Router Drops Connection
Router is a computer network device which helps in forwarding data packets along networks. Basically, wireless routers are wired routers equipped with built-in wireless access points so that you can enjoy both the wired and/or wireless network connections at the same time. The wireless broadband routers look much similar to a wired router, with the obvious exception of the antenna on top, and the lack of cable running from the PCs to the router when it is all set up. Creating a wireless network would cause more security concerns as opposed to wired networks, but wireless broadband routers come with extra levels of preinstalled security. You may at times face connection drop issues with your wireless router. You can check the following to understand the kind of issue that you face and then fix it.
- Router range problems
- Router hardware problems
- Possible ways to fix the problems
Router range problems
If you are trying to access the Internet outside the specified range by the wireless router manufacturer, you may have issues with your wireless connectivity. The wireless router that you have installed in your network supports a certain range for the access of the Internet wirelessly. You might face slow connectivity or your connection might drop frequently.
Router hardware problems
You might face connection drop issues with your router, if you have any issues with the wireless router hardware. If your router power supply is improper, you may face frequent disconnections. If your Ethernet cables connecting your modem and the routers malfunction, you may experience connection drop issues.
