You’ve heard of the ASUS AC3200 router and how amazing it is to increase your speed on the internet. The first few months were fantastic after the purchase.
But then, for no rhyme or explanation, you had one of your computers disconnected. This pattern of disconnecting and reconnecting would continue for days and, despite all, nothing would help to fix it.
Steps to ASUS AC3200 Connection Issue
We will list a variety of connectivity problems below, why they happen, and how to solve them.
Step 1: Upgrading firmware
Updating an Asus ac3200 firmware is easy, all you have to do is follow these simple steps:
- To fire it up, double click your web browser button.
- Look for a blank strip now, with a search icon written on the far right corner of it.
- Select and type 192.168.1.1. on it. A fast Google search will be helpful if you don’t recall the IP address.
- In your account info, hit enter and type. The big blue button that reads Sign in is pressed.
- You will find another one, similar to our browser search strip, under the Reboot option.
- There’ll be a text written inside this strip. You can see a yellow light flashing in front of the line of text.
- Tap on the light that’s yellow.
- A menu will pop up telling you about a new update to the firmware. You can continue by clicking on the Update Now option.
Step 2: Control channels
You can change channels to either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz to fix this problem.
Following these steps will allow you to do that:
- Open a tab on the internet.
- To open the user interface for your router, click on the search bar and enter 192.168.1.1. This is your router’s IP address. On Google, you can check for a router’s IP address.
- Pressing Enter will open the menu for login. Type in your password and user name. To continue, click on the sign-in button.
- You can find a setting called wireless under Advanced settings. Only press it.
- Click and change the band setting to either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz, respectively.
- Shift it from auto to a channel that is not your current control channel by clicking on the Control Channel setting.
- To save your modifications, click on Apply.
Step 3: Router’s antenna
Often the antenna of your router might have gotten loose, causing its direction to change. Try to change the angle of the antenna to either 45 or 90 degrees.
