Reasons Why Your Wi-Fi Connection Drop

Home or public wireless connection, your wireless networks tends to drop unexpectedly for no goof reason. The wirelss connection failure can be especially frustrating.

Failed wireless conection are common than you might think, and fortunately, the solutions are listed below.

With this checklist, you can determine why it’s happening and ways of preventing it.

01.Wi-Fi Radio Interference 

The radio signals from many users of electronic products around house or in the area of your device and the router can interfere with the Wi-Fi networks signals.

For example, cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, garage door openers, and microwave oven. All these electronic device can turn down a Wi-Fi network connection when powered on.

Solution

Move your network equipment or change some Wi-Fi radio settings to avoid this problem

02.Insufficient Wi-Fi Network Range and Power
Even without having an interference from other equipment, the Wi-Fi connection can sometimes drop on a device located near the edge of the network wireless signal range or even when the device is close to the router.
Solution
Wireless network links generally become more unstable with distance. Relocating your computer or other gear is simple but not always a good solution.

If not, consider antenna upgrade and other techniques ti improve wireless signal transmission and reception.

03.The Network Is Overloaded
Some hardware and home may be set up perfectly to accommodate a wireless connection signals and avoid interference, but if there are much device using the same network, the available bandwidth for each device will be limited.

In a situation when each device lacks eniugh bandwidth, videos immediately stop playing, websites won’t open, and the device might even disconnect and reconnect from the network, over and over, as it tries to hold on to enough bandwidth tends to keep using Wi-Fi.

Solution

Turn off the devices of the network. If your television is streaming movies, turn it off. if someone is playing any game on your network, have them take a break. if few people are browsing the net like facebook on their phones, ask them to disable their wireless connection to free some of the bandwidth.

When someone is downloading files on their computer or phones, see if they can use a program that supports the bandwidth control so that less bandwidth will be used for that device and more will be available for your wireless device.

04.Unknowingly Connecting to the Wrong Wi-Fi Network

When two or more neighboring location are running unsecured Wi-Fi netorks withthe same name (SSID), your device can possibly connect to the wrong network.

This can cause the interference and also some of the range problems listed above. More s, at this spot, your Wi-Fi tends to lose connection whenever the neighboring network is turned off, even when u preferred one remains functional.

Sometimes, it does happen, not only that but if the other network is suffering from bandwidth issues like listed above, then your device tends to experience those symptoms even when Wi-Fi remains.

Solution 

Proper security measures are expected to ensure that your PC and other device connect to the right network.

05.Firmware Upgrade or Network Driver Required

Every computer that is connected to a wireless network utilizes a small piece of software known as the device driver. Network routers contain related technology known as firmware.

These pieces of software may become corrupted or obsolete over time and tends to cause network drop and other wireless problems.

Solution

Upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest version to see if that fixes the network connection problems.

Also upgrade the device driver, if supported on your particular device. For example, if your windows computer continue disconnecting from Wi-Fi, you need to upgrade the network drivers.

06.Incompatible Software Packages Installed
Wi-Fi connection normally fail on a computer if it has incompatible software installed. It includes patches, services, and other software that modifies the networks capabilities of the operating system.
Solution
Each installation or upgrade of a software on the computer have to be recorded, and be prepared to uninstall any incompatible software re-install an corruped program.
