Re: Netgear router keeps dropping out.

Haaa, so it isn't an isolated problem as i was told yesterday by a tech on virginmedia/remotechat. I am channel hopping on my modem up to 25 times a day! The wireless signal in the bedroom only feet up the hall from the modem alternates between 1 and 4 bars at all times of the day. It really is as much use as a chocolate teapot. I actually had to threaten to contact the executives office... AGAIN... until he agreed to send me out a new router to try.

 

I'd be much better trying to connect the HTC phone, I phone and xbox to wifi using the chocolate hobnob i have in hand!!

Re: Netgear router keeps dropping out.

Having the same problem here aswell, I'm on the Netgear router that was supplied by Virgin, every so often it will just disconnect wirless but stay connected via cable only started about the same time as a few have said on here in December and its becoming increasingly annoying as it never used to do it before hand and also with the previous router I had

 

Any ideas?

Hi floppitydoppity

 

Can you try logging into the hub and changing the wireless channnel, it sounds like you have some wireless interference.

Re: Netgear router keeps dropping out.

How do I log into the hub and what shall I set it to? I did a search to see what other channels neighbours are using and we are the only ones using channel 1
