    Wireless network intermittent packet loss

    I'm having an issue with my wifi and I thought I would turn to "the professionals". I have been experiencing intermittent packet loss and high response times. When plugged to my router via ethernet things are fine. I just upgraded the firmware on my router and that didn't help. I am starting to think that my 802.11n integrated wifi is failing... thoughts?

    Re: Wireless network intermittent packet loss

    I had a similar problem after three years. I had to go out and buy a new, better model last month. It kept dropping laptops off line. The new N wifi is much better And faster.

    I'm running a Linksys WRT160Nv3 and using a Lenovo Ideapad that's less than two months old...

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    The fact that this thread got posted twice only adds to the magic.

    Issue resolved, no help from any of you. Go back to updating your facebook from your mom's house.

    I updated the wireless driver on my laptop, fixed most issues. Still getting some ping timed out, just not as many. I may replace Linksys firmware with DD-WRT.

    Re: Wireless network intermittent packet loss

    Despite the thread title, I read the word "wifi" as "wife". Made the first two sentences somewhat startling and humorous. I have an eye appt scheduled in early January.
