Try to lower down the MTU of the router.

1. Access interface of your router
- Open internet explorer, on the address bar type (192.168.1.1)
- Once it prompts you for username and password , do not type anything on the username and type "admin"
2. under "Setup" , please look for "MTU". Set it to Auto and change the size to "1492"
3.Click on "Save Settings"

Please let me know if this helps.

What make and model is the router?

I had a problem with a dlink dgl-4300 resetting every 2mins ended up sending it in to dlink to get another return.

If i knew the make and model I could get you do a firmware upgrade on the router.

Only other solution would be to just go out and buy a new one

Hmmm...make sure it isn't in direct sunlight or heating up too much. I had this problem, and i switched to a Netgear MIMO router that has held up perfect for 2 years.

Tip

Multiple Computers on Same Network, Continual Internet Connection Dropout


After adding that second or third computer to your home network are you constantly fighting over who's using the internet connection? When your high schooler logs into his facebook chat, are you getting dropped off of your internet connection?
Or have you added a wifi router and is your whole network not staying connected like it did before you added your wifi?
These are common issues and we answer these questions often at FixYa.
Here is s a tip that will get you past the internet connection being dropped by someone else on your network attempting to log into the internet or help you get that wifi up and working with out all the cut outs and drop offs.

Follow this simple procedure and you'll be amazed!
1. Turn off everything. Turn off computers, routers, modem, printers... everything that's on your LAN (local area network) or home ethernet.
2. Turn on your wireless router next. With the ethernet cable connected to your wifi router to your modem and let it cycle up to running. If you aren't running wifi, do this with your main router. Make sure your modem and everything else is still off.
3. Turn on your modem (enet cable attached to wifi router or main router) and let the modem cycle up to running.

What you've done is allowed your wifi router to be established as the "MAC" Address for your modem. Modems look for a single MAC address. Once the router has this address, the router will maintain the connection with the modem and the internet, AND will assign MAC addresses to your computers, network printers, network routers etc, while still maintaining your connection to the internet.

4. Turn on all other peripherals, computers and network printers. At this point the order of power up isn't important, because your router will be assigning separate addresses to all the computers, etc on your network.

That's it! The secret's out! Just keep this handy... remember if you have power outage, you'll need to reboot in this order again... Happy Home Networking

Computor doesnt connect to internet states a local network cable is unplugged 4 green lights on routerand one red light turn off all power and unplugged cable also reset button but no internet connection...


If the red light is your DSL light it means you have a line fault or no internet connection. Contact your provider

If the red light is your broadband / internet light - it means you are not logged on properly. Chck your username and password are correct - especially after the reset!

Cant connect to internet


Configuring router for Cable Internet (LINKSYS)

To configure your router for Cable you will need to set your router's WAN (INTERNET) port to 'Dynamic IP' (DHCP) option. The router is set to this option by default.

Configuration Steps:

Step 1
Connect the cable modem to the WAN (INTERNET) port of your router. If the modem has USB connection make sure that it is NOT connected to any computers via the USB cable and that the modem is switched to Ethernet (not USB). Only the modem's Ethernet port should be connected to the router's WAN (INTERNET) port.
Connect your computer(s) to the router's LAN port(s) or establish connection to it wirelessly.

Step 2
Open your Internet Explorer and log into your router by typing in its IP address (in most cases the default IP is http://192.168.1.1 ). Note that you do not have to be on the Internet in order to access this address because you are just connecting to your router's address. Specify username and password for your router, default is `admin' for password and username is blank (nothing).

Step 3
After logging into the router select Setup. Set Internet Connection Type to 'Automatic Configuration (DHCP)' option. Under Setup, click on MAC Address Clone tab. Enable it and click on "Clone My PC's MAC". Do this from the computer which the cable modem was directly connected the last time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save settings and reboot the router.
Step 4

Click on SAVE SETTINGS and then on REBOOT THE DEVICE including the cable modem to apply the new configuration.

If you are having difficulties accessing the Internet, you need to:

- Log into the router and go to Status page. Note what IP address it is getting on the WAN (INTERNET) interface. If the IP address you see under WAN (INTERNET) appears to be in the same range you are using on your network (e.g. 192.168.1.x), you will need to change the range you are using on your LAN to something different, e.g. 192.168.88.1. You can do this on your router under Setup > Basic Setup. Note that after changing the IP of your router you will only be able to access it through its new IP, e.g. 192.168.88.1.

- Uninstall your antivirus/firewall software (sometimes disabling or closing the software is not enough) and reboot your PC. After establishing the Internet connection through the router, reinstall your antivirus/firewall software.

Belkin router frequent internet connection loss


hello,

...first of all :
latest firmware version is -all i know- version 3.01.29 so my question is : where did you get / found firmware version 3.01.30 ? can you give me a link ?
...then :
after installing the new firmware causing this problem after installation you should save your settings to take care. then you should first use internal 'new start / restart-funktion' of your router.
try this, if it helps.
when it should not help, then save settings as well and make hard-reset on your router. for this you press the reset-button at the back of your router - long enough, watch the blinking symbols on front.

after them you should ONLY MANUALLY configure the router for internet access, DO NOT USE the installation disc ! for manual configuration you should connect the router and your computer by cable, using ethernet-port #1 at the router.
then open your browser, enter 192.168.2.1 at address bar, no http or anything before or after, only this number... then the web-interface will be opened and on the left you find the navigation-menu.
enter menu 'internet wan' -> for usual highspeed / broadband- access you will get access-codes from your isp (internet service provider), then the connection type is pppoe...

this is most usual procedure...

try this and give feedback... :)

sincerely nayss

Router gets disconnected


If you know how to open the setup page of the router, look for MTU. Normally it is set to Auto with default size of 1500. Now set it to manual and change the value to 1463 and save the changes. Power cycle the router by unplugging the power for 30 seconds then plug it back in. Observe your connection if it keeps on dropping.

Another is you need to isolate the problem if its the router or the modem. Try to connect your PC directly to your modem and observe if it does the same thing. If it does the same problem, call your Internet Provider to fix the modem.

If the problem still persist on the router after changing the MTU, try to update the Firmware of the router and hard reset it by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds then power cycle it.

D-link DIR-635 router


Hi, I am assuming that you can connect to your router's web based interface (192.168.0.1). On a PC LAN wired to the router, open a browser; Type "192.168.0.1"; Log-in username/admin and password/(blank); Go to Tools > Misc and the option to select the WAN speed (bottom); Lock the speed down on the WAN port of your router to 10Mbps (Some versions do not have this feature). Hope this works for you. If not pls post back with your modem brand/model. You may also want to log the IP settings (IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Servers) of the PC that is directly connected to the modem when you can access the Internet when not using the router. Good luck and kind regards.
