Some of the routers include :2 Belkin wireless N
2 Linksys wrt54gx
and i think 1 other random linksys one
We have about 50 or 60 people total using the routers. Unfortunately, the walls are really thick cement (probably around 1ft), so i think the signals can only go through the windows, but that is not really the problem...
I'll explain it from what happens to me: I actually have a repeater (Buffalo air station G, with ddwrt) that is wired to my computer in my room since none of the signals came in strong enough in my room. This works great, i can even get speeds up to 12mbs download speed. However, especially recently, after resetting the routers, my internet just disconnects. I still and completely connected to the router itself and there are no problems there. It says the connection is great (it should be since i have an Ethernet cable plugged into it). However, there is no internet. Once i restart the thing, it works fine. As i said, i sometimes get great download speeds. Once i restart it, it goes back to normal.
I checked, and it is not just my computer. I had a friend come over and wirelessly connect to the thing too. Once my internet was down, his was down at the same time. It especially happens during things that take up a lot of bandwidth, like watching videos or playing games.
This is happening apparently with all of the routers. Once the power is unplugged and plugged back in it works just fine.
Un fortunately, i don't know exactly what the setup is before the wireless routers up here on my floor. I think that they are connected to another router downstairs, since i get assigned an ip address when i plug the cable straight into my pc. however, because of this, i even have some set up as access points (some not also). It still happens to people connected to any of them.
The setup i think is
my wireless routers
Another thing that might need to be noted is that i am using open dns on some of the routers. I don't think that this can be it though, since the probelm still occurs on the routers that i have not yet been able to get too change...
thanks in advance!
