    Default Wifi? Router Issue on Note2

    I have a Linksys WRT330N Exreme Gigabite Wireless N Router- Its probably 5-6 years old.

    My GN2 Browser will "Lock Up" periodically the bar will move slightly in the window. ill get a "White Page" and thats the end of that. Im also getting No Connection to Server Warnings periodically as well. I am suspicious of the Router because if I turn wifi off and try anything its like popping a window shade. I also now have LTE here in Columbus Ohio. If Im on You Tube I get alot of Buffering as well, something that never happened before. Again if I turn Wifi Off, the issue is not there.

    (A): If the Wifi Router was "Going Bad" would it cause intermittent issue like that to occur?

    (B): Is anyone else having any type of wifi lag or "Lock-up Issue"

    (C): Can anyone make a recomendation for a Replacement Wifi Route, Asus? Netgear, Cradlepoint? Im Looking for a Wifi Router that will compliment the Galaxy Note 2 and have lots of range/distance.

    Additional: Sometimes if I reset the power to the Router or I flush the Internet Cache and restart the phone, perfoormance returns to normal for a short time-span, and then Im bac to the Lag-Lock-up issue.I am using the stock browser that came with the GN2

    Thank you in advance

    No problems here with routers...
    Have you had any trouble with laptops or any other devices?

    If you don't the only thing I can suggest is to check the att smart wifi app if you are using it and entering the wifi password in that app... I ran into that problem myself when it kept disconnecting me but after that I've had no problems... Let us know

    ItsARaid, I have a NetGear N900 duel band router and have no problems, disconnects or otherwise with my GN2. It works like a charm. Maybe get a new router. 5-6 years in technology is OLD! You're due a router upgrade anyways.

    I've always had good luck with Netgear. Never given me any problems.

    It's good in theory, but the implementation leaves much to be desired.

    Hey I have to change my router out about every year and half. It just depends on the quality of the router. If you do alot of downloading, more than your typical user ie torrents, then yes they can go bad fairly quickly. If you need to reboot the modem often then thst can be a sign of a failing router...or a crappy provider. Such as att like I have. Which btw my 4g is faster than my home wifi. We are unable to get faster than 3mbps .
