I have cable internet. My modem is a motorola surfboard(brand new from cable company) My router is a Belkin wireless G plus mimo part # F5D9230-4. I have a ps3 and a seen laptop connected to my router. When i am on my ps3 it loses connection and so does my computer. I've seen the router lose internet signal for a couple seconds and then come back on. Even though it doesn't mess with the computer unless the webcam is on it disconnects me from the playstation network. I've been in contact with the cable company, Belkin, and also Sony. Sony says open up some ports and call the router manufacture. Belkin says put your ps3 in the DMZ and call the cable company. The cable company says call the router. I feel like its a big *********** cause each company is trying to put the blame on someone else and not getting this problem solved. I've done all the steps that they say and it still does it almost right after i get off the phone with them. WILL SOMEONE PLEEEEASE HELP ME WITH THIS!!

Re: Keep losing internet signal
Have you tried updating the firmware of your router? Updating the firmware of the router will fix that issue. Make sure after updating the router's firmware, hard reset the router. To hard reset it, Press the reset button on the back of the router for about 20 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back. Reconfigure the wireless settings of the router. Make sure to change the wireless channel of the router to channel 11 or 1 and not 6 to avoid interference.

Yes this is possiable. First you need to unplug the power to the Motorola and the new router. Second connect the ethernet cable from the Motorola to the internet port on your second router. This port may be colored in yellow, marked as modem, or the ethernet port by its self. Third connect a ethernet cable from the new router to a desktop or laptop this is only to configure the new router. Next power on the Motorola and wait for the online light to become solid. Then plug in the power to the new router. Give the router about two minutes to obtain ip address from the motorola then try to get on the internet with the pc connected with the ethernet cable. Now you can run the new router setup cd on the wired pc to setup router. Once completed remove ethernet cable to the pc and connect to either network you have and you are good to go. Any questions just ask.
the modem is working fine. the connection might be dropping from the router side. You can try to upgrade the Firmware of the router. reduce the MTU on the router. If it is on 1500 the reduce it to 1400. Click Here from more info about routers
The only thing that you need to setup on your Linksys for it to work with cable is to make sure that DHCP is enabled on the router. You will need to plug your router into the modem via the ethernet cable and then plug your neighbors pc into a link port on the router (the cable modem plugs into the internet port) You will also need to follow the reboot procedure. Power everything off.
1: Turn on the surfboard and wait about 1 minute for the surfboard to make a connection with your ISP (the link light should come on).
2:Turn on your router and wait for your router to sync up with the surfboard .
3: Turn on your computer.
Whenever you plug anything into a cable modem, you must recycle power to the modem. It "remembers" the last device that was plugged into it, so it's memory needs to be cleared.
If the modem is actually passing out DHCP, then you have to connect the modem to the router 4 port lan side and not the wan port. Give the router a static ip like 192.168.1.2 and you can talk to it and configure the wireless features.
i doubt it will work. most times the cable companies give you a modem/router all in one box. the problem is there in no inbound connection to recieve an internet signal other than the cable cord connection.
with the dsl modem you will need a seperate router. they cost around $40-50 on avg
had same prob. 3 wired an 1 wireless . wireless would not conn. an others lose connection . after cable upgrade it was in router upgrade changed settings in router i had to call maker of comps an get them to reset ip adds took almost 3 hours to get them all working again they will do a remote access help by useing your ip threw your internet company hope this helps
