Hey there i would need some assistance with this problem that has recently occured... I run on a wireless internet system which is connected to the computer downstairs... I use a D-Link wireless USB receiver... All was working fine a while ago, but most recently i get disconnected from the internet and it says unable to connect to wireless network, and i click to check if there is any wireless network in range and it finds absolutely none.... Now i fixed it temporarly by just reinstalling the drivers and rebooting 100's of times before it picks back up the signal. One might say its just my internet going down or whatever.. but my father's computer stays up steady not loosing a single. Anyways i would love some ideas or hints on how to fix this. Thanks in advance

Sounds like interference....have you tried repositioning your USB adapter...does it come with a dock that you can move around?

Well, if it happens only to you, it might mean that the problem is on your wireless device.
My first guess would be that there is some kind of structural (logical) problem with your network. I mean, it could be that because you are in the second floor, you have a concrete floor with a electrical system and pipes going around. All that interferes with the signal.
Then again, if there are too many devices conected, the signal looses power (I have noticed this to happen oftenly, but physically it shouldn't, as far as i know).
If that doesn't solve your problem:
Maybe you could try checking if the usb device is working properly or nor (i mean, if it is new, go to the store and change it, lol). If it keeps happening, it could be that some of your devices have compatibility problems, or that your OS doesn´t support that device, etc.
Unfortunately, I can't give you more advice than this

PS: it would be better if you put more details of your environment, like comp. specs, computers conected to the network, what kind of reciever (model), what modem, etc..

Well its currently working right now, but im sure once i reboot or in a couple of days the same thing will happen.. :thumbsup:.... Yes im on the 2nd level of the house through a pretty thick floor, but im right above the router. I got the D-Link WUA-1340 USB adapter, theres 3 computers connected to the network using wireless technologies. I got a D-link router and a Speedstream modem...... Dont know what else to say, i guess it may just be a screwed up wireless usb device otherwise i've got no clue

In general, the weakest signal from a wireless device is in the direction that the antenna is pointing to. The antenna's should (ideally) be parallel to each other for best reception (this doesn't take into account any interference tho').

Any changes with anything electrical in the house? Could be interference.
