Question

make me #2. Started out with the "wtf? corrupted firmware on an out of the box device!?" haha, as many have. this forum got me through that, so now i'm running the stock 3.0.0.4.260. seemed to work fine until i turned off my 5Ghz antennae. Nothing I own has an 802.11n NIC in it, so i figured i didn't need both on. Going to try turning it back on to see how it goes tonight - but thought i'd let you know he's not the only one.

It's odd though because multiple issues began once I did this:
1 - HP laptop would authenticate/connect to the network but wouldn't be served a DHCP address (it would use APIPA), but if i give it an IP address of my own that i know is correct for the network - it works.

2 - the android phones connected to the router will lose connection to the internet but look like they're well connected to wifi...up arrows will show up and blink but no down arrows and no connection to the net via wifi. UNTIL I power cycle the wifi on my phone...then it's random how long it will last...typically won't die on me while using it, only after idle time.

all wired connections...only one...work perfectly fine 24/7.

Default Channel Bandwidth

Next time you guys run into this issue try turning the 2.4GHz bandwidth to 20MHz only. This was happening with my Windows phone almost all the time. It would connect sometimes, and not connect as soon as two minutes later!

Goto:
Advanced Settings - Wireless
Frequency (2.4)
Look for channel bandwidth and set it to 20MHz.

I haven't had an issue since. Both my tablet & desktops run off the 5GHz, so the bandwidth on the 2.4 band really didn't matter to me.
