Sudden drop in wireless signal strength

Post by bcachot » Sat May 17, 2008 1:49 pm

I'm using a Navini modem for my 256Kb account. For the last 6 months or so it's been in the same spot and the light has been green with a rare flicker to orange. As of this morning the light is either orange or red. I checked the signal strength with Navini Diagnostics and it's between -90 and -100 db, which is too low. Is there a transmitter issue or what else could cause this sudden drop?

never mind. Powering the modem off and on for a few mins seems to have restored it to the 70-80 range.
