Hi,

Recently i brought a new D-Link Router and a D-Link Adapter to replace my old Linksys router.

I'm using a Wireless connection and the problem is that the new D-Link Adapter oftens disconnect and reconnect in a minute or so.

The internet speed of the connection oftens increase and decrease randomly between 18.0 Mps to 270.0 Mps.

It happens so frequently that sometimes when i was playing online games, it would lag or disconnect once every 15 - 30 minutes

This problem doesn't exist when i was using the Linksys Router and its connection speed is always a constant 54.0 Mps

The model of my D-Link router is DIR-855 Xtreme N Duo Media Router ( Here's a picture of it )

And the model of my D-Link Network Adapter is DWA-160 Xtreme N DualBand USB Adapter ( Here's is a picture of it )

Please help me out, thanks !

Hi,

Since you say it's the wireless that's disconnecting I can think of a few things:

1. The router is faulty. Check the manufactures web site for firmware updates. If the latest Firmware is installed Hard reset the router to return it to factory setting.

2. The adapter is faulty. Again Check the manufactures site for the latest Driver.

What you might also try:

a different wireless adapter and see if the problem persists. Your router is backwards compatible with other 802.11 standards (a, b, g).

Reset the Networking Protocols on the PC. Start>Run>cmd Type "netsh int ip reset reset.log" press enter. type "netsh winsock reset" press enter, restart the PC.
