Title: Wireless periodically disconnects from internet but can still see hub
Post by: indygreg on May 19, 2015, 07:32:23 AM
once an hour or so i find that my wireless looses internet connectivity yet i can still get to the hub itself and from a wired connection i can get to the internet.  ran inSSIDer and my 5GHz is totally clear and i am running N only.  run a ping test against my router and against google and periodically the google pings just cant get through while my pings to the router continue with no problem.  when this happens i can go to a wired connection and all is fine.  wired always works. 

any ideas?

Does this happen on 2.4Ghz as well?

Router Placement
Forum User - "Well I feel really dumb. After moving the router away from other electronic devices my speeds are back to normal. Just a heads up for anyone experiencing slow speeds, you might want to move it away from other electronics and see if that helps."
3-6' feet minimum safe distance between devices.
Placement on main level floor and central in the building and WELL ventilated is preferred. Not in basements or closets as building materials, or near by electronics devices could interfere or hinder good signal propagation.
