DIR-635 Problems. Loosing connection
« on: January 01, 2015, 05:05:46 AM »

Dear reader,

I keep loosing the wireless internet connection in different ways, and I suspect that the cause is the settings of my DIR-635. Sometimes the router shuts down the wireless signal, and sometimes I get the message: "Please wait ... The gateway is currently measuring your network connection. Accessing this web page might have an effect on the measurement. This page will refresh shortly.". Do you have any suggestions on how I should setup my router?

What HW version is your router? Hardware Version: B3
What FW version is currently loaded? Firmware Version: 2.34EU

What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL? Fiber optics 25/25
What ISP Modem do you have? Stand Alone or built in router? Stand Alone modem
What ISP Modem make and model do you have? Allied Telesis (unknown model)

What wireless modes are you using? Mixed B, G and N. Auto Channel Scan. Transmission Rate: Best (automatic). Channel Width 20 MHz.
What security mode are you using? WPA-Personal
What wireless devices do you have connected? 2-8 devices connected
Any cordless house phones? No
Any other WiFi routers in the area? Only weak signals

Link>Welcome!

  • What region are you located?
  • Are you wired or wireless connected to the router?
  • Has a Factory Reset been performed?
  • Was a Factory Reset performed before and after any firmware updates then set up from scratch?
>FW Update Process
  • Was the router working before any firmware updates?

Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion and Good Neighbour Policy
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Can be anything and not something that's already in use by any neighboring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • 2.4Ghz Routers only: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N?
  • Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
  • Try setting a manual Channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear. 13 for EU regions.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.
  • What wireless devices do you have connected?
  • Ensure any devices with WiFi adapter drivers are updated.
  • Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz cordless house phones or WiFi APs near by that maybe causing interferences?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area that maybe causing interferences? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many? Use v3, its free.
  • If you have any of these options, Try turning OFF or ON Short GI, WLAN Partition, Extra Wireless Protection and HT 20/40 Co-existence if you have it. Also testing with HT20/40Mhz Co-existence enabled will impact results as well. I prefer to use this option OFF. Recommended settings are default. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.

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.
