I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I have an 7 or 8 year old Linksys WRT310n in conjunction with my Time Warner Cable Arris cable modem. My wifi signal to my new Samsung smart TV keeps losing its communication with the router, and wont reconnect until I unplug and reset my tv. Also, the router has lost it's SSID and reverted back to factory settings three or four times. I tested my bandwidth, and plugged into the router with a CAT 5 network cable I get 16 mbps on my ASUS laptop, but only get 7 mbps over wireless. My Dell Inspiron pulls 16 mbps whether on cable OR wireless.
Is it time to get a new router? Is my ASUS laptop wireless card a POS? What about my Samsung TV losing its signal? I am a network novice so any help would be appreciated!
