And this is with ALL wired devices connected?

Ok, seems like we have narrowed down some here. Wired router only seems to be working for you.

I would now turn on the WiFi radio and use InSSIDer application to see who's around you and find a clear and open channel if one is available. You said before that there are a few near by and channel 11 was open at the time? Try setting the router to 11 if it's still open and set mode to Mixed G and N. I presume you have devices that use G and N modes?

Yes, this is just for wired devices...wireless has been turned off.

I didn't want you to have to just sit and wait.....
I have to drive over to to the Walker Heart Institute in Fayetteville this morning
to pick up a friend and bring him home. I will post back once I return.

The only devices I have that are wireless are the Roku Player and my old XP box which is both wireless and ethernet. I will have to check and see what type it is.

Should be back in about 6hrs or so

Ok 5pm CST  back home.

Turned on the wireless radio, set it to  mixed N & G, lets see what happens. I have not turned on the Wi Fi Protected status yet.

Just did a doublecheck, there are apparently more wireless units in my neighborhood than I thought..and 11 looks busy so I decided to make a change to channel 5 which no other unit is apparently on. My inSSIDer shows me at 5+9, whatever that means. Also auto channel scan is off.

Currently have my XP box connected as of 5pm.

Thanks

PS Just turned on the Roku player, it works good.

6:39pm Dlink dropped all connections.
Had to unplug and restart the router to get back wired and wireless connections.
Uptime: 1 1/2 hrs.

Any suggestions?

I'm wondering if your area is WiFi congested on 2.4Ghz. Won't really know this unless you can take the 615 to a different location, say a friend or families place and connect it there. I don't think upgrading would even help. We've kind of narrowed down that with out the WiFi running, the wired router is stable. Turning on WIFI, the router becomes unstable and drops connections probably use to many WiFi in the area and using up channels and being near or on the same channel.

You could turn down the output power under Advanced/Adv Wireless from high to low and see if that helps some.

I would like to see if you could try this in a different location if possible.

The only other thing I can suggest is that you turn off the 2.4Ghz WiFi and get you a 5Ghz AP and a couple of 5Ghz WiFi adapters for those devices you can upgrade to 5Ghz.  ::)

Thanks for the respone, I will try and turn down the power on my next test.

I don't know of anyone around that would have the ability to insert this into their own network and use it. My friends are all on windstream dsl. Most don't have the knowledge or the desire to test things out.

I have been watching the various wireless networks and yes, there are a lot of them around. most have very low signal strength to me. My XP box is about 1ft away from the router, and my Roku player is about 15ft with no obstructions or walls.

I have used the inSSIDer and watched all the signals and none seem to disappear, the only one that does that is mine, when the router drops all connections. None of the other networks are on channel 5. Most are on 1, 6 or 11.

You mentioned in a previous post about a possible upgrade to the firmware?

Update:
I have noticed that over the past few hours that the wireless connection to my xp box has been dropped but not the wired connections.

Yes you could try upgrading FW. Again, upgrading FW will probably not solve anything since you seem to have a lot of other WiFi routers near by, upgrading FW will not solve the problem of other WiFi being and using up the channels. I do believe that the best solution for you would be to switch to 5Ghz. Being in an area with other WiFi routers and using up the channels is becoming more problematic in areas with more population as everyone is getting into buying WiFi routers.

I have read about the open source WW-DRT software. Many folks have reported that similar problems have disappeared after upgrading/switching to the open source software, do you have any opinions, either officially or unofficially?

So far just the one instance of the dropped connection so far.
The WinXP box with both ethernet and wireless seems to get dc'd when using the
wireless ( ethernet is unplugged). It seems to only last 5-10 min before dropping.
The wired connections have not dropped.

I have yet to try turning down the power on the radio. Also I was wondering about
location. I have the router sitting on top of the chat server and only about 1ft away from the XP box with the wireless card in it. I would not think that it would make much of a difference, but I do have a bit of latitude on where I place the Dlink.

I do find it strange that mine seems to be the only signal on the inSSIDer that seems to disappear.

Thanks so much for trying to help me, I really appreciate the excellent support even though I have not solved my problem.

Just another update.

I believe the WinXP disconnects are machine specific since it drops the wireless to it but not to the Roku player.

So far no more wired disconnects, and I have been playing with the Ralink turbo wireless card configuration in XP to see if I can solve that problem.

I have (as of 7:30am) moved the Dlink router off of the chat server box. Will keep you posted.

Thanks

DLink doesn't officially support WRT FW on any of there routers. I some cases it has resolved some issues, mainly people wanting other options like bridging and such. WRT might help resolve some of this however again, keep in mind that you have other WiFi routers near by and regardless of what FW is loaded, would probably not help. Also be aware that WRT is a bit more complex to use and has a lot more advanced features than you normally would see on these routers. I loaded it on a NG router I had a few years back. It is nice however even for me, I thought it was a bit too complex.

Also we are dealing with something called "Good Neighbor Polilcy" set down in stone by the WiFi organization for all Mfr to have there routers play nice near other routers. This is the main reason why your router isn't working well on WiFi. Since others are near by and using up channels, it's programmed to stop when this kind of interference is encountered so that it wont interfere with others. Now your nieghbors routers, should have this same policy, however some older routers did not thus they can be just like big bullies on the block, broadcasting a signal that any other router just can't deal with. And since we don't know what your neighbor routers are, made and model, kind of hard to tell.

So far just the one instance of the dropped connection so far.

DLink recommends placing of WiFi routers 3-6 feet away from other electronic equipment.

I do find it strange that mine seems to be the only signal on the inSSIDer that seems to disappear.

Thanks so much for trying to help me, I really appreciate the excellent support even though I have not solved my problem.

You could attemp to at least update to the most current version on DLink web site and do some more testing. I think we figured out that there is a more resent one available for your Rev. If you do decide to, please follow this: FW Update Process

You might try a different WiFi adapter in that XP PC to see if it helps. Glad that your making progress.

I prefer NOT to have to flash the router.
I will wait and see how the new location of the Dlink affects performance.
Will keep you posted.

Again, many thanks
