I have tried fixing the problem various ways but nothing seems to be working. The router is two floors down and sometimes I have trouble connecting, other times it's connected and works. There's no rhyme or reason for periods where it disconnects. I've done manual reconnection (NEVER WORKS) and Troubleshooting (hardly ever works). I've tried disabling and reenabling the wireless and restarting the computer. Nothing can seem to prevent these problems from happening. Sometimes the network won't even show up! I can't fathom how it's possible to SOMETIMES detect the network and SOMETIMES connect to it. I've thought of purchasing a repeating (quite pricey if you ask me) or perhaps using an antenna extension cable. Not sure either would be successful in alleviating my problem. Finally, and the most odd thing, is that when the router was in the basement, I actually got a better signal even though it was LOWER than before. Not sure if this was because it was connected directly to the phone box, but the router is back on the first floor and the problem persists daily. It's pissing me off, quite frankly. What can I do to prevent my computer, antenna, and/or router from sailing out the window to their almost certain demise?
