This started a few weeks ago when my WIFI connection at home started taking longer and longer, then started to lose connection after a few minutes, reconnecting again.
Now, it connects maybe 10% of the time, rarely taking less than a few minutes of retries. Yet sometimes I connect in under 10 seconds. Then lose it in a few minutes. It also doesn't matter if I keep WIFI on or off between sessions.
At first, re-entering the PW was enough. Now that doesn't help. It will not connect for any number of excuses; cannot connect; association failed; etc.
The DLINK Dl-624 router setup has changed passwords. The only other changes I made recently was to go to WPA2 from default WPA or WEP, and enable extended range to perhaps solve the problem. It is no better than before.
The router is 30 feet away from my usual Tpad use location, and it was that same position when I got a connection in seconds before. It used to have a dot and usually 1 arc before, and since going to LR it always has 1 often 2 arcs so the signal strength is better. Bringing the Tpad close to the router (4 feet) does not help much.
So far I have not been able to test if the Dlink is at fault, but I still had this problem a month ago when I was visiting another home with a WIFI setup, but it was not as hard to connect.
