I have two computers. One is w/ a wireless router. Mine which is the second computer keeps connecting and disconnecting. I had determine that it was the router so I put in a new one. Ir seem to help for alittle while and then I started having problems again. I noticed if you unplug the cable modem it takes a very long time to reboot and I mean a long time. I am beginning to wonder if the cable modem needs to be replace. On the computer w/ the router/modem set up there isn't any connection problems. Thanks

More specific:
You said: "If you unplug the cable modem it takes a very long time to reboot.." I think you are reffering to the computer, correct?
What O.S. are U running?
PC?
MAC?
Linux?
What make/brand of router is?
If is a PC and takes long time to reboot, than U have a O.S. problem.

My wireless N router is not recognized at my pc . the setup page doesnt work, the wireless light is off basically nothing is working.


Hello,
You can try the following steps..
1) At the back/base of the router there will be a small hole/button as reset..press and hold it using a tooth pick or paper clip and hold it for 10 seconds..disconnect the power from the router and connect it back after 10 seconds and check whether the setup page works. 2) If the above step doesn't work press and hold the reset button for 40 seconds..after 40 seconds while still holding the reset..disconnect the power cable(keep holdin the reset) and connect the power back after 40 seconds(While still holdin the reset) and then let go of the reset button disconnect the power for 10 seconds and connect it back and check if the router setup works.
The wireless light will be lit only after a computer is connected to your wireless network. If the above two steps didnt work it looks like the router may be fried. You can get it replaced from Belkin as they have lifetime warranty on this product. The number is 1800-223-5546.
Hope this helped.

I am attempting to set up a network both wireless and wired but the router can not connect to the internet even with my user name and password from my internet company.it keeps telling me to disconnect the...


The first thing to try is to check if the cable or DSL modem is working properly. Does the LEDs light up when powered up and when you connect the computer to the modem, can you get into the Internet?
If so the the wireless router and/or the wireless card or LAN card are not configures correctly. Check Device Manager in the computers to see these LAN and wireless cards are working and enabled, if not then install the drivers fo these devices.
When the computer is connected to the modem and you cannot connect to the Internet then contact your Internet company and get them to test the connection to your modem. This will determine if your modem is faulty or not.

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g


Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.

First, you will need to select a Security Mode. Think of these modes as different languages, I can't tell you which one to choose, because depending on how new your computer(s) wireless card(s) are will determine how many languages they can "speak" with the wireless router. WPA2 is stronger than WPA, which is stronger than WEP. The easiest way to determine is to create a new wireless connection on your computer and see in the drop down list which modes your computer(s) cards can speak. You are looking for choices like WPA2, WPA, WEP (note which ones). Cancel out of there once you have determined the modes your computer(s) card(s) are capable of speaking.
In order to make the changes to your wireless router you will temporarily need to connect to it directly through an ethernet cable. Once you have run the cable from your computer to your wireless router...
In your web browser go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin". On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router. You want to go to the Administration tab and change the Router password to something else (write this down) to keep others from accessing your router. Click "Save Settings".
Next goto Wireless Tab -> Basic Wireless Settings and change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) to whatever name you would like (ex.- "keepout"), be sure to write this down on note as your SSID, and set Wireless SSID Broadcast to "Disable", then click "Save Settings".
Now goto Wireless Tab -> Wireless Security, select the highest security mode you determined your computer(s) are capable of speaking earlier and create a key (write down) and click Save Settings.
Disconnect the ethernet cable from you computer and router. Now back in your computer(s) you will need to either edit existing wireless connection or create a new wireless connection and enter the SSID, Mode, and Key you created earlier.
A knowledgeable hacker could still penetrate your network, but the hassle usually is almost always more trouble than it is worth and they will move on to plentiful easier targets (like you were).

My wirless signal keep connecting and disconnecting. It will not hold the connection for more that 5 seconds...what should I do


I used to have this same problem...The internet lady told me that some routers will not cooperate through the computer on their network. Mine would last a little longer than 5 seconds, but still the same thing. So basically she told me that I wasted 80 bucks on a router, and I had to upgrade to their wireless network.

MY ROUTER KEEPS LOSING CONNECTION


Hello fieldon68, & to all the rest with the same problem.

There are many things that could be wrong, but intermittant discounnects sounds very much like a interverance from another wireless device. (ie phone, cell, etc)

To try to address this issue, follow the steps below:
Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
  1. Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
  2. You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit ( unless you created a password, then enter that).
  3. On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
  4. The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
  5. Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
CauseYou get disconnected wirelessly mainly due to an environmental interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router. Wireless signals are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is one of the more popular reasons Belkin wireless connections can drop. Good Luck Mark P.S. Please leave a rating.

Laptop keeps disconnecting then connecting every so often.


Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?

Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?

If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.

I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.
