A common problem. First disable the wireless utility that came with the wireless interface in your computer. Let XP ( Vista? ) handle wireless connectivity alone - for now. Take the vendor's wireless utility out of your startup folder. Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest driver & utility software from the manufacturer of your interface ( not the router ). Have only ONE thing asking for an IP address.
If that doesn't help, you may be getting interference from another recently added wireless device or appliance in the area. Access your router ( using your browser ) through the gateway address and lock it onto channel 1, 5, or 11 as an experiment. If one isn't reliable try another. Yeah, it ain't simple. You say it's NOW intermittent - what has changed in your world since it was reliable?

I have to reset (unplug power, wait 10 secs, then plug back in) a lot to have internet access. The router is recognized and it says that I am connected, however it also says that I have no internet...


There are lots of factor why you have that kind of problem when it comes to your router. Before following the steps in this, check if your computer has a stable Internet connection when connected directly to your broadband modem. If you do not have a stable Internet connection with your modem, kindly contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

May I know what is the model and version of your Linksys router?

If you run into Intermittent Wired Connections Using a Router:

Step1: Enabling MTU on the Router

- Access the router's web-based setup page.

- Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

- Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

- A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

- NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

Step2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, look for MTU and set it to Manual. Enter the MTU value of your Internet connection in the Size field.

1468. The size DHCP or cable providers prefer.

1400. Maximum size for DSL.


Step3: Save settings.

===================================================================

If you run into Intermittent Wireless Connections Using a Router:


Check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks.


Regular wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

> Wireless interference within the network.

> Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.

> Firmware is corrupted.
===================================================================
NOTE: If the procedure does not work, needs to update the router

disconnect all the connections from the router. connect only the computer to the port 1 on the router. check the lights on the router.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet


Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

Wireless signal intermittent


First make sure you have the latest update for your bios and wireless device, your os is probably non preload so clean any access connections utility provided by ibm, rather than using the ibm thinkvantage access connection make sure to use the windows own utility to control the wireless device

Still No Internet


I understand. You're two computers needs to be both connected to the router. Can you tell me if your Desktop computer has an Ethernet port? Your modem should only be connected to your router. Then, the two computers have to be connected both to the router. The Desktop will be wired to the router using an Ethernet cable and the Laptop through wireless connection.

Then, access the router's setup page again. You know how to do it, right? Remember launching IE and typing 192.168.1.1? Once you're in Go to STATUS page and look for IP address. Please let me the IP address that the router receives from your modem.

The reason why you need to connect the computers to the router, is because your ISP gives only Internet IP address. If you will connect your Desktop through USB to the modem, then there is no Internet IP address left for the router for your wireless computer.

The router should be the one to receive the Internet IP address and it will be the one to share it to the two computers behind it.

Please update me about this.

UNABLE TO FIND IP ADDRESS


I think the Ethernet cable needs to run directly to your router/modem, you can't bypass it through a laptop (as far as I know!)
