      SR102 WiFi On/Off

      Hi All,

      This may be a simple question! I notice in the 'Show Stats' page of the router, my WLAN is connected for a lot less time than both WAN & LAN. Currently 48 Hours up time compared with 2000 for the LAN itself. Is this a power saving function or an issue with the router?

      Thanks!

      It could be that the WiFi channel has changed.

      Could I ask you to use inSSIDer or WiFi Manager to identify the channel being used and to monitor the situation?

      I've had the channel manual set to 13 for some time now, only because when using inSSIDer I find it doesn't always select the best channel to cover the various rooms, so have manually set it

      I've never noticed any disconnections when I'm using devices on WiFi, I'll try and keep an eye on how often it seems to turn off and work check if there's a pattern at all

      Re: SR102 WiFi On/Off

      Bringing this thread up again as I've noticed WiFi disconnections more recently, by disconnections I don't mean devices cannot connect, however in the stats page for example, WLAN will show as 'Up' for a few minutes, then reset to 0 again, some days it'll be up for about 48+ hours, others much less. Also looking at the log below, is this normal behavior?
