PostPosted: Mon Dec 05, 2005 1:55 pm    Post subject: WRTP54G Wireless drops? Reply with quote Back to top

After the plethora of minor issues with previous firmware versions, I am now very happy with my WRTP54G and the voice services. I don't have any known issues with the router capabilities either.

Now and for the last several weeks, I have noticed that my wireless connection is just disappearing every 2 - 12 hours for about 2-3 minutes. It is like the router is restarting but my hardwired machines are unaffected and I am able to hold a voice conversation uninterrupted when this happens.

I have cold power cycled the router several times and it doesn't appear to make much difference.

Anyone else having these issues or have suggestions?

I don't know why, but my D-Link wireless router has bouts of dropping the wireless connection, though everything else works fine! I don't know if it is my laptop acting up, or the router, but it will happen about once a week for a few hours, and dissapear. I don't use any 2.4GHz devices and the microwave isnt being used when it typically happens...

We have recently switched to 5.8GHz phones and the microwave is quite a distance from the router. I have about five machines in my house that use the wireless and they all die off at the same time so I know it isn't related to one particular computer. The laptop that I use all of the time is just 7 feet away from the router and is not usually bothered by anything else going on in the house.

I'm using WPA-PSK/TKIP and yes, all of my machines have the Microsoft XP Wireless rollup patch so that isn't the issue.

Sadly, it looks like we are in the same situation...

Anyone else know something to help us out?

Well, two things:

The WPA will have to do a renegotiate if there is any kind of change to the router. Sometimes it will get a weird IP address and take a few minutes to get back its DHCP address.

That said, a lot of things can cause a change state to the router. Daily lease expirations of WAN IPs, if you set expirations for your LAN IPs, etc. can all impact the WPA-TKIP status. Since it is happening on all devices, something is happening at the router level to cause a "hiccup", whether intended or not... that is causing a drop of the WiFi connection.

I would pull up a status on a wireless nic to see if your IP changes when it happens. If your IP goes into something funky like a 192 localhost type address, you have an issue with your WPA losing sync with the router.

I would also give one of your wireless machines a static IP to see if that rules out the problem. Otherwise check the router config advanced specs and make sure you arent inducing unnecessary latency in a config that would cause a drop.

Thanks for the ideas.

I am losing a layer 1 connection when the wireless drops so it isn't the DHCP hiccuping. I checked the leases for the clients and it is still set to 8 days so I doubt this is causing the problem. I also confirmed that I am not getting an AIPA address.

My BellSouth DSL lease is handled by the Westell router so the "outside" of the WRTP54G is static.
