Default Wnr2000 losing connection?

I recently had to purchase a new router as my old one died. I have done everything I can find on trouble shooting for the issue such as switching channels. My WNR2000 keeps disappearing on occasion. I have never had issues with the computer that is hard lined from the router. My Xbox or roku box randomly drops connection to the router. Doesn't seem that the router loses connection to the Internet, just that it quits transmitting to where it can't be found. It usually resolves itself within a minute or two. I did notice that it seems to stay connected if I am downloading something just fine, so I'm not sure what is going on?

I figure it may just be an interference issue (I have moved it a few feet away from the computer) and may just need to upgrade to the next step up since it claims to avoid interference. Any help would be extremely appreciated.

I don't think it has to do with interference (electromagnetic) from your computer, but rather radio interference from other wireless devices in your neighborhood area. Use a SSID scanner software, e.g. inSSIDer, to scan the wireless internet signals in your area. Choose a channel that's least used by others. Post back if that does not resolve your network connection problem.

There are no other wireless access points in my neighborhood as I live in a rural part of town. The next closest home is about 50 yards away at least. I also can't use the scanning software you recommended as my PC doesn't have a wireless card.

sounds like you have either defective router or any other emitting devices around the router may causing it.

also try plug the power supply directly to the wall and bypass ALL the stripes and test it
