Default Re: Router Question!

Microwave ovens, 2.4ghz cordless phones, and a host of other microwave devices will offer up interferance. When I run my microwave, my connection goes in the toliet.
A bandaid that you could use is a universal repeater. TP-Link makes one you can get for under 50 dollars > Newegg.com - TP-LINK TL-WA5110G IEEE 802.11b/g High Power up to 23dbm 54Mbps Wireless G Access Point
The repeater function is enabled in the setup programing.

The microwave is never on when this happens.

I've cornered the problem to something in my room. I was out doing homework in the kitchen and had no problems yesterday. Here are the other electronics in my room.

Turtle Beach Wireless Headset
HP Printer
Wireless Mouse

what frequency does the wireless headset or mouse work on?

is the printer a printer that can act as a wireless hotspot to allow you to print wirelessly?

It sounds like a wireless signal range/availability/interference problem to me too - in which case any new router will probably suffer a similar fate.

If I were you I'd take $50 from your budget and by a pair of ethernet powerline adapters and then have a wired connection in your room. This will not only improve your connection stability but also give you much faster data transfers on your internal LAN.
