|I have two computers, a Dell laptop that is connected via an ethernet wire to the router (which is connected to the cable modem) and Mac laptop which I can only use wirelessly (because Apple told me the port where the ethernet wire would go in is damaged and would cost $700 to fix).|
The Dell works perfectly fine. The Mac was working perfectly fine on the same Linksys router for about two years. The last few weeks, the signal keeps going in and out. Sometimes it will work perfectly, and other times it will be very slow and weak. I have turned the router off and on, reset it, etc. I called Cisco and they told me to go to 126.96.36.199 on the Dell and change the channel to either 1, 3, 6, 9 or 11. I have tried all of these channels and the same thing seems to happen.
Anyone have any other suggestions? I don't understand why sometimes it works perfectly and other times it's super duper slow (like right now). Thanks.
