Have any cordless phones using the 5 GHZ frequency range? If you can try to fall back to either a pure "G" or "N" standard that might clear up some of the problem you are seeing.

its an dual band router on 5ghz i'm trying to run pure N, that only works for about 50 feet away from the router.

on 2.4ghz i'm running mixed, that works in few places down stairs, i would say about 10% of down stairs got coverage.

will play with it a bit more, but probably will go get it replaced for D-link DGL-4500

something i posted at dlsreports

Quote:
My DGL-4300 "died" two days ago. It still turns on, get power but it seems to be in some sort of suspense mode/diag mode.

With just power pluged in, WAN Led is on all the time and LAN1-4 every 3-5 seconds light up for about 2 seconds and go off.

I tried resetting it, in every way possible, nothing have helped. According to the laptop and one computer downstairs, it doesn't send any Wi-fi signal. I had this router for 6 years, it was on for 6 years. It never failed in that time, never required a reboot.

Is there anyway to brink it back to life?

Also yesterday I bought Linksys WRT600n, for 180 dollar router this Linksys is a Piece of crap. Signal strenght is set to max. I barelly get connection downstairs, connection works in about 10% of downstairs.

I will probably go to store today and replace it for DGL-4500.
anyone know how to bring a router back to life?

I've been a fan of D-link for some time now. They have the best interface and I hardly ever have issues with their routers. I just wish they would allow me to keep the OLD display on all the time on their 4500.
