I have Arris TG2472 gateway with both of the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz SSID's hidden. One laptop, from work, an HP EliteBook 1030 G4 Windows 1909 will randomly disconnect from 5 GHz WiFi and it takes down a...
I don't know why your 5 GHz network keeps dropping. It could be your workstation but it'd have to be doing something hogging lots of bandwidth.
I can only recommend a wired connection and since you don't have an Ethernet NIC, you could probably get a USB NIC...technically a USB to Ethernet Adapter...look for gigabit speed although you probably won't get gigabit via USB.
Oh I see, and do have an old repeater for the garage.
Well, it happened again need a way to pinpoint that. I think is this laptop, it's connected to remote desktop and corporate VPN, not sure if still drops when only on WiFi though.
I do have one USB NIC and might get a few more, but the Arris TG2472 is a little far from the laptop will need a long cable. I will have to look and see if it supports gigabit speed, but hope that is not needed.
I was not able to try ethernet, but it drops again without being connected to corporate VPN or remote desktop. After about two hours, the WiFi cuts out ALL devices with it. Still have not figured out how or why all other devices on the 5 GHz go out too.
If this ends up being a bandwidth issue, is any bandwidth monitor app that is free and portable? Since I cannot install any program on this laptop. Let's say it works with ethernet, then what is the problem with WiFI?
