Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

Router loses connection

About every twenty minutes or so for the past two years I have had to walk upstairs and reset the router. I did not have this problem when I had DSL, but when I switched to Bright House (cable modem), thats when the problem began. I tried setting up the router several different ways but I still have the problem. I am sure there is some sort of simple solution, but until I know what that is I feel like a real idiot and just keep going back upstairs into my roomates room and pressing the little reset button on the back of it. Can anyone help me please?

Somebody else on this site had similair troubles and it was down to the fact that the cable company change the IP address of the connection frequently. Now, if this is the case your router will lose connection if it's a seperate modem as it will lose the modem IP address. I would contact your provider for a solution if this is the case.

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.

I keep losing my wireless connection inside my home. My modem is in the basement and I want to use my laptop upstairs. I use an N router and have cable internet. My house is also wired with Cat 5 wiring...

Well , the connection upstairs depends on the capabilities of the router that how much coverage it can give for the wireless clients associated.

Since , it is a N-router so try upgrading the drivers for it , the technical term will be firmware.Upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest one and you might have your issue resolved.

Connecting to a lapto

Hi rgf47331,

When you move upstairs there is a solid wall in between that interfears with the signals.The only thing you can try is calling up belikin and asking them to check your settings on the router and see if changing the mode or channel helps. i wont recommend you do that on your own as you may end losing the connection altogether.

I hope this helped

Losing connection from the router

You may have an IP address conflict with another machine. why don't you just plug the router into the computer to see if that solves your problem first. If it doesn't. you should contact your internet carrier. You can also try this: turn everything off, and unplug EVERYTHING for a few minutes. Plug the AC adapters back into the devices FIRST, then into the wall. this will often drain power and solve IP issues.
