    Thanks. I think you are right, though haven't hooked up new router yet. Bypassed router to modem, and haven't been dropped since. Thanks for responding so quickly too.

As I've stated in many previous posts both Belkin and D-link routers (wired and wireless) are "famous" (for lack of a better word) for dropping connection with your internet carrier.

I *highly* recommend Linksys routers ...whether you get wired or not, they're just plain better ...and powered by Cisco technology. The best part - they're roughly the same price or cheaper than those "other" routers.

Go buy one at Walmart. Hook it up. See the difference. If it doesn't do everything like it should, take it back and you've lost nothing. If it does, take the Belkin and sell it on Craigslist or eBay.

Hope this helps - remember to rate

Here's how to connect the router.

From your broadban modem, connect the ethernet cable to the Internet/WAN port of the router. Then using another ethernet cable, connect your laptop to port 1 on the back of the router. Now run the setup CD that came with your router. After setting it up, it will tell you to disconnect the ethernet cable from your laptop to try the wireless function. Good Luck!

Belkin Nimo wireless router internet drop outs


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

My Belkin n1 router disconnects from telstra every 2 hours - exac


This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to www.belkin.com and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.

It might be because of other electronic devices that works nearby in similar frequency...devices lik microwave oven, inverters, modems provided by the ISP which comes along with a battery backup, especially RCA modem which doesnt allows other wireless devices to work nearby it... try to relocate the router to a well ventilated area, and make sure you have kept the router atleast 5 feet away from other electronic devices...it could help....

Drops the internet connection and has to be rebooted at least once a day.


Try to reduce the MTU of the router. If you're on DSL, set the MTU size to 1492, for Cable connection size is 1400 or 1463. You can do it on the router's admin page http://192.168.1.1

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
