Router keeps knocking off laptop and desktop ISP service

My router keeps knocking my laptop offline, the router was setup next to my roomates desktop and it worked fine for a week, then off one day back on never consistent. we tried using the manual CD and it keeps saying check the router and restart, and somehting about a reset button but I found none on my router. If it is not the cable ISP, and his service works fine disconnected, it has to be the router. I am wonderingi if buying a cheap one is causing me to get this spotty service? I have been told that I need to synch it with the desktop using the setup CD, but my roomate doesnt think so. The Indian call center are hard to understand and follow... can you help?

HEY,
Make sure the router is properly connected and the physical setup is ok, not kept close to any emitting electronic device like a speaker. Connect the router hard wired, Access the modem's gui by the ip address. (type in ipconfig in you command window, the default gateway will be your modems IP) once you type that ip address in the address bar of IExp. it will ask you for the uid and the password, leave it blank or use admin as username and password is blank... Take the uid and the password for your internet from your internet service provider... eg AT&T or Primus Canada. Enter that in there and and try to configure the router.

but before you move on to the router. make sure the modem has the DSL light solid and not blinking... Try it and let me know..

Hi Good Day,

1) Check if your router have the capability to broadcast b/g/n signal.

2) you try replacing your son's desktop wireless card compatible with your router.

3) you can call your ISP and request to change the router that can broadcast b/g/n signal.


God Bless.

1 If you don't have a switch connected to the router or if your other devices are not on the Wireless allowed list in the router whoever has priority on the connection will knock the others device off that is xbox, laptops etc. Because bandwidth is being decreased and the connection is giving first come first serve priority.
You will need a switch or setup each wireless device in the router .
Instructions:
. power router off
2.connect all three computer you want to connect.
3. start computers one at a time completely
4. check router for status light per computer to see if device is seen by router.
5. open web page to see if each computer is online.
7. do ipconfig / release/renew if not connected

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.

How do you hook up a dynex 802.11g wireless router


Hi,
To setup your Dynex router you can follow the below steps
  1. Connect the router with a power cable and switch on the poser, reset the router with its reset button normally you can find the reset button on the rear side of the router for 30 seconds and then switch off and on the power
  2. After reset conenct the router to any laptop or desktop with a cable and also connect the router to the modem or the internet service provider cable
  3. after all connection lights will come on go to right hand side corner of the computer and check if the network connection is showing connected
  4. Once you are connected with a wired connection open a page of internet explorer and type in router addess normally it will be http://192.168.0.1 and then type the username as "admin" and the password is blank so leave the password box as blank
  5. You need to set it up as per your internet service provider if you do not have any fixed IP address provided by ISP then select dynamic IP address and then click on clone mac address after saving these settings on the router setup page you can check if you are able to access internet then you can do the wireless settings
  6. Once the router setup page is open you can confugure the router easily without the CD setup.
  7. The advantage is you do not have to run the setup CD and you can also do wirless settings for your wireless laptops or devices
  8. Go to the wirless settings page and you can select the wireless on and off or you can setup a wireless security to avoide your router with unauthorized acess
  9. I would recomend always keep the wireless network secured if you are using the router for a home or small office as there can be people who will be using your bandwidth for free without your permission
  10. one more tip i would like to give whenever any kind of setup is required on the router do it by a wired connection only and not thought a wireless pc or laptop as it can disconnect you from the router in between of your setup
  11. WEP is the kind of wireless security which is easy to setup and remember and most wireless cards of laptops and computers support it

How to setup laptop and desktop pc network using nexswitch sd080s router i have a samsung r60 laptop on vista and a desktop on xp . i have made sure they have the same workgroup name but i cant get them to...


What you have is not a router, it is only a switch. You need a router to get multiple PCs setup to access Internet. To help understand, a router can be a switch, but typically a consumer level switch is not a router. Workgroup name doesn't matter for accessing Internet, only for PCs to access each other's files.

You need to buy a router and use it instead of the switch. The router will be able to hand out multiple IP addresses with something called DHCP. This is the reason your current setup does not work, as you are only getting one IP address from your ISP, and the first PC to come online gets it, leaving the other with none. A router will hand out many addresses and then translate back to the ISP.

As far as a link, whatever router you buy will come with a manual for setup. The process is very simple.

I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router


  1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
  2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
  4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
  5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
  6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
  7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
Hope this helps!
