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?

Re: Router loses connection

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.

Cannot get wireless computer upstairs to find Kodak wireless printer . Starting having the problem after switching from cable to dsl. Can access network without a problem and all my security settings are...

I think you may need to reset your router and let your printer to try to find your router again. But keep a note of all the settings on your router so you don't lose them. Any chances that your printer can be trying to connect to other wireless device other than your router and look like connected? Restart your printer and remove the settings on your printer and try the steps as you are setting up the wireless connection between your router and your printer for the first time.

After over a year of good use, the past 2 weeks have seen the router repeatedly lose the internet connection after a minute or so of use. It reboots ok initially but then loses the connection again.

Try to upgrade the firmware of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.
enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router.
Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router.
After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you reset and reconfigure the router.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router

No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

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.
