ANSWER : I have had the solid red light come on every so often. I would power cycle the nettalk and it would be find for a while, then go out again. The solution is to assign the nettalk device a STATIC IP that is outside of the range of ip addresses assigned by your router for DHCP.

Example, my linksys e1200 router by default assigns DHCP addresses starting at and goes to If you assign the mac address of the nettalk to an ip outside that range (that is not because that is your router) like it will solve this issue. whenever the nettalk connects to the router, it will always get, I think the nettalk can't handle getting different ip addresses from the DHCP server.

Then tTurn off the nettalk, then do a power cycle on your router.

SOURCE: random disconnects

I have had the same problem. A technician from Zyxel company advised me to change the firmware to the newer one. My firmware is V3.40(MV.3) dated 07/29/2005. I received a new firmware file by email. It's 2,7 Mb binary file. I havent done it yet because I need to be sure there's no other way. It's the last resort I'll take. Now I'm experienting with WAN settings. Make sure you have WAN backup set to DSL Link, Fail tolerance 2, Recovery Interval 30 secs, Timeout 3 secs, Traffic Redirect disabled (if you have dynamic IP addess; this is in case of adsl connection). Above mentioned settings help a lot but sometimes it still loses connection. I've heard Zyxel Prestige 2602 HW tends to disconnect from internet randomly.

SOURCE: D-Link DI-534 Starting up problems

Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.

try to open an Internet browser and type in on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.

SOURCE: just connected router to clear network modem and

Hi, I also have the clear network and haven't had this issue. Did you hook it up per the instructions? You hook the ethernet cable from the clear modem to the phone modem and then hook an ethernet cable to your computer or router. I think it's important to hook up per their instructions, to the phone modem first. You should give them a call, they'll work with you and help you to install everything correctly.

SOURCE: Getting Disconnected

Either you hava an IP conflict (two devices use the same IP address eg printer/laptop/ ethernet adapter/ wlan card etc. etc.. Look at the device map and check all IP addresses, if in conflict: give another one manually. Ips like can be changed by giving another number to the last "space" behind the point (192.168.1. (1-99). Every device must have a unique one. Vista normally does that but sometimles the IPs are preset andf cannot be changed by VISTA.

2nd possibility: You have an onboard "N/G" or "A" adapter and / or ethernat card and a USB or external WLan adapter, all activated in parallel. Makes the firewall go crazy, disconnects adapters constantly, which try to reconnect.Disdable all but one. Then enable one after the other to find the "impossible" combination or just use one.

Lose nettalk connection from router after on phone for twenty minutes

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 brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, 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, arc 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 change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.
