Loosing Wireless Signal

    I have a LAN with 3 wired (Cat 5 to NIC) PCs and one wireless PC, all
    feeding into the same router. The router is a D-Link DI-714P+, which is
    connected to a cable modem.

    Yesterday I was on the internet with the wireless PC, when suddenly I lost
    the signal. Of course this happens, but usually I'll get the signal back
    soon unless the modem is just simply not getting a signal (because of some
    problem with the ISP or whatever). In this case, however, my wired PCs could
    still access the internet. I waited about an hour, and still could not get
    online with my wireless PC. Then this morning I tried to access the internet
    again with the wireless PC , but still no signal. The wired PCs were
    accessing the internet just fine.

    So I powered down the cable modem and the router for a couple of minutes,
    powered them back up, and then the wireless PC was able to get back online
    again.

    Anybody have any ideas about what was going on? Thanks.

  2. Hi,

    You can check with D-Link to see if there is a firmware update for your
    router available. Their support web site is http://support.dlink.com/

    If you are up to date with your firmware or there is no firmware update
    available, I would suggest contacting D-Link technical support directly.

    Best Luck
