How To Fix Intermittent Wireless Connection Using Your Wireless Router

Almost everyone who uses a wireless router at home experience wireless disconnection once in a while. That’s because there’s Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) or wireless interference within the network.

Since most wireless routers have no rfi shielding that’s used as a protection to prevent EMI or RFI, the electromagnetic waves generated by other electronic devices you have may negatively affect the performance of your router. There are no solution to that, but you can reduce them by following these steps:

  • If you have a cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment that’s running on 2.4Ghz, try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computer.
  • Try also chnaging the wireless settings of the router.
  • Make sure you have the latest firmware installed on your router.
  • Try to move the router to different locations to find a better link.
  • The best place to put the router is as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.

If nothing works, consider getting a new router. Hope this helps!
