Periodic reboot required to connect Windows 7 to 5G
I have a Pace 5268AC router running software version 10.5.3.527171-att. It was installed in July. Since installation, I've had trouble connecting at 5G on my Windows 7 laptop.
In the meantime, my Android phone has always connected at 5G and maintains that connection indefinitely. Because of that, I've always thought the problem was with my computer, not the Pace. So, I've tried all the Windows tricks, removed and re-added connections, etc. I bought a new USB adapter, and, on initial installation, it worked will for awhile, then it wouldn't connect at 5G, either.
I finally decided to restart my router and return it to factory settings to see if that would help. That was painful, since that process required that I go back and re-enter my passwords, etc., but it worked. The laptop connected at 5G and maintained the ability to connect for several weeks. Yesterday, it refused to connect at 5G, so I rebooted it (without returning to factory settings) this morning. That did the trick. The laptop now connects at 5G. Rebooting is better than restarting, but is still a pain.
Has anyone else seen this problem? Any fixes short of periodically rebooting the Pace?
Thanks for any help.
