How come my Belkin range extender keeps losing connection every 20 minutes?

by on May 1, 2013

Q: I recently moved into a new studio at a friends house, it is a remodel of his detached garage. I am connecting to his wifi for my internet service. I am only about 60ft away from the router but was getting a weak signal at times and would sometimes lose the signal. I decided to buy a Belkin f9k1106 range extender. Setup was easy and had great signal and speeds. Only problem i have run into is every 20 minutes it loses connection for 5 secs or so and gets a yellow triangle over the status logo and says limited connection. It automatically reconnects and I go on, but the problem is when im gaming or watching a movie online, it shuts down some programs that are open and i have to reopen them and obviously if i do that while gaming, my game ends or i have to restart the movie. I have been asking everywhere for a solution but no one seems to know so I thought I would give this a shot. Another interesting thing is I have tested the wifi when sitting outside and have yet to receive a limited connection interruption when sitting out there. Its a very odd situation but hoping someone here may be able to help.

    Since this was a new/recent purchase you should really talk to Belkin. Also, check for any firmware updates for your device on Belkin’s website.
