I recently bought a Linksys BEFW11S4 router for wireless use with one remote laptop. When I fire up the laptop, it sees the wireless network and can connect, no problem. Things work fine for about 45 minutes, at which point the laptop is disconnected. Subsequently, the laptop will report that it is connected, then disconnect in about 3 seconds, re-connect 3 seconds later, and repeat.The 45 minute time point is not exact, but it is roughly consistent each time I use the laptop.I am using WPA/TKIP encryption with MAC filtering. If anybody knows how to fix this issue, then please help me!!
The issue of intermittent disconnect could occur due to a number of reasons. I will discuss different troubleshooting techniques to resolve this issue. Kindly follow the given techniques carefully.
So press the "Reset" button at the back of your router device for 20-30 seconds and wait for few minutes before powering it on. This will ensure that any problems occurring due to a faulty setting will be resolved. Make sure not to overdo this step as resetting your Linksys Router for more than 5-8 times can cause permanent damages
Hopefully, the above-given troubleshooting techniques helped you in getting to a solution. In case you have any kind of query or issue with these techniques, kindly revert back with your issue and I will be glad to help.
