DSL connection dropout

By mike_polisky ·
I set up a wireless G router to use with a DSL modem. The router was set for PPoE and connected successfuly to SBC, the ISP. The wired connection to the router works fine. The wireless connection drops out anywhere from 1 minute to 15 minutes. Reconnecting is always successful only to dropout again soon. I tried the Linksys WRT54G and the D-Link DI-624 and I tried several channels. Anybody has any suggestions? I'm out of ideas. Thanks

It might be that the wireless connection is being bridged with another adapter. Remove the bridged connection. Got to your network connection and see if you see a bridge if you do disable and delete the bridge you will not need it.

If removing the bridge doesn't work. You should first check and see the strentgh of the signal and quality.

And also see if you lose connection due to using a cordless phone with the same frequency. ala like 2.4ghz.

A lot of things will mess with a wireless signal. Cell towers, microwave, cordless phones. Anything that generates an RF signal, or spur,in the frequency range of the wireless signal.

We use a frequency counter, and/or spectrum analyzer. Most of my technicians are Ham Radio Techs or have previous RF experience.

Good Luck
