I have a desk top computer which is normally hard wired to my wireless D-Link router (DI-524) and we also use laptops through out the house that recieve a wireless signal from the D-Link. Lately it seems that the wireless signal has been getting weaker and weaker and then last night it would not connect at all to the wireless. We contacted the folks who we get our internet serives fron (Uniserve)who had us hook up the desk top directly to the modem they supplied and we are getting internet to the desk top through the hardwire. So it would appear that their service and modem are working. This leaves me to wonder if the router could be faulty? I tried to phone the service line for D-Link but they only work 9-5 Mon-Fri. Since it is after 5 on Friday I will not be able to talk to them until Monday if they even talk to me as I think we bought the router 3 - 4 years ago.
My question is do routers wear out? Should I go buy a new router?
Any help would be most appreciated.
