One way to prevent dropped network connections
Authored by: redsweater on Dec 13, '06 08:04:09AM

Something I've noticed helps the robustness of a wireless connection is to have more than one router in the network. For instance, I had a pretty flaky connection from one computer in my house, and then added an Airport Express to the network topology. Before, when the connection between the computer and the (only) router was lost, it meant the Airport network was gone, so I would get disconnected. Now, with the APX on the network, it gives my computer something to "hang on to" even during the spotty times, so the network stays alive even if, for instance, I was to power cycle the main router.
