limbo waiting on a "senior service technician" to contact me sometime in the next week? If anybody has any ideas, much appreciated!
Laptop's are all different makes on different operating systems with all their updates.
