Various Router Problems in Windows® 7
What are the different problems that can occur with routers connected to Windows 7 System?
Router is an important hardware device for the Windows 7 system that enables the user to connect two or more computer networks for establishing data transfer and image sharing. The router in the system might face many problems that prevent the user from sending and sharing information with other computer systems. The most common problem that is faced by the router is the limited security. Sometimes it interferes with digital TV antenna and also it might interfere with wireless signal that leads to noise rating. The router sometimes does not allow the connection with the network due to frequent drop in connection link. The problem mainly occurs due to the faulty adapter, non-compatibility of drivers and interference of electro magnetic fields. When there is a router problem, the user can experience frequent drop in network connection, slow web-interface, slow data transfer, no response to ping command, and Router crash.
Discussed below are a few tips to fix the router problems with Windows 7:

The routers must be in good working condition for enabling effective data transfer between the computer systems without any break up in the communication link.
