WRT54G CONSTANT DCs!
*posted on whirlpool too, hoping for millions of responses, lol*
As stated in the title, my router keeps cutting out for like 10 seconds and then BAM! It is back on and pretending nothing ever happened. This wouldn't be much of an issue, but I'm playing online games and using VoIP programs, so it disconnects me from those and takes around 3 or 4 mins to get back into everything.
I heard it getting overheated was a problem, so I took it out of the hub, and set it up in my room. Heat is definitely not the problem. It just disconnected again 30 minutes ago, so I had to cancel out of my game and come make a post here, haha.
It isn't just the internet, it is the entire network. Like, I was steaming music from my computer to my xbox, and it crashed for 10 secs, stopping music and again, taking a min or two to reconnect each other.
This means it aint my ISP i presume, due to the home network dying too.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
My side question, is... I have this router that isn't wireless, but worked 100% before I moved house and got this new wireless one. Now I connect to the network through cable, it is my dad / sister that uses wireless. Wondering, can I connect the old router in to my computer and the wall, and then stick the new router into my old one for the wireless only?
So basically, if the new router dies for 10 secs, I won't get disconnected, only the wireless down for a bit.
oh, are there any tests that can be run to see which part is going wrong with the router, cause I just thought of something horrible. my house is completely networked, big hub downstairs, so my router is actually connected to the wall through a cat5 cable that is just going into a switch down the bottom.
i'm really hoping that it isn't something wrong with my hub, or i'll kill myself... well not really, but still, i think i might kill someone.
