Connection keeps cutting out

My connection cuts out between 10 and 20 times a day. I have to keep switching it on and off to get it working again. It even cuts out when a door is slammed or the dog barks!! BT assure me I have a stable line, I can only assume its the router? Any Suggestions?

Have you checked your cable / DSL modem? It could be a loose or faulty CAT5 cable - or inproper software settings in the router. Type or in your browser address line - and look for the set up wizard - follow the bouncing ball.

Slow Internet/Keeps Cutting Out

Hi try to test your internet connection by using a a eithernet cable and directly pluging into you router and computer. If your connection works fine with that connection then try to reset your router back to factory settings and use a new password just in case someone has been bumming off your wifi. also contact your service provider to have them ping your system, they can test the connection from their end.

hi good day,

i do believe that you got that router from your internet provider?
what i can suggest is have them replace the modem because it's not normal for that modem to cut your connection more often. call your isp now.

The router keeps cutting out(every 30 mins or so) and I have to keep rebooting by disconnecting and reconnecting mains

theres something interfering with your connection most likely its to close to your main internet connection and then again it might be because your to far away from the router if that dont work try and delete the router software data and reinstall it some times the files arent work great like they should and may be haveing dificulties trying to process the connection to establish it properly. I hope this helps.

DI-524 does not maintain connection

Some ISPs are cutting connection after a set period of idle time to conserve users per router ratio. There are programs to "keep alive" connections (some router have this ability built-in also).

Linksys Power cut problem

With regard to power cuts, i highly suggests you to buy a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) to prevent further damage to your router. You can simply reconfigure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router's Setup Page. Go to, go to wireless tab and you can change the network name as well as enable the wireless security.
