Re: WRT32X Dropping Wifi?

I have spoken with multiple Linksys tech support reps and all of them have said it is a known issue with the router. Something to do with the firmware and they are "working on it." I'm considering returning mine while i still have a chance. I do not know how long it's going to take them to figure  out the giant mistake they've caused in the most recent firmware update.

Re: WRT32X Dropping Wifi?

same exact issue here, except i just bought the router and it started doing this the very next day. paying 300$ for a product i cant even use since the wifi drops within 30 minutes of a reboot is beyond frustrating.

Re: WRT32X Dropping Wifi?

Just got this router and have not hooked it up yet. Chadster, do you have a copy of the prior firmware (not the latest causing issues) for this router that I can install? Thanks for your help.

Re: WRT32X Dropping Wifi?

Have you tried settings manual channels and single modes on the 32x router? 

 

Any other wifi neighbors near by? If so, how many?

Re: WRT32X Dropping Wifi?

Sorry when I got my WRT32X Linksys engineering already pulled the firmare that was available.

 

Can someone create a log file on a external usb drive by running the below command and then posting it after these issues occur:

 

nohup logread -f > /mnt/mounted-usb-drive/syslog.txt &

I have! and unfortunately the same issue. I seperated the 2.4 and the 5ghz band and its happening on both. maybe around 4-6 other wifi networks i can see from where my router is located so there shouldnt be much interference. same issue is happening to both bands.

Re: WRT32X Dropping Wifi?

Hello
I want to try to help.
I have just the same problem. I'm not very good at computers but I'd love to give it a try.
If you explain it a little more precisely.

Have bought mine just now and still have the opportunity to send it back and consider it strongly.
