Question about Buffalo Technology AirStation WBR2-G54S (747464109220) Router

1 Answer

Browsers keep disconnecting

On multiple computers and on both Firefox and IE, the browser keeps timing out. It goes out in random intervals but as quickly as every 5 minutes and as long as several hours. To fix it, I have to right click on the icon in the system tray and "repair" the wireless network. It only takes a few seconds, but it's driving me nuts. Interestingly, the other Internet utilities such as AIM, MSN Messenger and Mozy don't seem to have any problems. Only the browsers are affected. The phones, which get the line before the Buffalo browser, have no problems. The wireless router is in close proximity to (i) a Vonage box that drives 2 cordless telephones, one at 2.4 ghz and one at 5.8 ghz (ii) a Samsung laser printer with a Linksys wireless print server, and (iii) a HP all in one printer. I installed the updated drivers from Buffalo. I wonder if it could be that the 2.4 ghz phone is causing interference, but can I somehow change the channel on the wireless router? Also, why would it just affect the browsers? Very strange! I think it's the router, but I am not 100% sure.

Re: Browsers keep disconnecting

First of all, make sure that your router is set to an idle time of zero in the connection menu, as inactivity can make the router disconnect from the net. Secondly, ensure that you have no corrupt temp files and cookies, use this excellent free programme to clear any temp files and redundant system files. You can also alter the channel that your router works on to(from 1 to 11) see if that stops it as it may be interfering with the phones on the 2.4mhz channel. You can also check in your router that it's not your isp by looking at the dns primary and secondary servers and the isp gateway, if there is nothing other than noughts in any of these settings, your isp may be at fault.

How to set default browser

I assume you have IE, Chrome, Firefox, etc, installed and you want to set one of these (or another) as your default browser. Very easy. If you are running Windows go to Start/Default Programs/Set Your Default Programs and then all loaded browsers will appear. Highlight the one you wish to be your default browser and then select "Set This Program As Default". Finished.

Try using a different browser. It could be possible that your current browser is corrupted or the security settings are high.

Here's a list of recommended browsers:

-Mozilla Firefox
-Google Chrome

Try downloading any of the browsers and see if it would work.

Hope this helps! :D

Facebook caused me all problem of my computer which I never had before I signed on facebook. Your face book is terrible source of viruses. It caused my comp. to die every minute. Can you help me to...

Facebook is not installed in your Computers (Desktop or Laptop). It is Online Application. You only get spam etc if you visit it. Make sure you have a good and protected Browsers. Windows Explorer (IE) or the Big Blue E in your computer is a Browser that reads FACEBOOK sites. So if your Browsers is not on high Security Level that it does not monitor websites that are infected or websites that intend to take information from your surfing activity, then you are in trouble. LIke Pop ups and pop ins or unexpected Tabs and Menus appearing on your page, asking you to download etc. Some use Firefox, Safari Browsers or Linux Browsers to secure their page. Windows 7 has a new capability of making you surfing Safe and Protected. It asks you if you want Private Surfing, meaning no one will catch your cookies (footsteps) while surfing their sites. They cannot put cookies into your computer telling them that you have visited their sites. So fare Facebook is safe if you know how to use the Setting, and Policy of Security for your friends and the World.

Zoom 3g 4501 router gets no internet connection.

Check your internet settings in IE & Firefox. Make sure there isn't anything checked off that would prevent you from browsing. Also check your Internet & Network connections in Control Panel. I had this problem once myself with Firefox and I actually had to System Restore back a week because something I downloaded had a Trojan and infected my browsers. AIM me @ candidate4death if you need further help. Thanks!

Configuration Issue

If the router is working in other respects, you probably don't need a new one. I wonder if this isn't a firewall problem, or if some other service is keeping you from this page? Try re-booting in safe mode (With networking), then enter the url and see if you get to the router page. For most computers, you can get to safe mode by repeatedly pressing the F8 key when you re-boot. Just keep tapping the key until you see the screen that offers safe mode (With networking).
