Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting constantly and have two isps with the same Wi-Fi name

My Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting constantly and I have to keep reconnecting to it over and over again and have two isps with the same Wi-Fi name. I have the number two beside my Wi-Fi name that I use to connect to the Internet. This must be the culprit, but I don't know. Got any ideas?

No clue; this will let you see your SSID and password:

Make the SSID's different if they are not. In your computer's WiFi connection dialog, forget any other networks that you do not want to connect to. Try these tips;

There are other options. Google for WiFi repeaters / range extenders, WiFi mesh systems / pods, powerline ethernet adapters, MoCA adapters. Good luck !

Re: Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting constantly and have two isps with the same Wi-Fi name

Okay, I figured why my Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting. The modem right next to the TV and my big computer. I don't have anyplace else in my house to move my big computer since it is in an excellent location where I can watch TV and work on my computer stuff. I could try to move the modem to the other side of the printer. Thanks for continuing to help me out with this. I'll keep working on this and try to figure out a solution.

I'm using my iPhone to answer the post. Sometimes, the spellchecker messes me up typing lol. Anyways, I tried moving the modem to the other side of the printer. I'll keep you posted on this and see if it did any better.

I figured out what it was. The speed was too slow. It's okay now.

O/k glad to hear. I re-opened this thread. Don't know why or who locked it..... So just for clarity and to benefit all readers here, was it what you posted ?

Yep, it was me that posted after I researched it a little more on my own. I never thought about the connection being so slow. It would disconnect after a few minutes of inactivity which I find a little strange. I got on this morning and it connected instantly.

Everything seems to be good now. I don't worry about the number two next to the ssid name 'cause I checked it the other day. It's not causing any trouble, but occasionally I get a pop up screen saying that I have two identical ssids. Didn't see anything in my network settings with two just alike.

You're welcome. I also decided to try to change my ssid name and that fixed the other issue I had with the duplicate Wi-Fi network name and the number 2 beside it. The speed is wonderful 😀.
