My WiFi connection has suddenly become sporadic over the last week or two. I started using the WiFi antennae or extender that I'm currently using about six months months ago, and it has worked fine until now.
The WiFi source is in my landlord's unit about 30 yards from my antennae.
The connection will be fine for a while, even hours oftentimes, and then the connection will become "Limited", or all connection will be lost. The network goes to "Limited" then "Connecting" then "Connected" regularly. When a connection problem arises I unplug the antennae to reset it and then the connection will be fine for a while.
There are two WiFi networks with the same name that I am using, but one has "_xt" at the end. It appears as if my computer is going back and forth trying to connect with each one of these two networks when there's a connection problem. When I manually connect I believe I can only connect to one of the two.
A Belkin refresh program used to automatically start when there was an occasional connection problem, but it has not started automatically in the last two weeks or so since the connection problems have become really bad. Thanks for any replies.
My computer and extender:
4Gb RAM DDR3
W8.1 64 bit
500Gb HD 7200 rpm
