Occasionally my Linksys router will drop all Wi-Fi connections if there are multiple wi-fi connections on the router. Sometimes the whole router will even crash when there are multiple wi-fi connections going to the same router.

For example, if i have my laptop using the wi-fi connection from my router, and my friend starts up his laptop to connect to the router via wi-fi, both our wi-fi connections will drop, and occasionally the whole router crashes.

I was wondering if this is a known issue and/or if there are any router settings I should take a look at. I had originally thought i just had a bad router, but after talking to one of my friends, he is having the same issue.

I can provide specific router info if need be (I am away from Home and do not have the the info right now).

Look for newer firmware on Linksys website and see if it holds anything newer. This is your best guess from giving us 0 information about your Linksys model.

Updating the firmware fixed the issue. – contactmatt Jan 31 '11 at 21:04
