Try changing channels on your wireless router. Routers have configuration page where you can change the channel. Refer to your user manual on how to change the channel on the device.

You may also try moving the router to a different location or maybe on a higher location. To avoid interference.

Bad xbox 360 connection

You have two options to improve connectivity:

1) Move your XBox closer to the router. If you are connecting wirelessly, move your XBox as close as possible to your router. The farther away they are, the slower your connection speed.

2) Purchase an ethernet cable and plug it in. An ethernet cable can connect to your router and be plugged into the back of your XBox. This is the best way to utilize as much juice as possible from your router and get you the connection speeds you need to play online. Ethernet cables run about $20 depending on the length and quality, but its a great investment if you are doing a lot of online gaming.

Hope that helps!

I had this router connected to my desktop so my grand daughter could use her labtop,my desktop crashed and I had to replace my hard drive and my memory and lost all information on the router and I lost the...

You actually don't need a setup disk for setting up a router. Try the following steps.
  1. Reset your router to default configurations by holding the reset button for 15 seconds.
  2. Make sure your desktop is set to "obtain an ip address automatically."
  3. Connect an ethernet cable between your router and desktop.
This should get you connected to the router. If you want to make any configuration changes, perform the following steps.
  1. Open up a web browser.
  2. Type in the address bar (Default IP address of Linksys routers)
    This will connect you to the router.
  3. It will prompt you to login. The default username is blank (no text at all) and the password is admin.

We keep losing connection to internet when playing xbox 360 live. will be playing and screen freezes up for 15 to30 seconds then kicks us from xbox live.have a router with 3 xboxs hooked up.its unsecured...

If it's unsecured, there is a possibility that other people nearby are logging on to your internet connection through your open router. The more connections through the router, the slower it becomes. And the Xbox will drop is the connection becomes too slow.

As for a better answer as to why your losing your connection, try relocating the router. Often moving it higher up will allow a better signal. Other times a wall or shelf which contain metal objects is the cause. The signal weakens as it passes through construction materials, and nearby metal objects will definitely cause signal degradation. Try moving the router, sometimes only a foot or two is sufficient.

You should definitely learn the process to secure your router. It's like connecting your computer with a network cable to all of your neighbors computers and inviting them to see what you have stored on your machine. If their computer savvy, they can even watch what your doing in real time and even activate your camera and microphone! (It's been known to happen).

Securing the router involves the use of a network key (think of this as a password). Most modern routers have the default password printed on the body of the router. Using a special program installed when you installed the router, you can access the router and set the password. For example I use a Netgear router and the program that it installs is called "Netgear Genie". You access the router through the program using the routers user name and password (default as shipped is usually "admin" for both. Then set up the router to use security. After this all of your devices you authorize to connect to this router will also need to use the same Network Key (password). It's actually an easy process. For example, after you set the security, the labtop will attempt to connect and finding the system secured, ask you to enter the "network key" or password, to allow it to connect. It should ask you to remember this password so it can connect without assistance in the future

If your still uncertain, try running the router's setup program again. Most are designed to walk you through the process quickly. Just remember that all your devices will need to use the same password, the one that is printed on the side or bottom of the router. Usually it's something silly like "wonderfulwater456879" or whatever. Good luck and be more careful with your data in the future.

I have connection problem,,the connection go evry 10 minutes,,i change the router and the same problem,,the light of internet shut down evry 8..10..15 minutes

You can try reset the router if you are using one by pressing the reset button on the back or bottom of the router which might be in a little hole in which case you will need a pen or paper clip or something. If the issue persists, restart your modem, get a solid state and restart your router, get a solid status and restart your computer is necessary. You can check the settings of your router and see whether it is using DHCP, make sure your computer is not running a DHCP server kind of application. You might also need to contact your ISP and make sure your account and their connections are fine. Sometimes it may happen for high volume of users or some firmware installation on your modem.
