Wireless Router keeps dropping signal
Linsys EA8500 keeps losing signal. Ive upgraded firmware but it continues. Ive read that the MTU may need to be adjusted and that a ping may be required to determine correct size. That seems beyond my ability. Anybody have similar issue? How did you fix it?

resetting the router fixes the problem temporarily but then within a few minutes it happens again.

I can't imagine a more user friendly, and just an overall great system. I've had mine for around eight months and I never have to mess with it. It just works and I never think about it.

re: Wireless Router keeps dropping signal
I don't know why, and this is pathetic to say, but they don't make routers like they used to. They're miniature computers now and they frick up a lot. 2 years ago I bought a $250 Nighthawk and just had to replace it like 3 months ago.
