Was fine until yesterday then started acting up in similar ways to the last 3 units. Some of my connected computers just disconnect and will NOT maintain a connection unless I reboot the router. Add to that the the admin web-gui is not accessible unless I reboot.

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ Agreed, do a site survey to rule out problems with your wi-fi. A good tool to start is "Wi-Fi Analyzer" on Android, will give you a readout on what wi-fi networks are using which frequency channels, and depending on what's giving you probably, may want to check out the wi-fi spectrum analyzer from MetaGeek, I've been wanting to get one of these to add to my arsenal for wi-fi site surveys, but they're just a little out of my price range, something I'd have to save up for.
