Do any of you have problems with your wireless connection?

Asked by philosopher (9152points) April 16th, 2010

Verzion is constantly saying how they are the best. I do not agree.
Two days in a row I had to hook up my laptop to the router to restore my connection.
Does anyone know why?
I do not enjoy wasting my time on this.

I feel your pain. My laptop will only work in the room where the router is, when before it would work anywhere inside or outside the house. I miss being able to relax without a desk and it would be nice to be able to do that again.

I think it could be the age of the devices maybe? Unless they were all bought around the same time.

Another reason for wired connections; that’s all I use at home for both computers. I turn on the wireless when I have company who brings their laptops.

Some routers don’t play so well with certain operating systems, and if they do happen to promote a stable connection there is always some sort of jiggling that you have to do with the network before you can get it in working condition.

My cordless phone and my router were on the same channel (11). Every time I was online and received a call while using my pc near the base unit I would be disconnected.
You can’t imagine how long it took for me to figure that out. Check yours.
