So smiles all round, but although browsing on my desktop connected via internet stays connected for weeks, wireless browsing on my netbook requires at least daily power cycling of my router which is a Netgear DGN1000 following disconnects.
Can anyone recommend a reasonable cost modem router with a good wireless coverage that would suit my medium to long line. My location is high on the side of the Lower Pennines and the S/N drops by about 5 dB at night.
Hi, it seems many users of the Netgear DGN1000 router do have problems with wireless stability.
Have you tried using only 802.11g
with the channels 1, 5, 9, 13
802.11g hardware is fully backwards compatible with 802.11b hardware. Details of making b and g work well together occupied much of the lingering technical process. In an 802.11g network, however, the presence of a legacy 802.11b participant will significantly reduce the speed of the overall 802.11g network.
From experience I can recommend the 2Wire 2700HGV wireless router.
