Question about ASUS WL-500g Premium Router

1 Answer

ASUS WL 500 G Premium Connection dropouts.

I have two laptops that use wifi and a desktop connected by LAN. About once per hour the wifi disconnects and then reconnects after a while, 5- 10 minutes. Both laptops have this same condition. Neither one sees the wifi. The desktop remains connected. I've wiggled all connectors, attached and reattached the antenna. Is this unit junk? Should I send it back under warranty or am I missing an auto disconnect "Feature".
Any suggestions would be apprecited. Thanks.

    I fixed it! The problem was interference with my AMWUC797 2.4 GHz Digital Cordless Telephone. We noticed that the computers disconnected whenever someone was talking on the phone. Tthis would happen even if they are in a different room. The router is in the basement about 8 meters from the computers. The cordless phone base is on the same floor as the computers and only 2 meters away.
    I switched to an old 900 MHz phone and now everything is great.

    Has anyone else seen this?

I do not want wireless router to assign ip addresses for lan


not sure if you are doing it right
your wireless router has 2 "sides" one is it's upload, it's wan network and that is where you should set DHCP - so that the router itself gets an ip from your LAN
other side is behind your wireless router and there DHCP should also be off. it would be best if you could put your router in bridged mode - just to extend your network over WIFI

I have asus router WL 500 g premium , when i conect my router to the power , all led form lan it open bu no lan it is on router . router not conect , pls help me .


Have you tried to reset the router? Most routers have a reset button in the back of the router (where the LAN ports are located) that you can hold in for ~30 seconds to reset the router to factory defaults which could also resolve the issue you're having as well. Although if you have a computer connected using a patch cable (CAT5) to a computer that is turned on and your not getting a link indicator light on your router then try another port to see if the led is visible then, if not try another patch cable or try connecting it to another machine.

I am not able to properly set up my network with an ASUS Wl-500B


Both routers need to be on the same IP scheme and subnet i.e. 192.168.0.X subnet 255.255.255.0. First, unplug the Asus router. Next, make sure you have connection to the internet by hooking directly to the Apple router. Once you've established a connection to the internet plug the Asus router into the Apple router but go LAN port to LAN port.

Connecting 2 routers (ASUS WL-500W and D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless)


This will give you a "Double NAT" setup. Meaning, Your D-Link router is connected to the external internet address assigned to you by your internet service provider. More than likely this is a DHCP address you do not control. Your D-Link router is then translating the address to the 192.168.1.x network. This is the first NAT translation. You are then connecting the ASUS router to DLINK, causing a second NAT translation. (Internet ADSL --> D-Link WAN Port --> D-Link Lan Port --> ASUS WAN Port --> ASUS Lan Port to computer/server/etc. ) If both of your routers are giving out DHCP addresses, then this is all that is required.
