Question about D-Link Vonage-enabled Wireless Router (VWR-VR)

1 Answer

Router keeps going off

For the past week my router will lose internet signal which shuts down not only my internet acces but my phone as well. I tried unplugging from unit itself, it does not work, tried resetting router that does not work. When I unplug it from the wall outlet itself and plug it back in, it will then come back on. It does this 3,4,5 times a day. Also, happens when I am on phone as well. It goes out and have to hang up and unplug from wall outlet and wait and plug back in so it will come on. Is it the router or something else?

Try to hard reset the router and re-flash or update the firmware of the device. Make sure to know all the internet settings before resetting the router so you can recongure it again.

You can ask your router manufacturer on where to download firmware.

Hope it will hel you.

I purchased mu HP Officeject 6500 Wireless within the past 12 months. I have had multiple instances where the printer stops scanning and sometimes stops printing. My tech guyhas fixed it 4-5 times and it...


Might be a problem with the router, or router location. Check the signal strength from the printer.
If your signal only has 1 or 2 bars, it could lose its connection very easily.

You should be able to move your modem and router, anywhere in the house, and it will not erase settings. Just have to have a strong cable signal going to the modem.

If the signal strength is not the problem, your router could be getting hot and cutting out. Or getting old and going bad. Try also resetting the router and reconfiguring it.

Continually disconnects internet at random


You have WR160N router. This router has issues with the firmware.
Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

Trendnet router


I know you've heard this many times by now, but disconnecting the power from the router for about 30 seconds then reconnecting power should work. Obviously not. If your Xbox and laptop are doing the same, then it's not a computer problem; we can narrow it down to the router, the modem, or the internet connection itself (whether it be DSL or Cable). You may end up having to throw money at the problem and purchasing a new router. I'd recommend an 802.11n router from Linksys. If you're not willing to shell out money, even if you are, you should really try the Trendnet web site or giving them a call. You may just need to update the firmware. Try starting with Trendnet since the problem can be narrowed down to your router. Please let me know what happens.

The home phone service has not worked for one week.


Hi,
You can also type 192.168.0.1 into the internet URL address bar and it'll ask you for a username and password. If you haven't set one up, try 'admin' and 'password'. Then look for a menu listing like 'Diagnostics' or something. (The layout varies on different Router brands) Now click 'Reboot Router' and wait until it has completely finished and all the lights have stopped flashing and are remaining on.
Now try your Home phone.
If it still doesn't work, try replacing the microfilter thingy that separates the computer cable and the phone cable (Usually a spare is bundled with the router when you buy or receive one, look in the box that the router came in, if you still have it). Otherwise contact your internet service provider and get them to check the line, as sometimes the signal 'drops' for certain reasons..
Good Luck!
