Why does chatropolis chat room keeps dropping out
I have shaw cable and the hi speed internet and live in an apartment.
so for the last 2 months my connection randomly drops and takes forver to come back so ive called shaw they've send out a tech who suggested i go out buy a dual band router so i bought the belkin N750 and its still happening, ive changed modems from shaw.
I also have better luck with a fixed channel, either 1, 6 or 11, rather than automatic channel selection.
After making these changes, you may need to reboot the router. I tried it with my laptop, which has been continually dropping the connection, and so far, all day long, I have not had a single dropout! In Ubuntu, in the top right, click on the wireless network icon that shows connectivity.
In the dropdown menu, at the bottom, select "edit connections" and then highlight your wireless connection name. That took care of my problem, and hopefully will yours, too.
I get this at the Help Desk quite a bit and you all really do need to know what's up with that so you can quickly get back to chatting again.
I figure 5 URLs for starters "should" be enough as the life cycle of avatars tend to be short before "on to the next one" but I'll consider upping that limit to accommodate if necessary.
