Question about MSI Wireless-G RG54G3 Router
Hi, The router works fine for both wired and wireless connections for the first few minutes. But after a while without using it, internet connection is blocked. With blocked I mean that when i check the status of the internet connection, I find out that I am still connected with my ISP but somehow access from my browser is blocked and therefore it times out after a while. I cannot figure out after how many minutes but I think it is quite random. Idle timeouts are set to 0 seconds. In the System Log I get the following entry: 13 August 2006 08:43:35 PM Unrecognized attempt blocked from 188.8.131.52:4660 to 184.108.40.206 TCP:139 Can you help? What is this unrecognized attempt? Could it be that DHCP is setting the wrong IP address to my PC? Thanks Prinz
Your modem and router might have some conflicts in the IP address. Try to change the IP Address settings o f the router. Used 192.168.1.2 instead of the default 192.168.1.1. You have to access your linksys router setup. Re-start computer and router after changing the IP.

If it is a DHCP problem like mine, here's the situation: I have a Motorola WR850G (wireless) and the problem I have is with the DHCP assignment of the DNS. I have my wireless laptop set up to automatically receive the IP address and DNS assignment from the modem. What's happening (verified via ipconfig/all from the command prompt) is that the router is correctly assigning an IP address but assigning its own address as both the default gateway (which is correct) and the DNS server address (which is incorrect). In the past, it passed on one of the two DNS addresses dynamically assigned by my ISP. Since it's giving out its own address address as the DNS I'm not getting out on the internet unless I use IP addresses in place of URLs! I can successfully connect to other PCs on my home network since the default gateway is correct, but unless I statically assign a DNS address to my PC (which is a hassle since I move around a bit) I'm essentially shut off from the internet. While this might not be (or solve) your problem, the bottom line is, if you're TCP/IP properties on your interface are set up for assign IP address & DNS automatically instead of statically: 1) go to Start-Run and type in "cmd" - then OK to get to a command prompt, 2) type "ipconfig /all" at the command prompt and 3) check the DNS value assigned to your interface. - If it's the same as your Default Gateway address you have the same problem I have. I haven't found the solution yet, only the work-around of statically assigning the DNS value on the PC.

Contact your ISP for this issue. He will reset the time for your account.

The problem of internet getting shut after a while is a peculiar problem with standard Compex NP28g. The 100% resolution to this problem is to simply upgrade the firmware which u should easily get from compex tech support in singapore. Regards, Majid Khan

Sorry, but i've only recently joined this site, so if its too late apologies, but most people have this problem, after internet innactivity, setting timeout to 'o' doesnt do anything on any routers ive worked with. Search and download a little programme that constantly pings a certain site it uses itself to simulate you being active online. It too frustrates me! :-(
